WINNIPEG, Man. – Maxim Truck and Trailer raised $21,000 from its 16th annual pancake breakfast Dec. 8 – talk about flippin’ a lot of flapjacks!
The money will go to the Christmas Cheer Board of Winnipeg, as will a full truckload of non-perishable food items collected during the charity event, which a surplus will go to the Siloam Mission.
Christmas Cheer provides assistance to families receiving provincial assistance, as well as the working poor.
“Everyone has the ability to give,” said Maxim president Doug Harvey. “Whether it’s time or money, it’s important to me that our company has a culture of giving back.”
Maxim employees, customers, suppliers and friends donated to the cause, making the event a success, which took place at the company’s head office in Winnipeg.
