North Vancouver, British Columbia — October 4, 2017 — Craftsman Collision has announced the results of its annual day-long food drive. In total, the company helped to raise $33,944.70 in donations at this year’s event.
“We are incredibly pleased with the results of the food drive and proud of all of our staff for volunteering their time for such a worthy cause,” says Janet Kones of Craftsman Collision. Kones served as the event’s organizer. “The customers of Save-On-Foods really stepped up with both food and cash donations which we are so appreciative of. It will go a long way with helping families in need in the communities where the food drives were held.”
Craftsman Collision runs the event annually, in partnership with Save-On-Foods and the Salvation Army. Craftsman Collision pledges to match every item donated, meaning that for every can donated, two cans make it onto the shelf at a local Salvation Army Family Services unit.
Since 2009, Craftsman Collision has raised nearly $285,000 in food and cash for The Salvation Army.
“Hunger is something we can all solve together,” says Rick Hatswell, COO of Craftsman Collision. “We mobilized food, people and positivity, which made our one day food drive a big success. I’m really proud of all our staff who volunteered to do their part of ensuring no families go hungry in our communities.”
