Brandt Group of Companies Donates $250,000 to Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan
Brandt Group of Companies announced their commitment of $250,000 to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan at the Annual Children’s Hospital Jeans & Jewels Gala presented by Mosaic, held Friday evening at TCU place in Saskatoon.
“The Brandt Group of Companies is proud to support the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan through our Thanks a Billion Program”, says Shaun Semple, President of Brandt Group of Companies. “We are proud to join in this very worthy cause”. The Thanks a Billion Program was introduced when Brandt surpassed a major milestone of $1 billion in annual revenue as a way of expressing appreciation to the communities, customers, and employees who helped them reach this level of success. Since the program began, Brandt has given back over $8.7 million dollars which includes donations to more than 195 charitable initiatives in 92 communities.
Brandt’s generous gift will be directed towards the Foundation’s Capital Campaign which will provide funding for enhancements in the new Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan. “We are very confident that our donation provides meaningful dollars to provide exceptional care to the children of Saskatchewan in an environment that supports safer, more patient and family-centered care”, added Semple.
“The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan is incredibly grateful for the generous gift that is being made by Brandt Group of Companies. This contribution reflects Brandt’s Saskatchewan pride and belief in the people of our Province. Their gift will positively impact many children, mothers and families as we get closer to building our Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan. We are honoured by the generosity of the Semple family and are thrilled that they have chosen to support our Foundation and the building of our children’s provincial hospital”, says Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.
