Vancouver, British Columbia -- September 27, 2013 -- Craftsman Collision, Save-On-Foods and PriceSmart foods recently teamed up with The Salvation Army to help ensure that no families go hungry this fall with a day long food drive.
Craftsman Collision pledged to match every item donated, which means that for every can donated by a participating customer, two cans of soup will make it onto a shelf at local Salvation Army Family Services units.
This year, Craftsman Collision was able to raise a record $33,863 in cash and food donations for the Salvation Army food bank, including matching donations from Craftsman. Since partnering with the Salvation Army in 2010, Craftsman Collision has raised over $146,000.
The Salvation Army has seen an increase in demand in every British Columbia community this year, as more families have come to rely on their services to put food on the table.
On top of that, many food banks throughout the province have had trouble stocking the shelves, with fewer businesses and individuals being able to part with food donations in these difficult economic times.
Craftsman Collision would like to thank all of the donors, staff and volunteers that made this event such a success.
