WINNIPEG, Man. — Freightliner Manitoba employees are helping spread some Christmas cheer by donating cash and food to some local families.
The company hosted a barbecue for staff and customers each payday this summer, with proceeds being raised for needy families. About $750 was raised as a result of their efforts.
In addition, Freightliner Manitoba has been collecting non-perishable food items as well. The company has assembled four food hampers each of which includes a turkey provided by Westroc Colony.
"Christmas is a time for giving and we want to make Christmas a little bit brighter for four families who live in the area of our workplace," says sales manager Ken Talbot.
"You should see the smiles on the families’ faces when we deliver each hamper. It’s hard to describe but definitely makes the effort worthwhile," adds deliverer, Mike Palmer.
