Although the weather outside was frigid, it was nice and warm inside the downtown Edmonton Hudsons location yesterday for the “Great Canadian Food Drive.” Brad Devarennes, Retail Sales Manager for Alberta, spearheaded this event for the second straight year in partnership with the Bear Radio Station and Hudsons Canadian Taphouse. From 11am-7pm, both food and cash donations for Edmonton’s Food Bank were accepted. As an added bonus, Tom Gilbert from the Edmonton Oilers and Ron McClendon from the Edmonton Eskimos, signed autographs for patrons.
Including Molson’s donation of $5,000, almost $7,000 was raised during the day – and an amazing 3,560 pounds of food was donated by generous Edmontonians. Truly, this event made a real difference for those in need.
Congratulations to the Molson Team and our partners for Playing Their Part!!
