Bruce Power and its partners raised $126,000 for Wounded Warriors Canada at a charity dinner on Nov. 9.
Wounded Warriors Canada honours and supports ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans, first responders and their families all across Canada. It provides assistance to transition the soldiers back to civilian life, while primarily focusing on mental health and learning to cope with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.
“It’s humbling, the courage and strength the members of our Armed Forces show every day,” said Harry Hall, Vice President, Supply Chain, who is himself a veteran. “We hope this donation will make it easier for our wounded soldiers to transition back to civilian life.”
Bruce Power also marked Remembrance Day with an on-site ceremony and by laying wreaths at numerous local cenotaphs.
