Kemptville Canadian Tire made another generous donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank last week. Throughout the months of July and August, the Canadian Tire store in Kemptville had a wooden play castle in their lobby and they were asking patrons to fill it with toys, household items, and pet food to support the Salvation Army. In total, they collected six large bags of pet food, and five boxes of toys and household items. At the end of August, the castle itself was raffled off to the highest bidder, raising $200 for the Food Bank.
Owner of Kemptville Canadian Tire, Frank Hoffman, has also kept up with in-house fundraising. Through various contests and games, his staff raised $1,180, as well as a donation of $500 in Canadian Tire gift cards to help support Salvation Army clients.
“The Salvation Army wishes to thank Frank Hoffman and the staff at Canadian Tire and its donors for their generosity and spirit of giving during these difficult times,” said Kemptville Salvation Army Director, Calvin Wong.
Frank and his staff contribute so much to their friends and neighbours, and are always to be relied upon to step up when any need arises. Fantastic community supporters.
