Volunteering for a cause

A local resident has made his volunteer hours count, with his efforts going towards the purchase of a portable ultrasound unit for Mills Memorial Hospital.

A local resident has made his volunteer hours count, with his efforts going towards the purchase of a portable ultrasound unit for Mills Memorial Hospital.

The money was given May 24 as a part of Telus’ “Dollars for Doers” program, which recognizes volunteer hours put in by employees and retired employees with donations to a charity of their choice.

Terrace’s Ron Anderson has clocked in 213 hours helping out in the community through the Terrace Power and Sail Squadron, the Happy Gang Centre and work at the Eby St. Fish Hatchery.

With these hours, he’s been recognized with a $500 donation by Telus to the R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation.

Brian Wilman from Telus said the program is a very important to the business.

“We’re proud to be supportive of our retirees,” Wilman said.
