The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth Is Around the Corner and the Calgary Food Bank Is Ready to Put the Boots to Hunger™

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - June 27, 2016) - All around the city, companies and communities are organizing Stampede events and collecting food and funds for the Calgary Food Bank's annual Put the Boots to Hunger campaign.

So don't forget to bring a non-perishable food item or a cash donation for families and individuals in need.

Part of this initiative is the donation of Burnet Duckworth & Palmer LLP's (BD&P) chuckwagon tarp of GMC Rangeland Derby driver Gary Gorst. Each night a different business sponsors the Put the Boots to Hunger chuckwagon tarp and all funds raised support the Calgary Food Bank at a time when donations are typically slower.

Last year the Put the Boots to Hunger™ campaign raised over $340,000 in food and funds between tarp sponsorship and Stampede events. Calgarians are incredibly generous and to date have raised a total of $3.5 million in food and funds since the campaign started in 2008.
