A huge thanks to Sabre Holdings/Travelocity.ca for hosting a food drive to benefit Red Door Shelter. On May 14, 2013 volunteers from Sabre Holdings/Travelocity.ca delivered much needed non-perishable food items to the Red Door Shelter Food Bank. The group stayed on to assist our Housing & Outreach team sort and organize the donations and help distribute to our ex-residents. They also willingly helped out in other areas including the donation room and the kitchen.

The students put on a spectacular show and raised approximately $3600 with all of the proceeds going directly to Red Door Shelter.
