Red Sun Farms Exceeds 2018 Donations to Make-A-Wish Foundation
CANADA - The Great White North is known for many things, but in this industry, we look to it as a beacon for greenhouse growing operations. Not only are farmers growing premium vegetables, but they are promoting healthy lifestyles for everyone in the country. Red Sun Farms took this a step further when it introduced a program to encourage healthy living in the workplace. By providing produce boxes for a donation of five dollars a box, the company delivers fresh, quality vegetables straight from the Red Sun Farms’ greenhouses.
“I am so incredibly proud of our team,” said Jim DiMenna, President. “The Make-A-Wish foundation is such a great organization, and our team really hit it out of the park this time.
As an added incentive, all money collected from the boxes is donated to the Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario chapter, granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience. According to a press release, when DiMenna heard about the team’s plan, he decided to up the ante and match every dollar raised in support of the initiative.
In 2017 the team donated $5,720, which grew to $9,770 in 2018. This year it grew even more, hitting a record of $10,890. With the growth of donations year-over-year, the bar is set high for 2020, and the Red Sun Farms team is more than willing to take on the challenge.
