FUEL GOOD DAYS RETURNS IN SUPPORT OF NANAIMO & DISTRICT HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
NANAIMO, BC – September 12, 2023 – After the success of 2022’s event, Mid Island Co-op is again partnering with the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation (NDHF) for Fuel Good Day this September 19th,2023 across the Central Island.
Ten cents from every liter of gas pumped on Fuel Good Day will directly support enhancing critical care for residents north of the Malahat by tripling capacity for critical care.
“Mid Island Co-op is pleased to partner with the NDHF again in a committed effort to elevate tertiary care treatment for central Vancouver Island, shared Mid Island Co-op CEO Ian Anderson “We are very proud to have supported the first stage of the recently opened ICU at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and now we get to support our community further with Phase 2 of the High Acuity Unit. This year our Salt Spring and Harewood locations will be hosting a BBQ fundraiser and we will be collecting donations across all our sites. The Mid Island Co-op leadership team will also be on location at various gas bars to help wash windows, connect with the community, and raise awareness about Fuel Good Day as one of our most impactful campaigns of the year.”
This year, residents have even more opportunities to participate in Fuel Good Days and give where they live. From September 12th through September 19th Mid Island Co-op Liquor locations are donating $1.00 from every bottle of Route 19 wine and six-pack of My Island Beer to NDHF. Mid Island Co-op Liquor locations can be found here.
“We are honoured to be the recipient of Mid Island Co-op’s Fuel Good Day and it’s contributions will directly support state of the art medical equipment for the critical care spaces at NRGH serving over 450,000 Central Island Residents,” shared Barney Ellis-Perry, Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation CEO. “I personally will be out September 19th washing windows and meeting our amazing community to thank them for supporting our local health care community.”
