Lisa Carter Advertising Manager, recently presented a cheque in the amount of $7,500 and said “The company is continuing its outreach programme which begun in 2001 and aims to support community based initiatives; and also provide assistance, to a number of local charities. She added that the funds came from proceeds collected through donation boxes located at all 15 restaurants and we are grateful to the public for their contributions especially in these challenging economic times. The company also contributes to the overall total.”
Recently at Chefette’s Corporate Office, Mr. John Campbell, Treasurer of the Organization received the cheque and expressed gratitude to the restaurant chain, and said, “The funds received will go towards education and outreach of persons living with diabetes. The outreach programme is to assist those persons who cannot come into the office for treatment and education”.
