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.
33rd Annual Food Drive
October 19, 2019
Access Communications is a proud sponsor of the Annual Regina Food Bank Drive that takes place in Regina every October. As part of the food drive, Access volunteers, along with the Regina Guides and Scouts, head out and pick up food that has been left out on doorsteps across the city.
Watch for your Food Drive donation bag arriving in the QC Post Newspaper. Fill the bag throughout the week with non-perishable food items, and leave it on your doorstep for pick up Saturday, October 19th. Local youth, community groups and individuals will be going door to door to collect these items starting at 9:30am Saturday morning until 2:00pm.
If your donation is not picked up after 2:30pm on Saturday, you can also call 306-205-FOOD, and Access Communications volunteers will make arrangements to have it picked up before 5:00pm. You can also drop off your donation bag between Oct 1-20th at Access Communications at 2250 Park Street Monday to Friday 9am - 6pm and Saturday 10am - 5pm.
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.
Access Communications support of the Salvation Army includes an annual fundraising luncheon hosted by our co-operative's staff.
Each year, Access staff in Regina organize and serve a traditional Christmas dinner to our friends in the community. Donations made at the event are topped up with a contribution from the Access Communications Employee Association and all proceeds are given to our special guests from the Salvation Army in Regina. The dinner has become a favourite event for many in the business community — and a great way to share some holiday fellowship with other leaders in the community, while supporting those in need.
