Perminder Chohan's Food and Blanket Drive

09 Jan, 2019

As the holiday season comes to an end with the arrival of 2019, 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 two charity drives in Surrey, B.C. in the days leading to Christmas - a food drive and a blanket drive. 


Both -  the food and blanket drives - were the very first for the Foundation set up by B.C. philanthropist and businessman, Perminder Chohan, earlier this year. The community and Mr. Chohan’s friends came out to support the charitable events. 


The Foundations Blanket Drive was held on December 23rd and over three hundred blankets were collected. The blankets were  later delivered to three shelters - Surrey Urban Mission, Hyland House and the Lookout Society in Surrey.


Thousands of dollars were also raised by the Food Drive held on November 25th and all proceeds were donated to the Surrey Food Bank.


Mr. Chohan, the Managing Director of Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network - Richmond South, set up the Foundation to provide adequate education, proper healthcare and everyday living needs for the people who need it the most.
