Since 2009, Craftsman Collision has hosted the Make a Dent food drive in partnership with Save-On-Foods and PriceSmart, benefiting the Salvation Army. Thus far, the campaign effort has raised an overwhelming $148,000 for the Salvation Army in British Columbia.
In 2013 Craftsman Collision’s ‘Make a Dent’ campaign raised over $33,000. This year, Craftsman’s goal is to raise over $40,000.
On Saturday, September 13th from 1:00-5:00pm Craftsman Collision, Save-On-Foods and PriceSmart foods are teaming up again with The Salvation Army to ensure that no families go hungry this Fall, by hosting a day long food drive.
Craftsman Collision is pledging 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 which work to serve the communities to which they’re a part of.
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.
Upon entering participating locations, customers will receive a shopping list of ideal non-perishable food items to shop for and donate. The hope is that when the drive is complete, each location will have donated enough food to fill a Craftsman Collision courtesy car.
Shopping list of suggested items of need include:
- Canned Fruit
- Canned meat (ham,tuna,salmon)
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Peanut Butter
- Canned vegetables
- Hamburger Helper
- Instant noodles
- Canned baked bean
- Pasta/Tomato Sauce
