"can do" food drive 2014

One of CB2’s core values is to work with local organizations that make a difference in our neighborhoods—specifically nonprofit groups that provide food and shelter to those in need.

Our annual “can do” food drive continues to be a tradition that warms our hearts—and as food banks have been especially busy these past few years, they appreciate donations more than ever.

September 5th-14th, all in-store customers are welcome to bring in 5 non-perishable items and receive a 15% discount on any purchase. For details, please see the fine print* below.

Watch all the collections grow during the drive and remember that food stuffs collected will go directly to the food banks, listed below, which are local partners with our 13 CB2 stores in North America.
