Raising funds & promoting great causes

At Access Communications, giving back to the communities we serve is a full-time job. We’re proud to support over 1,500 community groups. We support these groups by volunteering our time, by providing sponsorships and by promoting their events and programs on AccessNow TV. But we also take things a step further and champion important causes through our fundraising events.

Whether it’s a telethon to save our furry friends or hosting 5,000 car enthusiasts to support the local food bank, we believe in doing our part to raise not only money but awareness. Our charitable partners do important work in the community and as a co-operative, it’s our responsibility to lend a hand.

Salvation Army Toy Drive

December 7 to 11, 2020

The holidays are the season for giving, and our friends at the Salvation Army need our help to support local families in need. Through their Christmas Assistance program, the Salvation Army delivers food hampers, toys and clothing to our community. And this year, demand for this program has grown.

To support these efforts, Access Communications is hosting a Toy Drive from December 7-11. You can drop off any new, unwrapped toys in the specially-marked bin at our 2250 Park Street location (during regular business hours). Toys for all ages are welcome, with a special emphasis on ages 9-12 as shortages are expected.

Together, we can make a difference for those less fortunate in our community.

Regina Food Drive

Drive Through Food Drive
October 10, 2020

Every October, Access Communications lends its support to the Regina Food Bank for its annual Food Drive. 

This year, we’ve seen an unprecedented increase in demand for the services of our food banks. The Regina Food Bank needs to feed over 13,000 people each month, while having key fundraising initiatives like the Labour Day Show N Shine and Annual Food Drive cancelled due to COVID-19.
Regina Food Bank estimates that they need to secure over 1 million meals for Regina residents to last until the spring. And they need all our help to do it.

Regina Food Bank has launched the Mosaic Million Meal Challenge for October, and Access Communications is answering the call for support as a Corporate Champion. Access Communications staff will be on hand for the Drive Through Food Drive – a new physically-distanced approach to food donation drop-offs.

Date: Saturday, October 10th 
Time: 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location: Regina Exhibition Place outside the Brandt Centre. 

If you have a food or monetary donation, please consider stopping by. Donations can be made while maintaining physical distance, and there will be some fun giveaways for donors as well. The Regina Food Bank is asking for these most needed items:

  • Pasta
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Instant Noodles
  • Canned Soup
  • Canned Protein
  • Canned Fruits and Vegetables

United Way Telethons

Access Communications is a major supporter of the United Way across Saskatchewan. Through AccessNow TV United Way telethons in Weyburn and Estevan, Access helps to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in support each year. The two annual events have flourished with the help of the community for over 30 years.

Access Communications also supports the annual United Circle of Care Campaign. Throughout the month of October, Access staff raised money through internal events and staff directed donations.
