In honour of Remembrance Day, Bruce Power’s supplier partners are making a $50,000 donation to Wounded Warriors Canada, as well as a $13,000 donation to Royal Canadian Legion branches in Grey and Bruce counties.
In 2019, Bruce Power and its supplier partners reached a milestone of $1 million donated to Wounded Warriors Canada – becoming the first $1 million donor in the history of the organization, which provides programs that assist with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma recovery, education, job skills training, and veterans transitioning to civilian life.
“Wounded Warriors Canada and the Royal Canadian Legion play an incredibly important role in the lives of thousands of Canadian military members, veterans, first responders and their families,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “Bruce Power and our supplier partners are proud to continue supporting these organizations in honour of the achievements and sacrifices of Canadians during wartime, in peacekeeping operations around the world, and responding to events here at home.”
“Bruce Power has stood beside us since our inception and, year-after-year, they continue to highlight their care, compassion and support for our injured Veterans and their family members,” said Scott Maxwell, Executive Director, Wounded Warriors Canada. “At a time when we’re seeing unprecedented demand for our mental health services, we couldn’t be more grateful for the continued support from Bruce Power and its supply chain partners.”
The Bruce Power Charitable Events Sponsorship 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, provincial vaccination efforts, and hospital foundations. A total of 37 suppliers supported the program, which will donate more than $500,000 to these initiatives in 2021.
