Heroes of Tomorrow gift for O.R. Campaign
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.
