Hilary Duff encouraging food donations to The Salvation Army



    VANCOUVER, Aug. 3 /CNW/ - Recording artist Hilary Duff is asking fans to
bring canned goods to her concert in support of The Salvation Army and
Canadian Harvest. Duff's Dignity Tour lands at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum on
Friday, August 3 and at the Save-On Foods Centre in Victoria on Saturday,
August 4. Her last two Canadian tours have raised more than 125,000 pounds of
food.
    "Working with Canadian Harvest is a way for me to give something back to
the community," said Duff. "The last two times I toured Canada, my fans did an
amazing job of providing canned goods and I'm certain this time they can do
even better!"
    The partnership between Duff, The Salvation Army and Canadian Harvest
launched this summer in Winnipeg on July 28, with the kick-off of Duff's
six-week North American tour. Food donations will be collected at 12 shows
across Canada. Food will be collected at concert gates by Salvation Army
volunteers and will be distributed in the communities where it was collected.
Duff is encouraging fans to bring as much as they can carry.

    Canadian Harvest and its American counterpart USA Harvest began in 1989.
Since then, the organization has collected more than 11.6 billion pounds of
food for missions, soup kitchens and food banks across North America. The
Salvation Army will assist in distributing collected food to those who need
it.

    The Salvation Army is the largest non-governmental provider of social
services in British Columbia. For more information on The Salvation Army,
