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.
The Corporate Challenge is a 12-hour radiothon, in partnership with Country 93.3 and Rock 97.9. This year the Corporate Challenge will be held on November 28, 2019 from 7am to 7pm. 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. This year the Food Drive will be from November 29 (11am to 9pm), November 30 (9am to 9pm) and December 1 (9am to 7pm). Volunteers will be stationed alongside H. Wilsons Trucks at all our local grocery stores, Walmart and Anzac Grocery. They will be collecting food and monetary donations.
Help us reach our goal of $300,000 and 80,000lbs during our biggest event of the year! All donations raised go towards the programs and services necessary to ensure food security for all citizens in the Region of Wood Buffalo
