Annual Syncrude Food Drive

& Corporate Challenge

Home Events Syncrude Food Drive

Every year, near the end of November, we hold our Annual Syncrude Food Drive. It is a four day event with two components: The Corporate Challenge, and the Syncrude Food Drive.

This year we are celebrating something big. It is the 25th Anniversary of this event—and we want to make this the biggest year yet with your help!

The Corporate Challenge is a 12 hour radiothon, this year on November 30, 2017 beginning at 7am, in partnership with Country 93.3 and Rock 97.9. Syncrude starts off the challenge by announcing its annual corporate donation live on air. From there, they challenge other corporations and community members to pledge and challenge. Everyone is welcome to call in and pledge: Corporations, service groups, clubs, and individual donors.

Next, there is a three day Syncrude Food Drive, on Friday, December 1 to Sunday, December 3, 2017. Volunteers will be stationed alongside H. Wilsons Tucks at all of our local grocery stores, Walmart and Anzac Grocery. They will be collecting food and monetary donations.

THIS YEAR We are challenging all businesses, organizations, service clubs, schools and social groups to collect pledges in increments of “25” ($2.50, $25, $250, etc.) from either their employees, clients, customers, members or friends and families for 25 days leading up to our 25th Anniversary of the Syncrude Food Drive and Corporate Challenge! Make it fun by turning it into an internal competition between departments, or a competition between businesses! It is totally up to you! The challenge is completely customizable on your end to what suits your business/organization the best.
