The Beer Store raised almost $12,000 for the Hawkesbury & District General Hospital Foundation (HGH) through a recent in-store fundraiser.
Rick Moreno, Beer Store manager, and Danielle Lacelle, fundraising captain, and the store staff collected donations from customers in the form of cash or bottles and cans brought in for deposit. The campaign amassed $11,936.68 when it was over.
“The Beer Store in Hawkesbury raised funds for the HGH Foundation with the help of the incredible generosity of our customers,” stated Moreno. “Mrs. Lacelle, the staff, and I were happy to make raising money for our regional hospital a focus during the pandemic.”
The money raised goes to the HGH Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, which helps support HGH with funding for medical equipment and other necessary resources to care for patients, their families, and hospital staff during the pandemic.
“The HGH Foundation is so grateful to be the recipient of this wonderful gift from the Beer Store and its customers,” stated Christine Gray St-Denis, HGH Foundation philanthropic projects coordinator. “Their generous support during these challenging times will make a significant difference for our regional hospital.”
