Another Phenomenal Year!
BC Transit employees have been our longest consistent corporate partner in terms of employee giving. We were again humbled and honoured to receive a cheque representing funds raised through the BC Transit employee giving campaign in 2019, as well as many additional fundraising events and activities.
The donation of $26,000 will do so much good in our community – thank you to everyone who contributed to this grand total!
We’re very proud of the long connection we’ve had with BC Transit employees. It was in 1986 that Victoria transit driver, Rick Thomas, met a seven year old bus passenger suffering from a terminal illness. More than anything, she wanted to visit her grandmother in Nova Scotia. Rick was so determined to find funds to grant this young girl’s dream that he set out to make it happen. This first dream sparked the idea for something even bigger, and the Help Fill a Dream Foundation was formed within the year.
The spirit of Rick’s good work has been upheld by BC Transit drivers and employees ever since. They continue to fundraise, volunteer and donate to help make the impossible, possible for children like the first Dream child, Bernadette.
