In our latest community project we have partnered with Sara, owner of Trusted Saskatoon and my friends Cavrin, Kim & Tim Karchut at Hudson Bay Distillers to launch Flash Fresh – Supporting Trusted Saskatoon Partners In Need Campaign…
In April 2020, Cavrin owner of Hudson Bay Distillers reached out to us with an idea to see if we wanted to buy and distribute hand sanitizer. In this time of Covid it was a pretty rare commodity and Hudson Bay Distillers was one of the handful of distilleries around the province that had been approved by the Saskatchewan Government to shift their focus from selling alcohol to making and distributing hand sanitizer. Brodie is an entrepreneur and saw the opportunity to do well, but being the community spirited guy he is, he immediately thought about how he could help instead of profit from this opportunity!
A Fundraising Campaign
Knowing the massive negative impact on small local business in our community due to the pandemic, but also recognizing he can’t help every small business in need in Saskatoon, he decided the best thing was to support the Trusted Saskatoon partners in the community he belongs to that have been hardest hit financially from the Covid Pandemic lockdowns in Saskatoon. Once he shared the idea with Sara Wheelwright, the owner of Trusted Saskatoon, she was thrilled to be able to step up and help.
