Jae-Lynn’s 8th Birthday Food Drive


Every birthday Jae-Lynn has had has been marked with a donation to Winnipeg Harvest and this year was no exception with 145 pounds of food collected.

“I like caring for others,” Jae-Lynn told us, saying she hopes to continue to raise donations for Winnipeg Harvest in the years to come.

Instead of gifts for her, Jae-Lynn encourages her friends and family to give food or cash donations to help feed those who need a hand. She’s also no stranger around the Winnipeg Harvest warehouse, having volunteered a number of times in between fundraising campaigns.

“I liked sorting potatoes the most,” she said. “We also put flour in bags and some other stuff, but I had the most fun sorting potatoes.”

When asked if she had a goal that she’d like to hit by the time she turns 18, her answer was very encouraging—”a trillion pounds of food!”
