7-Eleven to warm the chill of winter by supporting the VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation Angels

For every hot beverage sold at participating Tim Hortons at 7-Eleven stores $2 will be donated donated to the Angel campaign

/EIN News/ -- VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the spirit of the holidays, 7-Eleven has partnered with the Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) & UBC Hospital Foundation in support of their Angel campaign to spread the magic of the giving season for “10 Days of Goodness”. At select Esso stations across British Columbia with Tim Hortons at 7-Eleven stores, every hot beverage sold will result in a $2 donation to the Foundation.

The donations raised will go towards purchasing high-priority medical equipment and funding high-impact research projects to advance patient care for all of BC’s residents. For making a purchase at a participating store, customers will also receive an Angel lapel pin to commemorate their contribution.

Since the launch of the Angel Campaign in 2001, the winter wonderland trees at VGH, UBC Hospital and GF Strong Rehab Centre have been filled with thousands of angels carrying messages of love and gratitude to friends and family, medical teams and hospital staff. In 2016 alone, the Foundation raised over $610,000 during the holiday season and this year 7-Eleven is proud to come on board as a partner.

“At 7-Eleven, we are pleased to be able to help a worthy cause such as the Angel Campaign. During this festive time of year, we know that our customers are looking for ways to give back to their communities,” said Doug Rosencrans, Vice President and General Manager of 7-Eleven Canada. “We hope that our customers will find a reason to come in to these nine select Esso 7-Elevens in BC to enjoy their favourite Tim Hortons beverage this December in support of a worthwhile and deserving charity.”

“VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation’s Angel Campaign gives us all the opportunity to show appreciation for the angels in our lives. Thousands of angels—loved ones and health care professionals—are honoured every year during the holiday season,” said Barbara Grantham, President & CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. “We are so thankful for sponsors, like 7-Eleven because their support spreads the message of gratitude and helps raise more funds to support the most urgent needs in our hospitals and health care centers.”
