Making a Dent ... in Hunger

Craftsman Collision Aims to Fill Courtesy Cars with Food Donations

On Saturday, September 19th from 1pm – 5pm, Craftsman Collision and Save-On-Foods at 101-1888 North Parallel Rd. in Abbotsford are teaming up with The Salvation Army to ensure that no family goes without access to nutritious food in the coming months. Together we are hosting a day long ‘food and fund drive’ and Craftsman Collision is pledging to match every item and every dollar donated. Double the impact! Imagine the difference that will make for our local Salvation Army and the people they serve.

The Salvation Army Meal Centre in Abbotsford has seen a drastic and very concerning increase in demand in our Meal Services this year as countless families struggling with sudden job loss, underemployment and poverty use our food services as a supplement to their limited income.

We are currently serving in excess of 11,000 meals monthly.

For maximum impact of your charitable donation, please plan to join us at Save On Foods this Saturday, September 19th at Parallel Marketplace from 1-5 pm!

Items in high demand are:

  • Your Donations of Funds
  • 100% Juice Boxes
  • Boost and Ensure Nutritional Beverages
  • Canned Meats
  • Nutrition or Protein Bars
  • Canned Baked Beans
  • Granola, Breakfast, Nutrigrain Bars
  • Canned Fruit
  • Boxed Rice Meals
  • Pasta Sauces
  • Hamburger Helper
  • Boxed Pasta Meals

Together we can make a difference!
