Jonathan Best took ad­van­tage of Sta­toil’s ‘He­roes of To­mor­row Pro­gram’ and des­ig­nated a $500 gift to the Burin Penin­sula Health Care Cen­tre’s O.R. Cam­paign.

Mr. Best, for­merly from Cre­ston South, is now work­ing at Sta­toil as a Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer (trainee) in Cal­gary, Al­berta.

Burin Penin­sula Health Care Foun­da­tion CDO Sharon Snook thanked Jonathan on be­half of the Board for re­mem­ber­ing the folks back home, and more im­por­tantly for rec­og­niz­ing the need to sup­port projects such as the cur­rent Op­er­at­ing Room Cam­paign at BPHCC.

“Our board has been very for­tu­nate in gain­ing the re­spect and sup­port of for­mer res­i­dents – many have made it a pri­or­ity to help out when­ever they can. It all adds up and cer­tainly makes a dif­fer­ence right here on the Burin Penin­sula.”

Sta­toil, from Nor­way, is an in­ter­na­tional en­ergy com­pany op­er­at­ing in sev­eral coun­tries around the world. Many New­found­lan­ders are cur­rently em­ployed with the com­pany.

Mrs. Snook said com­pa­nies, such as Sta­toil, are to be com­mended for es­tab­lish­ing pro­grams such as ‘ He­roes of To­mor­row’.

“This is the sec­ond time the BPHCF has re­ceived fi­nan­cial sup­port from Sta­toil ($1,500 was do­nated in Septem­ber 2013 for the an­nual hospi­tal golf tour­na­ment).

“It’s a chal­lenge to ad­dress global is­sues to keep pace with progress at our lo­cal health cen­tre, but it gets a lit­tle eas­ier ev­ery time in­di­vid­u­als like Jonathan and com­pa­nies like Sta­toil help out. Gifts such as this not only of­fer fi­nan­cial sup­port but en­cour­age oth­ers to re­spond, thank you.”

Jonathan Best, a for­mer res­i­dent of Marys­town and a son of Ray and Brenda Best, has pre­sented a $500 Sta­toil ‘He­roes for To­mor­row’ do­na­tion to the Burin Penin­sula Health Care Foun­da­tion’s O.R. Cam­paign.
