Help put a dent in hunger.

On Saturday, September 19th from 1pm – 5pm, 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 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.

In 2014 Craftsman Collision’s ‘Make a Dent’ campaign raised over $23,000. 

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
Rice
Hamburger Helper
Cereal
Diapers
Pasta
Instant noodles
Canned baked beans
Pasta / Tomato Sauce
Beans
