MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Trailer Wizards has donated $25,000 to Food Banks Canada as part of Hunger Awareness Week. The week-long campaign, Give It Up For Hunger, will run from May 6 to May 10. During this time, Trailer Wizards’ employees will be spreading awareness of the issue of hunger across the country and the need for donations to food banks as well as supporting national programs. They will also be collecting non-perishable food items and money on behalf of Food Banks Canada.
“When we asked employees what they wanted to do to celebrate our 50 year, this was their idea,” said Doug Vanderspek, president of Trailer Wizards. “Employees wanted to give back locally to their communities and help others in need. Each branch will be working hard to raise awareness for Hunger Awareness Week and will graciously accept food bank donations from customers, partners and vendors on behalf of their local food bank.”
Trailer Wizards’ branches will also be organizing food drives to support local food banks during their 50 anniversary customer appreciation events this spring with the hopes of raising an additional $25,000 of food and money for a total of $50,000. Invited guests will be encouraged to bring canned or non-perishable food items. Any money or food that is raised locally will stay with a local food bank charity.
