One More Jailed

Craftsman Collision across BC chip in to reduce hunger

Craftsman Collision set up shop at Save oon Foods September 30 and collected 1,261 items from residents who also donated $110.


n Saturday, September, 30th, from 1pm – 5pm, Craftsman Collision and Save-On-Foods teamed up with The Salvation Army to ensure that no families go hungry this fall by hosting a day long food drive. 


Craftsman Collision is pledging to match every item donated, which means that for every can donated by a participating customer, two cans of soup will make it onto a shelf at local Salvation Army Family Services units which serve individuals and families in need of assistance.


Recent reports suggest that 1 in 10 people in BC live in poverty and food insecurity impacts more than half a million British Columbians. The sad reality is that 1 in 5 BC kid’s lives in poverty.

Your donation of nutritious food items help The Salvation Army provide practical assistance and support to individuals and families and enables them to divert much needed funds to housing, heat and hydro, and other life essentials.

You can be a ‘Hero for Hope’ to a family struggling in poverty by partnering with us to provide much needed non-perishable items for your local Salvation Army food bank and meal centre.

In 2016 Craftsman Collision’s ‘Make a Dent’ campaign raised over $30,000. 

Upon entering participating locations, customers will receive a shopping list of ideal non-perishable food items to shop for and donate. The hope is that when the drive is complete, each location will have donated enough food to fill a Craftsman Collision courtesy car.

Shopping list of suggested items were:

Canned Fruit

Meat (ham, tuna, salmon)
Macaroni & Cheese
Peanut Butter
Canned vegetables
Hamburger Helper


Toilet Paper
Instant noodles
Canned baked beans
Pasta / Tomato Sauce

Since 1977, that first shop on the corner of 6th and Yukon in Vancouver has expanded to a network of 40 Craftsman Collision locations in BC, Alberta, California and China – more than any other independent, family owned Canadian collision repair chain.
