Delta thrift store raises $5,700 for Children’s Wish Foundation

As a company, Talize raises $25,000 for charity that helps grant wishes of terminally ill children

Staff members of Talize in Delta present a $25

DELTA — Staff members of a thrift store in Delta were all smiles as they presented a giant $25,000 cheque to representatives of the Children’s Wish Foundation.

And they had plenty of reasons to smile – their store raised $5,700, the most of any location in Talize’s company-wide fundraising campaign.

That meant the Delta store had the pleasure of presenting the cheque for the whole campaign on Thursday. As a company, Talize raised a total of $25,000.

The Children’s Wish Foundation is a uniquely Canadian charity that helps Canadian children, families and communities by granting the favourite wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

Talize is located at 11930 88 Ave. in Delta.
