VANCOUVER, BC – The Ledcor Group of Companies is supporting children and families this holiday season by donating $700,000 to local food banks in Canada and the U.S. across Ledcor office locations.
“Ledcor is donating $700,000 to more than 30 local food banks to support fresh and healthy food supply over the holiday season,” said Dave Lede, Chairman and CEO. “The holidays can be a particularly difficult and expensive time for many families. We are very fortunate to be in a position to help – we hope our contributions will help lessen the burden in our communities.”
