Five-dollar beers rack up big donation for Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation

Chilliwack brewing company had customers buy beer for health care workers, first responders

Early this spring, Old Yale Brewing challenged its customers to support the front line with a ‘Beer for our Health Heroes and First Responders’ campaign.

The campaign allowed people to buy a $5 beer that would be given to a Fraser Valley Health Hero or first responder. On top of that, Old Yale Brewing committed to a matching donation of a further $10 to the Fraser Valley Heath Care Foundation (FVHCF).

The campaign wrapped up May 31, with a donation to the FVHCF for a total of $1,670.

“We are forever grateful of the support our community partners at Old Yale Brewing,” said Liz Harris, executive director of FVHCF. “And of course, our thanks go out to their thirsty customers that supported the front line.”

If you would like to also help support the Chilliwack General hospital you can do so online at www.fvhcf.ca or please call the office at 1-877-661-0314.
