Donations for Fill the Tundra fundraiser to be amplified by local businesses

Your donation will go a long way to help the Soup Kitchen and St. Vincent Place with community partners matching online donations.

For the ninth consecutive year, Northside Toyota is fighting hunger in our community and kicking off their annual holiday fundraiser.

Northside Toyota is matching the first $1,000 donated online to the campaign to kick off the initiative, which collects non-perishable food donations and monetary contributions from the community.

The community’s online donations will be amplified with the support of several local businesses.

You can also support this initiative by helping them Fill the Tundra in-person this holiday season.

“Fill the Tundra is a powerful testament to the incredible strength and generosity of our community. In coming together to fill the bed of the Tundra with canned goods, we are not only stocking shelves but filling hearts with hope. This initiative is a reminder that when a community unites with a shared purpose, we can overcome any challenge. Let us transform the Tundra into a symbol of compassion, proving that together, we have the power to make a meaningful impact and nourish the spirit of giving that defines us as a community.” – Mario Palumbo, Dealer Principal

From now until Dec. 15, shoppers are encouraged to drop off donations at Pino’s Get Fresh, Rome’s Independent Grocer and Northside Toyota. Non-perishable food items can be placed in the back of the Fill the Tundra vehicles that will be at each of the three locations. Both St. Vincent Place and the Sault Ste. Marie Soup Kitchen are happy to receive any donation, however the items they often run out of include canned milk, granola bars, peanut butter and jam.

Shoppers at Pino’s and Rome’s can also make monetary donations at the checkout of either store. All donations will stay in our community, supporting both the Sault Ste. Marie Soup Kitchen and St. Vincent Place.
