Port Metro Breakfast

Port Metro Vancouver Breakfast
Port Metro along with Mission Possible hold a breakfast some months after the Port Metro Gala where the cheque is presented. That breakfast was held yesterday, Monday September 30th at MP Community. MP Community members, various members of the MP staff as well as Port Metro CEO's and staff were on hand to eat breakfast together (served by Port Metro CEO's in lovely new Mission Possible aprons), mingle, and perform the cheque presentation.
People, Purpose Paycheque
Mission Possible CEO, Brian Postlewait, and MP Community members Loretta and Doug all spoke on behalf of Mission Possible. Brain pointed out that the funds donated to Mission Possible are highly leveraged as jobs are created, in turn more people earn a paycheque, and as evidenced by Loretta and Doug, purpose returns to people lives.
Here is the Port Metro Press release covering the event:
