Celebrating 30 years and $30 million

Save-On-Foods hits milestone in commitment to child health

Thirty years have created 30 million miracles, thanks to Save-On-Foods!

Save-On-Foods, its team members, customers and suppliers have been raising funds for BC Children’s Hospital since the 1980s.

Their support has benefited nearly every area of the hospital, contributing to the purchase of high-priority medical equipment, expansion of the Emergency Department, childhood disease research at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics, and the Child Health BC initiative.

In 2016 Save-On-Foods fulfilled its most ambitious fundraising commitment to date. Its remarkable $20-million gift to Child Health BC was one of the biggest and most significant pledges ever made to BC Children’s Hospital. By building a strong system of health services for children and youth, providing pediatric training to caregivers province-wide, and leading collaboration with community health providers, Child Health BC improves access to care for children across the province, no matter where they live.

Cumulatively, Save-On-Foods has contributed $30 million to our hospital. This past May, Save-On-Foods team members joined patients, caregivers and special guest Expo Ernie, the official mascot of Expo 86, on a visit to BC Children’s to celebrate 30 years of giving and $30 million raised.

“We’re a local BC company, proudly serving customers in communities across the province. We know our customers and our team members rely on BC Children’s Hospital, so we are proud to help them any way we can,” says Darrell Jones, president of Save-On-Foods. “We can’t think of a better way to ensure bright futures for the children of BC than to make sure they get the care they need, close to home.”

Thank you, Save-On-Foods, for your long- standing commitment to the health and well-being of British Columbia’s children and families.
