TBSO & RFDA working together


TBSO & RFDA working together  #LSN_Arts

Thunder Bay, ON – October 23, 2016  (LSN) This October through December the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra will be collecting non-perishable food items and baby items in support of the Regional Food Distribution Association.


“When I saw that the RFDA was short on its expected targets for the winter, I knew that the TBSO could step up and offer support. As a non-profit organization, the TBSO recognizes how much time and work goes into programs for the community and how a small amount of extra support from other non-profits and businesses can make a big difference,” states Emily Carr, TBSO’s Marketing & Communications Manager.

Volker Kromm, the Executive Director of the RFDA, says, “We are so grateful for the efforts of the TBSO on our behalf. We can’t do what we do without the support of valuable partnerships, and the TBSO understands that organizations and community members need to work together to help improve the quality of life for everyone. Thanks so much to the TBSO for this opportunity to not just collect food, but also raise awareness of hunger in our city.”


As an incentive to donate, for every item donated through the TBSO, donors will receive a ballot to enter a draw for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the TBSO Special – Disco Inferno: A Disco Ball, on Saturday February 18th 2017 at 8PM at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium.
