In a generous show of support and appreciation for the sacrifices that frontline workers make every time they go to work, Acres Enterprises, TechCanada and Kamloops Tim Hortons are donating $5,000 worth of Tim Hortons gift cards to employees at Royal Inland Hospital. The gift, $2,000 each from Acres and TechCanada and $1,000 from Kamloops Tim Hortons, was made possible due to donations on Acres and TechCanada’s websites, as well as a direct donation from Kamloops Tim Hortons.
“Acres and TechCanada came together and wanted to give a little something back to the frontline workers who are helping in these difficult times, and in doing so, hopefully bring the biggest smile to the most amount of people,” Jason Paige, President of Acres Enterprises explained. Aric Ferguson, President and CEO of TechCanada agreed, stating, “As community involvement in all of our operating municipalities is part of our core values, TechCanada was honoured to have been included in partnering with Acres to recognize the contribution of frontline workers during this unprecedented health event. The Management and Staff of TechCanada are thankful to each and every front line worker for their selfless contributions.”
According to Heidi Coleman, RIH Foundation CEO, it is heartwarming to see the community coming together, particularly in support of frontline workers. “As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it is important not to let up – not only in terms of physical distancing and other health measures, but also in terms of keeping frontline workers in mind and continually showing our support as they go to battle for all of us. On behalf of RIH staff, I would like to thank Acres Enterprises, TechCanada and Tim Hortons for this wonderful gift! ”
The 333 gift cards, in $15 denominations, have already been delivered to RIH, and will be equitably distributed to employees.
