On Saturday, September 30th from 1-5pm, Cratfsman Collision and Save-on-Foods are teaming up with The Salvation Army to ensure that no families go hungry this fall. Together, with participating Save-on-foods locations, we’ll be hosting a day long food drive where customers will receive a shopping list of ideal non-perishable food items to shop for and donate.

Craftsman Collision is pledging to match every item donated; this means that for every can donated by a participating customer, two cans of soup will make it onto a shelf at your local Salvation Army Family Services to help those in need.

In 2016, Craftsman Collision’s ‘Make a Dent’ campaign raised over $30,000!

The Salvation Army is witnessing a surge in demand for food items this year in British Columbia. “Our food bank has been well used this summer,” said Sonia Withers, community ministry coordinator for The Salvation Army in Kelowna. “We started with floods, then wildfire, then an apartment fire and then more wildfire.”

To meet the demand of members in our community, it is important that we keep an adequate supply of food on hand at all times. We hope that by the end of the food drive, each location will have donated enough food to fill a Craftsman Collision courtesy car.

Shopping list of suggested items include: 

Canned Fruit

Meat (ham, tuna, salmon)

Macaroni & Cheese

Peanut Butter

Canned Vegetables

Rice

Hamburger Helper

Cereal

Diapers

Pasta

Toilet Paper

Instant Noodles

Canned Baked Beans

Pasta/Tomato Sauce

Beans
