Upright Commercial Freezer
Food programs are our busiest areas – the Food Bank helps 3,000 people every month and the Community Services kitchen provides over 50,000 meals a year. We need a new (or used, in good condition) commercial grade freezer to replace an older unit that is rapidly wearing out. $3,400 purchase price.
LCD monitors & peripherals
Three times each year the TD Securities Computer Lab hosts a special graduation ceremony for children and youth. All students who complete the introductory course receive a refurbished desktop computer.
Donations of the following will allow us to send each child home with their own computer:
- PC Desktops that are 1-3 years old
- 17″ (minimum) computer monitors
- Black USB keyboards and mice
