Hungry Hungry Holiday Event more than Fulfilled APS Aspirations

Alberta Pensions Services Corporation employees compete to feed Edmonton

December 11, 2013

In August 2013, the staff at Alberta Pensions Services Corporation (APS) voted Edmonton's Food Bank as their charity of choice. In that short time, employees have met and exceeded their 2013 goals.

But it was the Hungry Hungry Holiday event that totally knocked the stockings off their targets. What started out as a project to fill 12 donation boxes with non-perishable food quickly turned into 30 boxes that held 6,094 items (equal to 2,922 kilograms). And they did it in one week!

"In my last 12 years, I've never seen a haul this big!" exclaimed Holiday Season Volunteer, Ken.

This is not the first (or last) employee-driven event APS has planned for EFB. Over the next two years, employees will continue to organize activities in true style: with heart and fierce competition!
