Past Events

One-of-a-Kind Bag Sales
Grateful thanks to Maureen Smith, a local Rotarian, and her sister, Christine, for the One-of-a-Kind Bag Sales over the last several years.

Maureen and Christine crafted these beautiful bags and donated ALL proceeds to F4K Guelph raising over $25,000 to help feed hungry kids.

Sadly, Maureen died in January, 2023. She requested donations in lieu of flowers and Food4Kids Guelph has received an additional $33,000 in her memory. We believe that she would be happy that she is still feeding hungry kids.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help Christine continue making these bags in memory of Maureen.

Maureen passed away peacefully at home with her family at her side, on January 07, 2023, in her 68th year.


Over the past few years, Maureen devoted her skills and time to sew beautiful bags made from donated samples of upholstery fabric and sold these one-of-a-kind masterpieces to raise significant funds for the Food4Kids Guelph program.  


Donations to Food4Kids Guelph in memory of Maureen may be made HERE.
