Our team getting ready to install the YORK central air conditioner that we have donated to the Lanark County Food Bank.
Karin (Manager of the Lanark County Food Bank) contacted us the first of April inquiring about obtaining air conditioning for the building they recently moved into. There were some existing window air conditioners, however they are either not working or in rough shape.
We met with Karen and determined that a central air conditioner would work in this application, and would therefore replace the window units. As a result we have donated a YORK air conditioner complete with installation labour and materials. This is being installed today.
During the meeting with Karin she mentioned that she frequently has requirements for a van or truck to pick up from grocery stores when she makes large volume purchases and/or receives donations, or schools that have conducted collections in support of the food bank. In the past it has been difficult for her to collect these items because she would have to find a suitable vehicle to borrow. Moving forward we will be doing these pick ups for her with our fleet of vans and trucks.
Another example of how our team continues to give back to the communities that we serve, and the residents that support us.
We wish to remind everyone that the Food Bank is in need of donations to fill their shelves.
