Highline mushrooms raise over $18,000 for Philippines Typhoon Relief Fund

In response to the devastating typhoon which hit the Philippines last month, Highline Mushrooms and their associates have collectively raised a total of $18,368 to aid in the relief of those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

When members of Highline’s Leamington Filipino community learned of the typhoon that was causing major destruction in the Philippines, they took immediate action and began collecting funds. In just under two weeks, associates from all Highline farms contributed $9,184 towards the relief fund. “In times of great disaster, we can always rely on the kindness and support of our associates. The generosity shown by our associates is overwhelming and we would like to thank each and every one who contributed towards the relief fund,” says Susan McBride Friesen, Director of Human Recourses.

In addition to the funds raised by their associates, Highline is matching this donation and a grand total of $18,368 has been donated to the Canadian Red Cross. The funds donated will go to providing life-saving emergency services in the form of food, clean water, health and emergency shelter.
