Working hand in hand to give back to local communities coast to coast
The annual Food Drive is sponsored by our stores by partnering with local charities of their choice to donate food and non-perishable items to those in need in their neighbourhood. Thank you to all of our Customers who have generously supported our Food drive.
We are committed to feeding as many individuals in our communities as we can, especially during these times of uncertainty. Everyone deserves to have a Thanksgiving meal on their table and food to eat. We believe running our annual food drive is one way to make a difference in our local communities,” says Clinton Wolff, President and CEO.
Our goal is to be your one-stop shop for all your Christmas toy needs by providing great value on brands at great prices. Our chain of stores, partner with a charity of choice every year and help collect toys for those in need.
With the help of our generous Customers, we collected $831,496 worth of toys for children in need this Christmas.
Every year, Customers help fill our sleigh with toys for kids in their community. It is a fun-filled day designed to give back to local communities. This year through Customer donations combined with Red Apple Stores' financial contibution, The Together We Care® Toy Drive raised a record-breaking total of $831,496 worth of toys and gifts, surpassing their goal of $650,000. The Company will donate $121,757 in cash to local charities, representing 10% of all in-store sales on Fill-a-Sleigh Day.
In January 2020, the local food bank in Fort Qu’Appelle ran very low on supplies. As the temperature dropped below -35 degrees, school busses stopped running, roads were blocked and people had to wait hours on the road to get to work.
Michelle Yeo (Store Manager, The Bargain! Shop) and her store team organized a fundraiser and asked Customers to generously donate a can of soup to help keep the community warm throughout winter.
Thanks to the support from the local community, The Bargain! Shop was able to donate 312 cans of soup to the food bank to help keep families warm during the cold days.
Our stores across Canada are committed to show their support by helping their communities during difficult times.
