Terrace BMO employees rolls up sleeves to help

The BMO group helped clean TDCSS child care centre in a Day of Caring with United Way of Northern BC

On July 25, 2017, BMO Terrace teamed up with United Way of Northern BC to provide some shine to the Terrace and District Community Services Society (TDCSS) Terrace Campus Child Care Centre.

Eight members from BMO put on gloves and got to work, cleaning and sanitizing the TDCSS centre in two four-hour shifts. One of pillars of United Way of Northern BC is helping kids be all that they can be, and keeping a child care centre clean is one of the best ways to ensure children stay healthy.

“The team had a lot of fun and it’s great to be able to give back to the community,” said Iain Acton, Branch Manager of Terrace BMO.

Lindsey Larsen, Community Development and Campaign Officer for United Way of Northern BC was there to help adding that, “BMO’s commitment to the Terrace community is just fantastic to see. It’s always so amazing to see businesses in the community giving back.”

Other businesses, groups or non-profits are welcome to take part in a United Way Day of Caring. For information visit: www.unitedwaynbc.ca.
