Save on Foods donates $1,500 to the Salvation Army

Total raised was part of the store’s #shareitforward program

On June 22, Prince Rupert’s Save on Foods donated $1,500 to the Prince Rupert Food Bank Salvation Army. The donation was made possible as a result of the store’s #shareitforward program where on June 15, 16 and 17, Save on Foods donted 25 per cent net proceeds to the local food bank for every customer who bought a Western Family item. All Save on Foods stores raised a total of $250,000 for local food banks.
