Thank you to the following organizations for helping us enhance our Tools for School program in 2019.
This year, along with school supplies and backpacks, we were able to give gift cards supplied by Coldwell Banker Haida Realty, the Air Canada Foundation and Leduc Santa's Helpers to help families purchase other items (such as shoes or a coat) that we haven't previously been able to provide.
“Paradies Lagardère is excited to launch this partnership with Leduc & District Food Bank at the Edmonton International Airport,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO, Paradies Lagardère. “We believe that our community is not only coast to coast, but global as well. We’re always looking for new opportunities to make a positive and impactful difference in the lives of our employees, business partners and customers.”
Beginning June 17, travelers, as well as airline and airport employees, will have the opportunity to purchase and donate convenience foods, healthy snacks, HABA, beverages, and other items the customer may want to purchase for donation, which will then be distributed to the Leduc & District Food Bank.
Many sponsored helped make the purchase of this refrigerated truck possible. This truck will help the Leduc Food Bank and partners increase our ability to provide perishables in our programs.
The Leduc & District Food Bank was excited to receive a large donation from the provincial government early in March.
The food bank received $400,000 dollars from a Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) large grant. According to the Province of Alberta website, the CFEP, “Provides financial assistance to acquire, build, purchase, repair, renovate, upgrade or expand sports, recreational, cultural or other related public-use community facilities.”- The Leduc Rep, March 22, 2019

The annual Tools for School campaign which encourages the community to make contributions in support of the program runs from July through September. Donations can be made at any Staples location, Leduc Wal-Mart, Leduc Canadian Tire and at the Leduc and District Food Bank during this campaign time.

Where all individuals are empowered to achieve their full potential,
by having the opportunity to access basic social needs.
