The Beer Store in Hawkesbury has raised $11,936.68 in support of the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital (HGH) Foundation.

Lead by store manager Rick Moreno and fundraising captain Danielle Lacelle, the staff at the Beer Store’s Hawkesbury location held an in-store fundraiser to help support their regional hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. Customers were invited to participate through monetary donations or donations of empty cans and bottles.

“The Beer Store in Hawkesbury raised funds for the HGH Foundation with the help of the incredible generosity of our customers. Mrs. Lacelle, the staff and I were happy to make raising money for our regional hospital a focus during the pandemic,” said Moreno.

This donation will be directed towards the HGH Foundation’s COVID-19 relief fund, which continues to support HGH with funding for medical equipment and other resources needed to care for its patients, their families and the staff during this pandemic.

“The HGH Foundation is so grateful to be the recipient of this wonderful gift from the Beer Store and its customers.  Their generous support during these challenging times will make a significant difference for our regional hospital,” said Christine Gray St-Denis, Philanthropic Projects Coordinator, HGH Foundation.
