Bruce Power’s Suppliers have donated $10,000 to the Liv-A-Little Foundation, which is focused on finding a cure for Cystinosis.
Liv-A-Little was started in 2013 by the family of Olivia Little, a Port Elgin girl who has battled the disease since she was a toddler. The foundation raises awareness and money for research into the rare metabolic disease that affects only about 2,000 people worldwide.
Each August, the foundation carries out its Paint the Town Purple campaign in Saugeen Shores to help promote awareness and raise funds through the sale of purple ribbons to be displayed in the community.
“Our suppliers are active members in our communities and we’re pleased to help out such a worthy cause to support Olivia and the Liv-a-Little Foundation,” said John Peevers, Bruce Power’s Director of Community and Media Relations, and Economic Development.

The Bruce Power Supplier 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, and hospital foundations. Forty suppliers are supporting the program in 2022, which donates about $600,000 to these initiatives annually.
