In Memoriam

Roman Shukys 2021/12/20

Roman was born in Lithuania in 1937. He arrived safely in Canada with his parents and brothers and sisters in December 1948 and settled on Sioux Lookout, Ontario. Roman loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, and camping. He also loved animals, cats, dogs, and horses, and even rescued and saved two black bear cubs. He was so proud of his older brother who enlisted in the army and served in Korea. He achieved many things in life including getting his pilot's license. He returned numerous times to Lithuania to visit. His heart and home were open to many Lithuanian families who moved to Canada.

Messages from our Donors

I collect food for the veterans food bank of Calgary and have found all the volunteers there to be helpful and friendly. They work very hard to keep the huge facility in tip top shape. as my father fought in WWII I AM VERY GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOU DO.

My experience with this organization has been very positive. every time i drop off donations - they are eager to receive them. plus makes themselves available on my schedule, and 100 % volunteer ran is impressive to such great service.

Thank you for supporting the veterans of Calgary.

So great to see a group step so quick after the unfortunate demise of the original food bank.

Not sure why some would think only vets can or should help vets. Listening is a great way to learn what others needs are then help them find those resources. That said i’ve met several veterans volunteering here. I highly recommend this group.
