Over 30 members of Bruce Power’s supply chain are giving food banks in Bruce, Grey and Huron counties a boost to help local residents who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the Bruce Power Charitable Events Sponsorship Program, 38 local food banks will each receive $1,000 from the nuclear supplier partners. The program aligns the company’s vendor partners with local, provincial and national non-profit organizations that focus on Indigenous youth, health and wellness organizations, Canadian veterans and local Legions, food banks, and hospital foundations. Suppliers will donate over $500,000 to these initiatives in 2021.
“Every time we have reached out to the members of the nuclear supply chain for support, their response has been overwhelming,” said Richard Horrobin, Bruce Power’s Vice President and Managing Director, Supply Chain. “Our food banks are doing incredible work helping members of the community bridge the gap during a very difficult time. We thank the dedicated employees and volunteers, as well as our supplier partners, for their continued efforts to reduce food insecurity in our region.”
