Red Apple Stores and The Bargain! Shop’s 2021 Together We Care® Food Drive Raises More Than $160,000 for Local Communities

Mississauga, ON, October 12, 2021 – Red Apple Stores and The Bargain! Shop have been running the Together We Care® Food Drive for six years, donating needed goods and food items to their local communities.

This year, through the generous support of our Customers, Red Apple Stores and The Bargain! Shop will donate much-needed household items, baby care, fresh goods and more valued at $160,664 to local charities in the communities we serve across the country. This surpassed our goal and the $150,973 we raised last year!

“Our stores are committed to supporting as many individuals as possible through the annual Together We Care® Food Drive in September–October and Toy Drive in November, Fill-a-Sleigh Day in December, as well as other activities throughout the year,” says Clinton Wolff, President, and Chief Executive Officer.

“We are deeply grateful and thankful for our Customers, who have once again come together to support their local community members—an especially important initiative given the ongoing uncertainty so many are facing as we approach the holiday season. Hand in hand, we can all make a difference in the lives of our community members and friends, and we thank all of our Customers for their continued support.”
