Finning Feeds The Food Bank

Over the holidays, the people of Finning Canada collected food and cash in support of local food banks across Western Canada.

“Our people have always been involved in supporting the communities where we live and work and this food drive was just one more way to give back,” said Tony de Sousa, vice president, Saskatchewan, Finning Canada. “To support their efforts, Finning matched the donation of the facility that collected the most per capita, dollar for dollar and a dollar per pound.”

The winning facility was Saskatoon collecting a whopping 1,068 pounds of food (approximately 22.2 lb. per employee) for their local food bank. The branch took top prize and received a matching donation from Finning of $1,068 for the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre.

In total, 15 facilities across our Western Canadian territory participated, with a grand total of 4,264 pounds of food and $2,368.45 collected.

Kudos to all the facilities who took part in the first annual Food Drive in support of your local food bank. Thank you for giving back and making a difference in your communities.
