“Every young person in Canada can be affected by bullying, depression and other complicated issues. This not only affects these children, but their families as well… Think of the many lives that have been positively impacted by the service Kids Help Phone provides. Our job as a good corporate citizen is not only to support them financially, but to also help proliferate their message to as many people as we can so kids and families are aware that such services exist.”
— Mitchell Martin, President, SYNNEX Canada
Thanks to SYNNEX and their remarkable employees, Kids Help Phone is increasing awareness of our service among youth and working passionately to reach them in innovative ways.

The Grocery Foundation
Night to Nurture Gala offers the grocery and food industry a unique opportunity to come together to make a significant, positive difference for kids across Canada. Funds raised through the Gala benefit organizations that nurture the whole child, such as Kids Help Phone and breakfast programs in schools across Canada.
Whether ensuring kids have healthy and balanced meals, or providing youth with a compassionate and understanding ear when they need to talk, the Gala has been making a difference in the lives of children for more than three decades.
The Gala evening features a cocktail reception where attendees can browse a silent auction, enjoy interactive entertainment and purchase raffle tickets for prizes. The highlight of the evening is the signature performance. The Gala is possible thanks to the support of numerous volunteers and generous sponsors.
We’d like to say thank you to The Grocery Foundation for their deep dedication to youth across Canada!
