Moonlight International Foundation reaches out to community in Truro, Nova Scotia.
Kindness without borders
On September 30, volunteers of Moonlight International Foundation set off with three vans of new winter coats, shoes, snow boots and socks for Colchester Food Bank in Truro, Nova Scotia. This six-hour round trip journey across the Confederation Bridge marked another milestone to the expansion of the Foundation’s “Warm Coat, Warm Heart” project.
Between 2012 and 2013, Moonlight International Foundation has donated a total of 2100 winter coats and 1026 pairs of snow boots to food banks across the Island. This year, the Foundation has prepared 1526 coats, 1638 pairs of boots and 2474 pairs of socks for families in need.
“It is another meaningful year for us. The Foundation would like to thank the Salvation Army, Food Banks, “Coat for Kids” programs and all the volunteers for their help during the distribution process. It’s a blessing to be able to work with people who share the same values to make our community a better place,” said Max Wang, President of Moonlight International Foundation.
“It’s not just about giving. It’s also about what we get in return. Many volunteers have delightfully shared with us the heart-warming feedback they received from their clients, an acknowledgement of the good deeds done.” said Max. “A volunteer told us she was in the mall one day and met a client who waved at her, smiled and said: “Thank you, you made me warm!”
