Craftsman Collision, Save-On Foods and PriceSmart Foods join The Salvation Army in a one day food drive which aims to fill a car with food donations for those in need.  And the best news is that Crafstman Collision will match everything donated!



WHEN: Saturday, September 17th

WHAT: Craftsman Collision, Save-On Foods and PriceSmart Foods are teaming up 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 Salvation Army Food Bank shelves.

The Salvation Army has seen an increase in demand in every British Columbia community this year, as more families have come to rely on Salvation Army services to put food on the table.

 “We’re thrilled to have Craftsman Collision, Save-On Foods and PriceSmart Foods come on board to make sure our food bank’s shelves are well stocked for a busy Fall season,” says Major Brian Venables of The Salvation Army.

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, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, canned meat and fish, canned vegetables, hamburger helper, soup, rice, cereal, pasta, cookies, crackers, cake mix ( dry ), pasta sauce, tomato sauce, beans.

Please make sure to stop by and say Hello as we look to you for support!
