Posted on Feb 26, 2018 4:33:27 PM

OnTrac is announcing their partnership with the American Cancer Society (ACS) for the third year in a row. Since 2016, OnTrac has teamed up with ACS to host a Relay For Life event at the corporate office in Chandler, Arizona. Within the past two years, this event has raised over $10,000 in donations that help fund cancer research, education, prevention efforts as well as free information and services for cancer patients. OnTrac is excited to join ACS in their mission to “save lives, celebrate life, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.” The event is taking place on Thursday, March 15, 2018 from 10am to 2pm at 2501 South Price Road, Chandler, AZ 85286 and is open to the community.

The OnTrac Relay For Life event starts at 10am with a leading lap celebration for cancer survivors and caretakers. The walking path is the exterior of the Continuum Business Park and is approximately one mile long. A picnic style lunch of hamburgers and hotdogs will be served for each participant. Expect a day filled with camaraderie along with celebrating survivors and honoring loved ones lost.

“We are so thankful for OnTrac and their corporate citizenship for joining the mission of the American Cancer Society,” says American Cancer Society Executive Director Ashley DeGooyer. “Their support and generosity goes beyond the ACS organization. It also touches those who are currently battling cancer, may face a diagnosis in the future and those who may avoid a diagnosis thanks to education, prevention, and early detection.” 

As a team, OnTrac is hoping to pass the amount of miles that were walked in previous years, which were 356 miles in 2017 and 377 miles in 2016. Based on the amount of miles or laps walked, OnTrac will make a donation to the American Cancer Society. If you would like to help OnTrac surpass their goal by joining in the walk or by making a monetary donation, please email OnTrac Public Relations Manager Katrina Fox at kfox@ontrac.com.

A grand total of 2,376,063 cans were donated and will fill St. Vincent de Paul’s community food pantries. From there, the cans will be placed into food boxes and delivered to hungry families throughout the Valley.

“All of us at St. Vincent de Paul are so blessed to have partners like OnTrac that allow us to help so many people in our community, especially during the holiday season,” says Shannon Clancy, associate executive director and chief philanthropy officer from St. Vincent de Paul. “Each dollar and can of food donated not only provides hungry families with the food they need, but also lets them know that they are not alone in their moment of need. We are grateful to our friends at OnTrac who demonstrate the kindness, love and generosity of this community that cares. Thank you, OnTrac, for all that you make possible for those in need all year long.”

OnTrac Donates $1,500 to the 10th Annual 102.5 KNIX Million Can Crusade

OnTrac joins the 10th annual 102.5 KNIX Million Can Crusade kickoff event with a check for a $1,500 donation to St. Vincent de Paul, which is equivalent to 15,000 cans of food. The Million Can Crusade, in its tenth year, has received support from OnTrac for seven consecutive years since 2011. The goal for 2017, as it has been every year, is to collect one million cans of non-perishable food for St. Vincent de Paul to feed hungry families during the holiday season.

In previous years, OnTrac has contributed to the one million canned food goal by creating a friendly competition among employees at the corporate office in Chandler, Arizona. This year, OnTrac is expanding the competition to include the two Valley facilities in Phoenix. If at least 5,000 cans are collected by OnTrac, the employees will be rewarded with an office celebration for all three Valley locations. The department with the most cans collected will receive the Golden Can Award. Last year, the corporate office alone collected 6,323 cans of food plus a monetary donation of $1,500, which equaled over 20,000 cans of food in total. With the help of the Phoenix facilities, OnTrac hopes that not only will they meet their goal, but also that KNIX and St. Vincent de Paul will meet their goal too. The community plays a big part in helping KNIX and St. Vincent de Paul reach their goal. There are multiple locations set up that KNIX will be stationed at to collect donations. Click here for a list of all locations.

OnTrac Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Laura Peterson says, “November is a very exciting time for the OnTrac corporate office because we look forward to being a part of the Million Can Crusade every year. By adding all Valley employees this year, we are hoping to surpass the OnTrac donation of 6,323 cans of food from last year. Joining forces allows us to make a bigger impact and it is such a special thing to be able to help less families go hungry during the holidays.”

OnTrac Supports 8th Annual Million Can Crusade

Posted on Dec 4, 2015 11:35:12 AM

OnTrac joined KNIX Radio and St. Vincent de Paul in their fight against hunger. 2015 marks the fifth year that OnTrac has supported the Million Can Crusade by organizing a canned food drive at the OnTrac corporate office during the month of November.  In addition, OnTrac donated $1,500 to the cause at the KNIX Kickoff party on November 2, 2015. The donation is equivalent to 15,000 cans and helps bridge the gap to collect a total of one million cans. The OnTrac corporate office set a goal to collect 3,000 cans of food and surpassed the goal by 2,017, for a total of over 5,000 cans. In total with the monetary donation, OnTrac donated 20,017 cans to Million Can Crusade this year.

Million_Can_Crusade_2.jpg

KNIX Radio has hosted the million can crusade during the month of November since 2008. #hungersucks is the theme of the campaign in their eighth year. Ben and Matt In The Morning of KNIX Radio sold apparel with the slogan and one hundred percent of the proceeds went towards their goal to collect one million cans. In addition, tickets were sold to a special concert at Whiskey Row in Scottsdale featuring David Nail on Wednesday, November 25, 2015. Five dollars of each ticket sold went towards the goal as well. For more information, please visit their website, knixcountry.com/pages/million-can-crusade.

Morning show co-host Matt McAllister said, “During this time of the year, I feel so fortunate to help out in this way. It’s such a blessing to be able to do this for a living.”

“It’s a community effort,” said Ben Campbell, morning show co-host. “Every year it’s gotten a little bit bigger. I never imagined that the first year we’d hit the goal of one million cans or that this year we’d be over two million cans.”

Million_Can_Crusade_6.jpg

Additional to the canned food drive at OnTrac, there were multiple locations throughout the valley during the month where KNIX Radio collected cans from the community. In total, the Million Can Crusade collected 2,653,348 cans and will benefit more than 80 parish-based food pantries in the community to help feed hungry families this holiday season.
