Craftsman Collision food drive raises $17,000
North Vancouver, BC – While the holiday season is a ways away, Craftsman employees have not lost the giving spirit. Craftsman staff recently took to the community to raise food and money for your local Salvation Army Community and Family Services through the annual Make a Dent Food Drive hosted at Save-On-Foods locations throughout British Columbia.
Although the weather did not cooperate, it didn’t dampen the spirits of Craftsman employees. Through the efforts of Craftsman Collision employees on a rainy Saturday, they managed to raise $16,913 worth of food and cash. President/Owner of Craftsman Collision, Bill Hatswell will be matching all donations. The Salvation Army will be receiving a donation total of $33, 826. The food and monies raised will help support local meal and food hamper programs for the Salvation Army.
“We are ecstatic that we hit our goal of a quarter of a million dollars”, says Stacey Cook, Marketing Manager. “Since 2009, Craftsman Collision has raised $251,102.44 in food and cash for the Salvation Army. Giving back has always been an integral part of the culture at Craftsman Collision. Our fundraiser is a chance for us to come together as a company and participate in fun, team building activities, while supporting a very worthy cause.”
A special thanks goes out to Save-On-Foods for their ongoing community partnership and to all the volunteers that helped make the day such a success.
