Santa Fe Wridgways Supports the Less Fortunate with Christmas Food Drive
At Wridgways, we pride ourselves on making it easy for our customers, and this year we are joining forces with Foodbank to make life a little easier for those who are doing it tough. We are running a food drive all across the country throughout the festive season, collecting food for the less fortunate.
To help generate as much support for this great cause as possible, we are encouraging our staff AND our customers to make the effort to donate non-perishable foods to our food drive.
We will have collection boxes in all of our branches, and will provide special boxes to any customers who may wish to take up this opportunity to do something special, at this special time of year.
How can I help?
- Ask your Sales Consultant to provide you with a special collection box which you can fill with any non-perishable food products
- Visit a Wridgways Branch and drop off any items you wish to donate in our collection boxes
