Project collected food items.
YORKTON - Royal Auto Group’s ‘We Scare Hunger’ Food Drive turned out to be a huge success.  

This year, more than 650 kilograms of non-perishable food items were donated, and this was made possible with the support of the schools in Yorkton.  

‘We Scare Hunger’ is an annual food drive initiated by Ford of Canada.  

However, because of the pandemic, this program was discontinued last year.  

Dealer Principal Terry Ortynsky shared the idea of organizing this event once again, and Jane Jalmanzar from our marketing team reached out to the elementary schools in Yorkton.  

Five schools - St. Michael’s, St. Paul’s, St. Alphonsus, Yorkdale Central and Columbia School - immediately confirmed their participation.  

Collection boxes were placed at both Royal Ford and Royal Honda and the respective schools from Oct. 25 to 29.  

The Yorkton Nursery School Co-operative, upon learning about the food drive, joined in and brought several boxes of food donations to Royal Ford. 

“It was really heartwarming to see the kids, parents and teachers all participating. Everybody wanted to contribute to a worthwhile cause. The children really learned how to help so it was great,” said Ortynsky.  

The food donations were presented to The Soup Haven, on Tuesday, Nov. 9. 

Marilyn Dyck, Program Director of The Soup Haven said that the donations will be used for their lunch program that feeds over 250 school children a day. 

Royal Auto Group looks forward to supporting this event again next year.
