Kirmac Donates $120K to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation

Kirmac Collision & Autoglass, a British Columbia-based collision repair company, presented a check for $120,000 to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation Miracle Weekend telethon that ran June 4 to 5 in Vancouver. The contribution comes as part of the company’s charitable program, "Kirmac Cares for Kids," which donates a percentage of income from each vehicle repair to the Foundation.
 
"As a proud, family-owned business that’s operated for nearly 40 years, it gives us great pleasure to be able to give back to the kids," said Kirmac’s CEO Ian McIntosh. "Our customers have been a key contributor to this program and we hope they will continue to support it and help us make a difference every year for those who need our help the most.”
 
The "Kirmac Cares for Kids" program started last year in all of Kirmac’s 10 Vancouver lower mainland locations. The donation also included contributions from Kirmac employees through activities such as “Jeans Day Friday” and regular payroll deductions.
 
BC Children’s Hospital is located in Vancouver and provides expert care for the province’s most seriously ill or injured children, including newborns and adolescents. The hospital also provides vital specialized health services that may not be available anywhere else in the province.
 
Overall, the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation raised $17.9 million during this year’s annual fundraiser telethon, surpassing its goal by nearly one million dollars.
