CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnTrac, a logistics company in the Western United States, is excited to dedicate the month of November to the 11th Annual 102.5 KNIX Million Can Crusade canned food drive to benefit St. Vincent de Paul. For the eighth consecutive year since 2011, OnTrac contributes towards the goal of collecting one million cans of non-perishable food to feed hungry families during the holiday season.
At the kick-off event on Thursday, November 1, 2018, OnTrac joined the community to present a check for $2,000 towards the ultimate goal. Every dollar donated to the Million Can Crusade is equivalent to 10 additional cans in the St. Vincent de Paul's community food pantries and ultimately into food boxes that are delivered to hungry families. The greater Phoenix community can participate by donating until Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at Safeway and Albertson's stores. Please visit https://www.stvincentdepaul.net/millioncan for all locations and to make a monetary donation.
"In 2017, the KNIX Million Can Crusade broke records with over 2.3 million cans for St. Vincent de Paul, and OnTrac broke their own records with over 24,000 cans of food from a monetary donation and employee collected cans between our Phoenix facilities and Corporate Headquarters," says Laura Peterson, OnTrac vice president of marketing and public relations. "This year, we hope that OnTrac continues to break records while helping KNIX raise the bar yet again."
In addition to the donation to St. Vincent de Paul, OnTrac is a proud supporter of giving back to the communities where employees live and serve. Since 2014, OnTrac has given monetary donations equaling approximately $100,000 to a variety of charities within their eight-state footprint. Some of these great causes include the American Cancer Society, Arizona Humane Society, Container Recycling Institute, Habitat for Humanity, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Miracle Corners of the World, Red Cross Disaster Relief, Salvation Army, Toys For Tots, Treasure House Phoenix, Tyrann Mathieu Foundation, and the United Ostomy Association of American.
