Williams Food Equipment Fundraiser For Windsor-Essex Pride Fest

Williams Food Equipment announced a generous donation of $1,375 to the George Hannah Scholarship Fund, as part of its month-long knife sharpening campaign in August. This donation is a testament to the company’s commitment to supporting the local community and promoting diversity and inclusion.

The scholarship was established by the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest in 2015 in honour of George Hannah- a local community activist. The scholarship recognizes students that have demonstrated leadership and/or commitment to the community in the promotion of equality, diversity and/or awareness of 2SLGBTQIA+ issues in Windsor-Essex including ongoing social challenges including discrimination, exclusion, harassment and assault. To date, the scholarship has raised and contributed over $10,000 in scholarships to students at St. Clair College that promotes equality and diversity in our community.

Throughout the month of August 2023, Williams Food Equipment donated 100% of the proceeds of knife sharpening at its location on Ambassador Drive in Windsor, Ontario. This initiative garnered substantial support from the local community, as customers brought in their knives for sharpening while contributing to this meaningful cause.

The official donation ceremony took place on September 14th at 9 am at Williams Food Equipment’s store, located at 2150 Ambassador Drive in Windsor, Ontario. Representatives from Williams Food Equipment were joined by a board member of the Windsor Pride Fest to celebrate this generous contribution to the George Hannah Scholarship Fund.

“We are thrilled to make this donation to the George Hannah Scholarship Fund and be part of such a worthy cause,” said Candice-Rose Gagnon at Williams Food Equipment. “Our knife sharpening campaign was a tremendous success, and we are grateful to our customers and the community for their support in making this donation possible. We believe in creating an inclusive and supportive community, and this contribution aligns perfectly with our values.”
