A big thank you to the Meridian Credit Union on Castlemore Avenue in Markham for their very kind donation.
Eugene Chan, the branch manager, came to visit Wayne's cup to present the cheque and see first hand the work we undertake.
Eugene said that he was proud to partner with Wayne's cup and looks forward to working together to build better, more prosperous lives in Markham. He went on to say that the Meridian Credit Union invests a minimum of 4% of pre tax earnings every year back into local organisations like Wayne's cup, which make a meaningful difference in the community they serve.
Shelley Daffu, our senior program manager, thanked Eugene for the kind donation and said that the money would be used to allow students who do not have the financial means to attend Wayne's cup to join our program.
We are so grateful for the donation we received from The Olive Branch Community Church which has enabled us to have an illuminated sign fabricated.
This sign is vital to help to put Wayne’s cup on the map, particularly for the café which sells the fresh salads, paninis, cakes and cookies produced by our students each day in our kitchen.
A huge thank you to everyone at The Olive Branch Community Church.
Our old stove at Wayne's cup had pretty much come to the end of its useful life and we needed to get a new one. However, with no available funds we were really struggling.
Along came The Home Depot to the rescue with a state-of-the-art GE Profile convection stove.
We are so grateful to to Bshen Clarke and the team at The Home Depot Markham North store on Castlemore Avenue and now our students can continue to baking all the goodies we sell in our café.
