Local businesses fundraise for Food Bank

Despite of all the buzz about graduation on Saturday, May 27, local organizations came together to fundraise for the Food Bank.

Despite of all the buzz about graduation on Saturday, May 27, local organizations Sobeys, Aspen Ford, and Anderson Motorsports and Promotions came together for a barbecue to fundraise for the local Food Bank.

“We were trying to give back to the community, and we figured with the way the economy is at the time, it would be a great chance to show our appreciation to the people of Stettler and try and help out people in need,” said Jason Anderson, one of the main organizers of the fundraiser and owner of Anderson Motorsports and Pormotions.

Anderson said that he approached a few sponsors and local businesses if they were interested in helping out, and they were more than willing, which brought them together.

“Stettler Sobeys was a huge help by donating all the hot dogs, pop and condiments; Aspen was there with some great vehicles on display; and we helped in barbecuing and serving food to the people that donated,” Anderson explained.

They were able to raise $320 for the Food Bank, and are planning for a similar event in July.

“I would just like to thank all the people that contributed to the Food Bank and helped us raise some money to give back,” Anderson said. “Our sponsors were a great help, and without their support we wouldn’t have been able to host this fundraiser.”
