One CAN Make a Difference convoy delivers food goods to soup kitchen, food bank

Essar Steel Algoma employees banded together to help stock local food banks June 30. An 11-vehicle strong convoy laden with nonperishable goods made its way to the Soup Kitchen and St.Vincent Place in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to make an important delivery.

The employees at Essar Steel Algoma have been quietly supporting a community cause. The message was clear and concise—one CAN make a difference. Some brought a few cans, some brought a few bags; one noteworthy department of just 20 employees raised money to buy groceries—$740 worth of boxes upon boxes of non-perishable goods.

Essar Steel Algoma’s call to help was carried out under the leadership of Department Champions—employee volunteers who came forward to raise awareness and encourage participation within their respective departments. The “champions” joined the convoy and delivered the food goods to the agencies that will ensure it gets to those who need it most.

One champion simply remarked, “It feels good to do good.”
