Together We Can Drive Change
Every year, Q-Line Trucking works closely with a local charity to provide support and to gain awareness for a special cause. Over the years, Saskatoon has grown and so have the challenges of those facing issues related to mental health, addiction, and poverty. Without adequate housing or incomes, many people face homelessness as well as hunger. In December of 2013, The Saskatoon Friendship Inn launched their Fill the Plate Campaign which generates revenue to help feed Saskatoon’s inner city.
For the second year, Q-Line Trucking and their staff are committed to raise donations in support of the Saskatoon Friendship Inn and hope to surpass the total of $17,940 raised in 2014.

“As an organization, Saskatoon Friendship Inn is responsive, compassionate, and fosters a sense of belonging. It relies on community wide partnerships and support in fulfilling its commitment to regular meal service and friendship.
Within the resources available to it, Saskatoon Friendship Inn is also committed to individual and group services and programs for children, youth and adults who experience poverty in order to help them help themselves and each other. We believe in community development, public education, and advocacy to encourage compassionate solutions to poverty in our city.”1
