The Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA) in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, received an unexpected $5,000 donation from Maxim Truck & Trailer to help provide food to food banks in Northwestern Ontario.
"I am thankful for the financial support given to us by Maxim Truck & Trailer," says Volker Kromm, Executive Director at RFDA. "As a charity with a broad regional footprint, that serves thousands of people struggling with food insecurity; we count our blessings each time a corporate donor gives selflessly." He goes on to say, "I also appreciate the truck support from Maxim. Keeping the wheels rolling in the distribution of healthy food and services is core to our mandate. Maxim is an important part of that."
"Maxim Truck & Trailer has a mandate to give back a portion of our profits to the communities in which we operate," says Darrin Poulin, General Manager of Maxim's Thunder Bay branch. "We have seen firsthand the work of distributing food to those in need that Volker Kromm and the RFDA in Northwestern Ontario are doing. We wanted to support them in the great work they do."
The RFDA currently operates with two medium-duty refrigerated trucks that distribute food to food banks in Northwestern Ontario. They rely on Maxim Truck & Trail to keep the trucks on the road making deliveries each day.
