KEEL MAGAZINE

At Eastport, we aim to be your keel, as on a boat – your point of balance, giving you directional stability. We help you get beyond thinking of money as the deep and unpredictable water you’re in. With our knowledge as your ballast, money can be the body that buoys you, propelling your good and purpose-rich life.

Eastport has 12th Annual Turkey Drive!

On Dec 17 we had our 12th annual turkey drive. Our biggest yet, since the need was so high this year. All made possible by the many many volunteers and donors. We were able to provide a turkey dinner to 700 families in the HRM, Bridgewater and surrounding areas.

 Eastport has 11th Annual Turkey Drive

Love reciprocated – Eastport has 11th Annual Turkey Drive!

Each year, our staff generously donate their time to organize the Annual Eastport Turkey Drive. It’s one of the ways we give back to the community, and this year, despite the added challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we raised $21,350.00 and bought 650 turkeys, sacks of potatoes, stuffing, bread, frozen vegetables, and dessert!

We are grateful for the following testimonials of our efforts, and to these organizations for allowing us to be part of their Christmas outreach.

Teen Challenge

Making Teen Challenges' Christmas

Took some pizza and some ice cream sandwiches and a Christmas surprise (a gaming station...shhh...that was Ryan’s idea and a brilliant one at that!) up to the guys at the Teen Challenge Center today with Paul MacNeil, Ryan MacNeil and Tim Sleigh. Although we didn’t have much time to spend with the guys I think it was one of my favourite trips out of the past ten years up.
