Each year Redwood Plastics’ employees come together to collect donations for local food banks and shelters. This past holiday season, some of Redwood’s management made a promise to get a pie in each of their faces if the company rose over $5,000.
With donations from employees, suppliers, and customers the company rose $2,735 in cash donations and 3,097 food and toy donations, sending their CEO, Pat Curley, their Sales Manager, Don McMillan, and their Marketing Director, Angela Rodenburgh in front of the firing line for some sweet deep dish pie.
Many thanks to everyone for all their support! Each month, close to 850,000 Canadians are assisted by food banks, and 36.4% of those helped are children and youth. In the USA, Feeding America provides food assistance to an estimated 46.5 million people annually, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.
