Perminder Chohan Foundation Making The Holiday Season Better
Perminder Chohan Foundation Making The Holiday Season Better. As the holiday season comes to an end with the arrival of 2020, everyone should be able to find some food and warmth in the upcoming winter months of the new year. With this intention at heart, the Perminder Chohan Foundation organized multiple events in the days leading to Christmas – a food drive, a blanket drive, and a scrumptious lunch was organized for the less fortunate.
The food and blanket drives – were the second for the Foundation set up by B.C. philanthropist and businessman, Perminder Chohan. The community and Mr. Chohan’s friends came out to support charitable events. All canned and non-perishable items collected at the Food Drive held in November were donated to the Surrey Food Bank.
The Foundations Blanket Drive was held on December 15th and more than 250 new blankets were donated. All blankets will be further donated to shelters in the Lower Mainland. The Foundation also sponsored and served lunch at the First United Church in Vancouver on December 16th, over 200 plated lunches were served. Mr. Chohan, the Managing Director of Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network – BC set up the Foundation to provide adequate education, proper healthcare and everyday living needs for the people who need it the most.
