TELUS donates more than $15, 000 to support the Powell River General Hospital Foundation on behalf of new TELUS Satellite TV customers
Powell River, B.C. – TELUS is donating $15, 000 to the Powell River General Hospital Foundation as a result of its TELUS Satellite TV campaign which gave $100 on behalf of every new TELUS TV customer in Powell River for the last year.
“TELUS' donation to the Powell River Hospital Foundation could not have been more timely, ” said Dal Materson, president of the Powell River General Hospital Foundation. “Their donation will allow us to fulfill an urgent request from our local dentists, and immediately purchase essential dental surgery equipment. It will make possible the continuation of important dental surgery operations within the Hospital. We greatly appreciate TELUS' community spirit. The connection they have made to our community through this generous gift is most welcomed and in keeping with the fine Powell River legacy of helping our neighbours and community. Thank you, TELUS.”
“This campaign was a wonderful way for TELUS to support Powell River, ” said Mike Black, TELUS general manager of Customer Solutions Delivery for the community. “We are thrilled with the results. Not only will our customers in Powell River benefit from our all-digital TELUS TV service, this gift will help boost the provision of important medical services right here in our community.”
The Powell River General Hospital Foundation raises much-needed funds for equipment to support the Powell River Hospital. It is run by volunteers concerned about the quality of health care in Powell River.
Since 2000, TELUS, team members and retirees have contributed almost $22, 000 to Powell River charities and community organizations.
TELUS is investing $350, 000 in Powell River this year to further expand and enhance its wireless and wireline networks, part of the company's $670 million infrastructure investment across British Columbia in 2011. This year's network investment builds upon the $24 billion TELUS has invested in its operations and technology in the province in the last 10 years.
