Delta Hospital Foundation gets $1

The results are in.

Delta Cable announced the Delta Hospital Foundation and Deltassist as the winners of the company’s recent Community Commitment Project.

Delta Cable offered to donate a total of $1,500 to two Delta-based organizations and invited Delta residents to the company’s Facebook page to vote for the organization they felt deserved the support.

“We’re committed to supporting organizations and community initiatives that make a real difference in our community,” said Delta Cable’s Marketing Manager Tannis Goodfellow.

“We decided a great way to demonstrate this commitment was to ask the Delta community how the funds should be awarded. We would like to congratulate the Delta Hospital Foundation and Deltassist as winners of the project. Both organizations provide valuable services to the Delta community and we’re honoured we are able to help support their causes.”

Delta Hospital Foundation’s executive director Veronica Carroll said she’s very pleased by the announcement.

“We’re so thrilled to be the recipient of Delta Cable’s Community Commitment Project. Delta Cable has continuously supported patient care at the Delta Hospital and the entire community benefits from their generosity.”

Doug Sabourin, executive director at Deltassist Family and Community Services, said his organization is honoured by the level of support received from both Delta Cable and the Delta community.

“Deltassist is pleased and proud to be announced as a winner in Delta Cable’s Community Commitment Project,” he said. “The number of votes both organizations received is evidence of the strong community support enjoyed by both. We would like to thank Delta Cable for running the contest and including Deltassist.”

Goodfellow said Delta residents can continue to rely on Delta Cable to support the community initiatives and organizations that make a difference in their community.
