Test Drives for the Veterans’ Food Bank
Come in and test drive any Titan during the month of November and Brasso will donate $20 to the Veterans’ food bank!
The 10th annual Veterans Food Bank campaign launched this week and officials said the number of those using the service has almost doubled since last year.
“It’s been a really tough year,” said manager Marie Blackburn.
“We’ve had double our hampers go out for most of the months throughout the year, and purchasing food over and above what we normally spend has increased dramatically.”
The Veterans’ Food Bank helps people as young as 25 and up to 98 years old.
“We have a lot of young guys coming in, and one of the problems when they get out of the service is finding a job —and if they did find a job, keeping that job. With the economy the way it is, there’s been so many layoffs,” Blackburn explained.
“When they get to that point, where they don’t have enough money to pay the rent or mortgage or put food on their table, that’s when our service becomes available to help them out.”
Brasso is sponsoring Titan test drives until November 30th and is also supporting the food drive by collecting non-perishable food donations. Call now to schedule a test drive or click here
Brasso Nissan Oil Challenge
Brasso hosted two fundraisers in May to support those affected by the fire in Fort McMurray. The fire destroyed over 2,000 structures and forced more than 80,000 residents to flee. It was the largest fire-based evacuation in the history of Alberta and “one of the largest, if not the largest, in Canada.”
Between the staff BBQ and Soak Yourself in Oil Challenge, we raised $2,160. Each donation was funneled through the Nissan portal on your behalf and all funds went to the Red Cross.
Because the donations were submitted individually, the Canadian government matched each donation. That means, the money we raised was worth twice as much! A huge thank you to everyone who donated.
Why have just ONE bucket of oil poured on you when Brasso staff can pour FOUR over your head?

This month Brasso staff will present the YWCA Sheriff King Home emergency shelter with a cheque for $6,030.
Brasso raises $6,030 for the YWCA Sheriff King Home emergency shelter. It rained, it hailed and the sun made a few brief appearances, but spirits weren’t dampened at our annual charity golf tournament.
The staff at Brasso and Stadium Nissan raised just over $6,000 and presented a cheque to the YWCA of Calgary on September 16, 2016. A huge thank you to our staff, suppliers and vendors for their generous contributions.
This is the third year Brass has donated to the Sheriff King Home. The shelter provides basic needs, as well as counselling, legal services and education support for women and children fleeing family violence. In 2014, YWCA Sheriff King Home sheltered 233 women and 257 children.
