AIM Recycling donates $10K to Soup Kitchen

Soup Kitchen manager Rom Sim says the demand for food assistance in the city has risen to levels he has never seen before

Amidst unprecedented demand for food supplies, the AIM Recycling team steps up to help those in need leading up to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and AIM Recycling Sault Ste Marie has announced they have been raising funds to help fight hunger in our community. The business has made a $10,000 donation to the neighbourhood Soup Kitchen because of the startling rise in food insecurity this year. 

According to Ron Sim, manager of the soup kitchen in Sault Ste Marie, for almost ten years, the demand for food assistance has risen to levels he has never seen before. 

AIM Recycling Sault Ste Marie’s Site Manager, Kelvin Nisbet, rallied his staff after learning about the Soup Kitchen's empty shelves. “We as a team and a part of this amazing community felt strongly that we needed to lend a helping hand as Thanksgiving approaches.” Nisbet continues by expressing pride in his team and the company for their quick response and ongoing support. 

The $10,000 donation will give the Soup Kitchen, which has been tirelessly serving the community for years, a lifeline. The kitchen will be able to serve more meals to those in need during the Thanksgiving season and beyond.  

“We believe in the importance of giving back to the community that has supported us and our development,” says Kelvin Nisbet. “This year has been exceptionally challenging for so many, and we felt compelled to do our part to help address the increased demand for food assistance. We hope this donation will make a meaningful impact.”
