Red River Mutual Food Drive Collects Over 2,300 Items
On April 11, 2014, Red River Mutual staff held a companywide food drive in support of the Rhineland and Area Food Bank and Winnipeg Harvest.
Staff members competed in teams to see who could collect the highest number of non-perishable food items for local food banks. All teams were encouraged to decorate office spaces with a sports theme and wear sports themed clothing. The decorations were judged by a number of employees from Country 88.9, the Red River Echo, and the Rhineland and Area Food Bank.
Cathy Dyck, a Red River Mutual Social Committee member, said, “All of our teams here at Red River Mutual have been collecting food all week and they are all competing against each other to see who can bring the most.” Social Committee member, Shawn Parago, shared “It’s been a lot of fun and to see everyone come out and challenge each other for such a worthy cause – it’s great!”
A total of 2,313 items were donated to the Rhineland and Area Food Bank and Winnipeg Harvest.
