GUELPH, Ont. — For the second year in a row, Keltic Transportation has teamed up with Hamilton Tiger-Cat Marwan Hage and not-for-profit FTC Canada to provide food and hygiene boxes to Montreal families in need.
The Moncton-based transportation company donated its services to bring 900 boxes from FTC’s Guelph warehouse to the Sun Youth Organization’s downtown Montreal warehouse, where they were distributed to 450 families last week.
Marwan Hage, a Montreal resident and 2009 CFL All-Star and Tom Pate Award winner, was on hand to distribute the boxes personally to the families as part of his Hage’s Heroes program.
“Keltic’s success is based on teamwork in a family atmosphere,” says Shane Esson, general manager at Keltic. “We are extremely proud to once again partner with FTC Canada and Marwan Hage to help with their transportation needs of bringing much needed food and supplies to the families in Montreal.”
Last May, the three groups partnered together and distributed food boxes to Montreal families as part of FTC Canada’s food box distribution program, which in 2009 distributed more than 2,800 boxes to families in Hamilton, Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg.
