Ritchie Bros., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, recently made a donation to food banks around the world to help with the economic impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The company made $187,500 in donations to 52 different food banks around the world, including organizations in the U.S., Canada, Australia, India, Japan, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, UK and the Netherlands.

“Right now there are tens of millions of men and women out of work, worried about how they are going to continue putting food on the table for themselves and their families — we are just trying to do our small part to help,” said Ann Fandozzi, CEO, Ritchie Bros. “We hope our donations will inspire our employees and customers to give back to their community — with their time and/or their money. Please join us in supporting food banks around the world.”

One of the company’s larger donations was a $25,000 grant made to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank in British Columbia, Canada, where the Ritchie Bros. head office is located and where several hundred of its employees live.

“We are incredibly grateful to Ritchie Bros. for gifting $25,000 to the Greater Vancouver Foodbank during the current COVID-19 crisis, meaning those in need can continue accessing healthy food,” said Elizabeth Charing, philanthropy officer for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
