$36,000 so Far for Red Cross

20 cents at a time really adds up!

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2010) - Peak of the Market announced two weeks ago that for every bag of Peak of the Market vegetables purchased in Manitoba until February 28th, Peak of the Market Growers would donate 20 cents to the Canadian Red Cross to help the people of Haiti. 

Their announced target was to raise $40,000 for the Canadian Red Cross - 20 cents at a time. With a week left - the total already stands at $36,000.

"We're thrilled to be at $36,000 and have now increased our goal to $50,000 which is possible with this week left, stated Larry McIntosh, President and CEO of Peak of the Market. "Have an extra meal of Manitoba grown veggies and know you are helping someone in Haiti."

Manitobans can help by buying a bag of Peak of the Market brand potatoes, carrots, onions or parsnips. This will be Peak of the Market's single largest cash donation in their 68 year history.

"I am amazed at how Manitobans are always willing to help their neighbours in Manitoba, in Canada and around the world, Larry McIntosh said. "It makes me proud to say I'm from Manitoba."
