KTFB Welcomes Camilla Brown as Treasurer

Apr 15, 2021

The board of King Township Food Bank is pleased to announce that Camilla Brown has assumed the position of Treasurer.

As a chartered accountant with a CPA, CA designation, Brown brings to the Food Bank extensive experience in public and corporate accounting, including audits and income tax returns. Her skills in financial management will serve the KTFB well in this volunteer role.

“At a minimum, I am happy to apply my accounting and financial advisory skills to the role of Treasurer and help support the Food Bank’s financial affairs,” said Brown. “As a new board member, I bring my enthusiasm and energy to achieve the Food Bank’s goals and perhaps add another perspective in the delivery of our services.”

Brown believes that food banks fi ll a void in the social fabric of society and that any experience with such an organization is built along the concept of “neighbours helping neighbours.” As a resident of King Township for eight years (from Vaughan), Brown is committed to serving her community through her volunteer efforts.

“I couldn’t be happier than the day that Camilla contacted us to offer her services,” said KTFB President Carol Ann Trabert. “Treasury is tricky and having a career accountant volunteer their services is not much short of a miracle.”

Working closely with other board members, Brown will be responsible for processing receipts and disbursements; preparing and monitoring annual budgets; and providing financial statements and other fiscal reports to Board meetings to help the Board make informed decisions.

“As the KTFB is a charitable organization run entirely by unpaid volunteers, it is humbling to know that our community works so hard in different ways to reduce hunger for those who live in our neighbourhood,” added Brown. “Some people provide financial assistance and others volunteer their time and skills to keep the engines rolling. It is heartwarming to see so much support from everyone who makes the KTFB a part of their social enterprise.”

Given the rise in registrations, the challenges of the current pandemic and the fact that the KTFB does not receive any government grants, the community continues to show an unprecedented level of support for the Food Bank.

“I’m looking forward to volunteering with the board to meet the increase in demand within our community in innovative ways,” says Brown. Beyond her volunteer commitment to the KTFB, Brown is currently developing financial literacy educational material for young adults in the workforce as part of her independent practice.
