FortisBC employees give with warm hearts

Warm Hearts Charitable Foundation
A FortisBC employee-run charitable group has offered support to BC’s busiest cardiac care centre.

The Warm Hearts Charitable Foundation has made a $7,500 donation to Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation’s Cardiac Care Campaign. The money raised is helping to upgrade the monitoring and imaging equipment in the hospital’s cardiac cath lab.

The Warm Hearts Charitable Foundation supports the health and wellbeing of the communities close to the hearts of FortisBC employees. Since its inception in 1994, more than $900,000 has been donated by employees to charitable organizations throughout the company’s service areas. Warm Hearts was founded and is still managed today by employee volunteers.
