Beer drinkers in Thunder Bay have another way to support local healthcare this month.
District Manager Gary Brown said that all five locations of The Beer Store in Thunder Bay will be allowing customers to direct money they would have received from returns to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation.
“All they have to say is that they want to donate their empties, and we have a special donation button on our tills,” Brown said. “During the month of July, all donations will go towards the Hospital.”
Brown said that The Beer Store routinely chooses local charities to direct their fundraising. That’s because part of The Beer Store’s core business values is giving back to communities, he said. Most locations across Ontario decided to give back to local healthcare in July.
“It was a common charity across the province this month,” Brown said. “All the stores in the North chose to donate to their local hospitals based on the challenges they’ve faced over the last year. We are thankful to the incredible hospitals and community organizations that are helping Ontario navigate through COVID-19.”
All donations collected will help fund vital medical equipment at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, to provide closer-to-home care for patients in Thunder Bay and across Northwestern Ontario.
To make you donation, simply visit any of the five The Beer Store locations in Thunder Bay during the month of July and tell the staff you would like to donate your empties to the Hospital. Thank you!
