When it comes to digging up support for a great cause, Mount Polley’s personnel and suppliers took their skills from the open pit to the BBQ pit. With each juicy burger flipped, they unearthed a mountain of generosity!
Over a series of BBQs held onsite at the mine (May 16th & 18th and May 30th & June 1st) Mount Polley raised a whopping $11,712 donation to the Mining for Miracles fundraiser – the proceeds of which were donated to BC Children’s Hospital, the chosen charity of Mount Polley and the BC Mining Industry.
Let’s take a closer look at the outcomes of this successful fundraising initiative and how the community rallied together to make a difference.
Generous Donations from Mount Polley’s Crews
Mount Polley’s four shift crews, namely A CREW, B CREW, C CREW, and D CREW, demonstrated their incredible support for the cause by contributing significant donations totalling $5,567.40.
A huge round of applause to all our crews for their donations and support!
