Friends Helping Friends was born 23 years ago, by an individual at CTV Calgary who had a great idea. She was inspired by a food drive she saw on a trip to Seattle, where a local TV station was working with a grocery store to help their Food Bank at a slower time of year for donations. She brought the idea forward to the Calgary management, and Friends Helping Friends came to life. The campaign started as a one-day event that station employees looked forward to volunteering for. Now, Friends Helping Friends is an annual Spring-time food and fund drive engaging all Calgary Safeway and Sobeys locations, CTV staff, and dozens of Food Bank volunteers for the month of April.
