Community Caring : Ontario

Great Canadian Bass Tournament

Bass Each July, the Town of Fort Frances goes a little fishy with the Great Canadian Bass Tournament, one of Canada's largest professional tournaments and its greatest fishing party. The event brings the community together and Safeway is front and centre, hosting the snack area and raising thousands of dollars for a local charity. The event depends on more than 60 Safeway volunteers and a great deal of organization, but the community depends on us - and we're proud to be there!

Safeway Cares On-line Auction

because we care

As part of the Safeway Because We Care fund raising campaign, the employees of Canada Safeway in Kenora, Ontario annually host an on-line auction in support of the local Hospital Foundation. The store hopes to purchase a CT Scanner for the Lake of the Woods Hospital. Safeway stores in Kenora, Fort Frances and Dryden have raised over $450,000 since 1998 in support of local charitable causes.

Thunder Bay

Thunder Bay As the largest single contributor to food banks in Western Canada, Safeway is proud to be a significant supporter of Thunder Bay's Shelter House. Supporting this organization with cash and food donations, we are helping to make a difference in this community.
