Summer Clothing Campaign
Our 2021 Summer Clothing Campaign was a HUGE success and saw BFU help outfit approximately 250 individuals in our community with a fantastic selection of summer clothing. Not to mention diverting thousands of pounds of perfectly good textiles from our landfills!
Estimated costs to purchase the clothing that was donated to these individuals was $80,000 (using Walmart.ca price comparisons).
Free Winter Outerwear Pop Up Shops: Nov/Dec 2020
BFU hosted 2 FREE Pop Up shops last Nov/Dec where we welcomed over 250 families to come in and shop for their winter outerwear household needs! It was a great success.

Back to School Mask Campaign
Late August of 2020 we received news that our children would be returning to in-class learning for school, with mandatory masks. BFU jumped in and helped facilitate the distribution of over 500 free child sized masks to families in need.
2021 Campaign will be dependent on Covid conditions at that time.
BFU Beat the Heat Campaign
Summer of 2020 was a HOT one. Noticing a trend of households desperately trying to find relief from the heat, BFU launched this campaign. Targeted at helping households who had individuals who’s health was negatively affected by excessive heat and were low income.
