Save-On-Foods, on behalf of its generous customers, team members and supplier and business partners, presented an amazing $2.1 million to BC Children’s Hospital at the annual Miracle Weekend Telethon.

The grand total represents another year of successful fundraising through store-led initiatives, such as barbecues, hot dog sales, and pie throwing; and corporate initiatives, including the Round Up for Kids campaign, where customers can round up their bill to the nearest dollar and donate the difference, and the Save-On-Foods Charity Golf Tournament, which raised $613,831 in one day.

Save-On-Foods has supported BC Children’s Hospital for more than 30 years and has donated more than $30 million to the hospital.

“Every year I am inspired by the outstanding support Save-On-Foods team members, customers, suppliers and business partners show for BC Children’s Hospital,” said Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones.

“Because of the Save-On-Foods community, our company is able to donate millions of dollars to this amazing organization and help children and families from across the province get the care they need. I am so grateful for the heart our people put into fundraising and am so proud to present this cheque on behalf of all of them.”
