For the Food Banks of Saskatchewan
1-800-567-8008 to donate
In 2013, the Saskatchewan Food Banks helped feed over 22,500 people every month.
Children make up almost 44% of the people Saskatchewan Food Banks help feed.
Donations made to a Saskatchewan Food Bank before January 15, 2014 will be matched by PotashCorp, dollar for dollar, up to a maximum of $1 million dollars, making your donation even more important.
“Thank you for putting hope on the table this holiday season with your ongoing support of the Saskatchewan Food Banks.
As we prepare to gather for the holidays, we are reminded of special Christmas memories. Many of our most precious memories are those shared around the dinner table with family and friends.
Your gift is much more than food. It is the gift of the holiday spirit for those families we are fortunate to serve.
In addition, PotashCorp will be matching all financial donations up to $1 million dollars to food banks across Saskatchewan. Your donations will be doubled through your pledge.
We wish you and your families a warm and wonderful holiday season. For all you do, thank you from the Saskatchewan Food Banks.”
Thanks to the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon who presented Leisha Grebinski, host of CBC Radio One's Saskatoon Morning with a cheque for $2,000 in support of the Food Banks of Saskatchewan.
