Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation to donate $110,000 to Alberta food banks
EDMONTON – The Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation will donate a total of $110,000 to 11 food banks across the province to help the organizations relieve hunger and provide necessities to Albertans in need.
“While our province is recovering from one of the worst economic recessions seen in a generation, there are still many individual Albertans and families struggling to make ends meet,” said Building Trades of Alberta Executive Director, Terry Parker. “Food banks help close that gap.”
“The Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation is proud to support the important work Alberta food banks do. From providing food to personal products, food banks ensure folks receive what they need to make their lives better. We’re pleased to be able to help them do that.
“I encourage those who can, to support their local food bank in any capacity they are able to now, and throughout the year,” said Parker.
The Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation began in 1991 and has raised over $7.6 million for more than 70 non-profit organizations across Alberta.
The Building Trades of Alberta advocates for 16 Alberta trade unions whose 75,000 members work in the residential, commercial and industrial construction, maintenance and fabrication industries.
