Through their successful charitable program, Kirmac Cares for Kids, Kirmac Collision & Autoglass has joined our Community Champions program with a pledge of $250,000 to support the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
Kirmac Collision & Autoglass, a family-owned and operated British Columbia business, provides safe and reliable collision repair and autoglass services to its customers throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. Through its charitable program, Kirmac Cares for Kids, a percentage of Kirmac’s earned income from every repair is donated to help the children and youth of BC through Surrey Hospitals Foundation and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“It is an honour to expand the Kirmac Cares For Kids program to support children in Surrey and the surrounding communities,” says Sean McIntosh, President, Kirmac Collision & Autoglass. “Many of our customers live in these areas, and we are proud to support health care for those needing to visit the Children’s Heath Centre at Surrey Memorial.”
The Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital is the regional pediatric centre for Fraser Health, which is home to 43 per cent of the province’s children. Surrey’s population has increased by more than 50 per cent since the Centre opened in 2001. With support from donors, the Centre is undergoing an extensive renovation in which new clinics have been added, and other areas, such as Neurology, Cardiology & Nephrology (kidney) will now offer expanded services. A new pre and post surgery unit, and a new pediatric oncology unit are now complete.
Started in 2010, Kirmac Cares For Kids has raised more than $3 million dollars for the Children and Youth of BC. It’s donations include contributions from Kirmac’s customers, business partners and team members.
