At Kirmac, we care about our customers and the communities in which we operate in. When you choose Kirmac to repair your vehicle, you also choose to support the Children and Youth of BC. Through Kirmac Cares for Kids, a percentage of Kirmac’s earned income from every repair is donated to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, Surrey Memorial Children’s Health Centre and Boys Club Network.
Founded in 2010 by the McIntosh family, Kirmac Cares for Kids has raised more than $3.5 million dollars. The money donated includes contributions from our customers, business partners and team members. With the support of everyone, we have been able to grow our donations.
BC Children's Hospital Foundation
Western Canada’s First Pediatric 3D Technology Program
With directed funding from Kirmac Cares for Kids, BC Children’s Hospital has launched Western Canada’s first pediatric 3D Technology Program. The program, equipment and technology will eventually support health procedures throughout the entire hospital. The 3D Technology Program includes 3D printers, software, staff, and related research.
Kirmac is proud and grateful to be a part of what BC Children’s Hospital and Foundation are doing to positively impact the lives of children in BC.
Surrey Memorial Children’s Health Centre
Kirmac Cares for Kids is proud to support the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Surrey Memorial has Fraser Health’s only children’s emergency department, and the only health facility in the Fraser Valley dedicated to children. Funds from Kirmac Cares for Kids support the overall running of the Children’s Health Centre.
The Boys Club Network
For many years, Kirmac has supported The Boys Club Network (BCN) through funding, providing mentorship and hosting the boys for various events.
BCN is a privately funded registered Canadian charity (Westcoast Boys Club Network Foundation) founded and operated by a committed team of BC secondary school administrators, teachers, counsellors, youth and wellness workers.
BCN helps young men aged 12-18 who are seeking connection by providing Hope, Opportunity, Positive Mentorship and Education. The network’s goal is to restore their personal accountability, as well as their confidence in themselves, in adults, and in society’s collective future.
BCN members, who are sons, brothers, and caregivers, are high-potential Canadian boys and young adults who, through mere circumstance, are at risk of losing their innocence, happiness, mental wellness and basic human potential, to hopelessness, unrealized education, underachievement, substance abuse as self-medication, negative social and/or illegal behaviors, and in some cases homelessness.
