WINNIPEG, Man. — Maxim Truck and Trailer’s annual charity pancake breakfast has raised $8,265 for the Christmas Cheer Board of Winnipeg.
Along with the cash donation, the event – now in its 12th year – also collected a full van of non-perishable food items for the Cheer Board.
The event took place at Maxim’s head office in Winnipeg on Dec. 6 and attracted more than 450 guests. In addition to pancakes, guests were treated to a medley of Christmas carols performed by a Maxim choir.
“The pancake breakfast makes me very proud,” says Maxim president Doug Harvey. “So many great Maxim employees, customers, suppliers and friends helping to make Christmas special for those less fortunate.”
The Christmas Cheer Board provides assistance to families receiving provincial assistance as well as many of the working poor.
