The Salvation Army and Craftsman Collision continue the fight on hunger.


Vancouver, British Columbia | September, 2015 – For the past 6 years, Craftsman Collision has hosted the Make A Dent Food Drive in partnership with Overwaitea Foods, benefiting The Salvation Army. Thus far, the campaign effort has raised an overwhelming $197,282 for The Salvation Army in British Columbia.

The Make a Dent Food Drive is held at 13 participating Save–On–Foods and PriceSmart locations and continues to grow across the province each year. The Make a Dent event encourages customers to donate food items or cash, supporting the work of The Salvation Army and both individuals and families in need. All donations stay in the community in which they were made.

Craftsman Collision generously pledges to match every item donated – for every can donated by a participating customer, two cans will make it onto a shelf at a local Salvation Army Community & Family Services operation. The day long food drive event has proven to be an anticipated and highly successful event year after year – raising $49,282 in dollars and in-kind donations in the 2015 Make a Dent campaign alone. 

“It was a rainy day on Saturday but that did not deter the efforts of Craftsman Collision and Overwaitea Foods in hosting the Make a Dent Food Drive. We are so grateful for the corporate partnership and the many employees and volunteers that have made a difference in the lives of children and families in our communities who will have food in a time of need. Thank you Craftsman Collision for helping The Salvation Army to give hope, dignity and opportunity throughout BC.”                                                                                                      -Patricia Cuff Divisional Secretary for Public Relations & Development | BC Division
