Kirmac Cares for Kids
Kirmac is proud to support BC Children’s Hospital Foundation by donating a percentage of earned income from every repair to help the kids. By having your vehicle repaired at Kirmac, you can turn the unfortunate experience of being involved in an auto accident into a chance to assist in providing better health for the children and youth of British Columbia.
Kirmac Cares for Kids was launched in all of Kirmac’s eleven British Columbia locations in September 2010. In April of 2011, Kirmac employees began regular contributions through payroll deductions and participation in “Jeans Day Friday”.
A cheque is presented annually at the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation Miracle Weekend telethon held during the month of June. The first cheque presentation was made June 2011 for $120,000. This year for 2014, Kirmac presented a cheque for $213,371.25 bringing the grand total donated in four years to $600,000. Together Kirmac’s Customers, Employees and Partners are making a difference in the care provided to children at BC Children’s Hospital!
