The staff of McConnell Transport Ltd. donated $457.75 to the Canadian Red Cross’ HELP program from weekly donations for wearing jeans on Friday.
For more than 50 years the Canadian Red Cross (www.redcross.ca) has been offering Health Equipment Loan Programs. These programs vary across the country according to types of health and medical equipment provided, length of loan, access procedures, and type of service.
The Red Cross provides more than 50,000 pieces of health equipment to Atlantic Canadians every year, ranging from crutches and canes to specialized equipment such as wheelchairs. The HELP program rely on volunteers and the generous support of donors like the staff at McConnell Transport.
