From May 20 to May 31, 2014, Koodo Mobile’s 159 locations across the country collected a total of 1,981 pounds of food that will be used to help people in need in local communities.

“The Salvation Army is grateful for partnerships such as Koodo,” says Major Les Marshall, Territorial Public Relations & Development Secretary. “It takes a lot of money to stock our food shelves. When groups such as Koodo support The Salvation Army, we are able to stretch our dollars even further, making a significant difference in the lives of those who are experiencing hardship.

“Many people don’t realize the extent of hunger’s reach in this country,” continues Marshall. “Each month, close to 850,000 Canadians are assisted by food banks, and 36 percent of those helped are children and youth.”
