$10,000 Donated by Field Law to Calgary Food Bank at CBC’s “Blitz Day”

CALGARY - Field Law donated $10,000 to the Calgary Food Bank yesterday to help make the seasonal fund-raising event known as “Blitz Day” another huge success. 

Firm Managing Partner, Doreen Saunderson attended the fun-filled event at CBC’s new headquarters in northwest Calgary along with other guests that featured live music from local pop band the Heebee-jeebees and Christmas-sweater-wearing Food Bank workers and volunteers. 

Doreen presented the cheque, live on air, during the Homestretch, CBC’s evening commuter show, and talked about the Firm’s deep commitment to the community. 

“We do support a lot of other organizations in the community through the year, but the Food Bank does so much with so little,” Doreen said in her live interview with Jenny Howe of the CBC. “It is a volunteer driven organization and our firm has a cultural value of volunteerism that supports our communities and we know what great work they do serving such a broad, diverse group of people and there are so many people in Calgary that need it.”

This year's Blitz Day efforts helped push the total raised over the campaign well past the million-dollar goal, raising $1,100,000 for Calgary families in need and counting. The drive runs until noon, December 24.
