Harvest Manitoba is pleased to announce a $100,000 donation by Maxim Truck & Trailer that was used to add a much needed refrigerated delivery truck to the food bank’s fleet. The truck will be used to pick up and drop off perishable food to Harvest Manitoba’s Food Network of 350 food banks and agencies in Manitoba.
“We are grateful to Maxim Truck & Trailer for stepping up with this donation at this critical time,” says Keren Taylor Hughes, Harvest CEO. “COVID-19 has sent more Manitobans to food banks than to hospitals. This refrigerated truck will help us deliver food to those in need not only in Winnipeg but across Manitoba.”
Doug Harvey, CEO of Maxim Truck & Trailer says, “Maxim’s core values include a commitment to give back to our community – particularly to those struggling with the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing. For that reason, the donation to Harvest Manitoba in this time of heightened need just made a lot of sense.”
Operating in 11 cities across Canada, Maxim Truck & Trailer is like every other business today and faces significant challenges navigating the current business environment because of COVID. This donation confirms the company’s unwavering resolve to give back a portion of revenue each year to charities across Canada in the cities where they operate.
The new Harvest Manitoba delivery truck was also branded by Maxim with Harvest Manitoba’s new name and logo that was recently announced.
