C95’S FEED IT TO BIEBER RAISES 5,432 POUNDS OF FOOD FOR THE SASKATOON FOOD BANK & LEARNING CENTRE
C95’s Feed it to Bieber promotion raised 5,432 pounds of food for the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre, demonstrating the generosity of the Saskatoon community and their willingness to give to those who truly need it.
C95 teamed up with three Your Independent Grocer locations in Saskatoon and filled a Saskatoon Transit bus with food for the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. For every bag of groceries donated, participants received an entry to win a Justin Bieber VIP Concert Experience including limousine transportation, pizza, and eight tickets to the Justin Bieber concert on Thursday, June 16th!
There were some outstanding contributions made throughout the day including, one hundred bottles of infant formula and a multitude of pre-made grocery bags filled with non-perishable food items from Your Independent Grocer. C95 listeners also demonstrated they will go above and beyond for the chance to see Justin Bieber, and individual donations of nearly forty bags of groceries were received from a number of participants.
Proceeds from today’s events will be used to support the 20,000 Saskatoon families that utilize the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre’s resources each month.
