CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnTrac, a logistics company specializing in delivery services in the Western United States, 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. Go to  https://knixcountry.iheart.com/featured/million-can-crusade/ 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."

In addition to the donation to St. Vincent de Paul, OnTrac is a proud supporter of giving back to the communities where employees live and serve. Since 2014, OnTrac has given monetary donations of $79,124 to a variety of charities within their eight-state footprint. Some of these great causes include the Treasure House Phoenix, Tyrann Mathieu Foundation, United Ostomy Association of American, Habitat for Humanity, North American Nature Photography Association, Salvation Army, and Red Cross.
