At Christmas this year the staff at Shift Cognitive Therapy donated 100% of a day’s revenue to Oakville’s Fareshare Food Bank to support the work of that organization. According to their website, the Fareshare Food Bank is a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers that has been providing for needy members of the Halton community since 1988. They support approximately 1200 people each month and collect most of their non-perishable food items during the holidays. Monetary donations are used throughout the year to purchase perishables like milk, cheese, meat and vegetables. Their website provides information about how members of the community can host a successful food-drive.
The food bank is located at 1240 Speers Road in Oakville and can be reached by phone at 905-847-3988.
Shift Cognitive Therapy Oakville is a psychology practice that helps people learn to manage anxiety, stress and depression.
