VANCOUVER — The Ledcor Group of Companies has announced it is donating $400,000 to local food banks in Canada and the U.S.
Through its charitable foundation, Ledcor is contributing funds to local food banks in the communities where its employees work and live: Vancouver, Langford, Kelowna, Kamloops, Kitimat, Edmonton, Calgary, Fort McMurray, Yellowknife, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Mississauga and nine municipalities in the U.S.
“COVID-19 has had many negative impacts in our communities, and we want to help families that have been hard hit economically,” said Dave Lede, Ledcor’s chairman and CEO. “Ledcor is donating $400,000 to over 20 local food banks to support emergency food supply. We want to help children that have lost access to school and community food programs, and families experiencing job loss.
“Today food banks are dealing with increased demands and food supply shortages. We want to ensure our communities are supported by helping to relieve hunger and food insecurity in this time of crisis.”
The firm’s Ledcor Cares program regularly supports food banks, noted the release.
