To celebrate Canada’s 150th year, Sobeys Inc. brought Western Canadians together, all for an amazing cause. On Saturday, June 24th, customers visited their local Sobeys, Safeway or IGA store and made a $2 donation in exchange for a tasty ice cream treat. Here in Trail, 100 per cent of funds raised will help provide healthy meals and snacks for the Take a Hike (TAH) Youth at Risk Foundation. The Canada Screams for Ice Cream event also marked the launch of Sobeys Inc.’s Kids Paying-it-Forward program, which provided 150 kids from participating charities each with a $500 gift card to donate to a community group that has helped their family, friends or neighbours. The students from Take a Hike chose our local Salvation Army Food Bank as the recipient of the $500 gift card.
