ONroute raises $48,723 for Support Our Troops after month-long campaign
ONroute Service Centres (ONroute) proudly presented Support Our Troops with a donation of $48,723, following a month-long fundraising campaign honouring Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) serving members, Veterans and their families.
Customers visiting any of ONroute’s 23 locations between November 1st and 30th were invited to donate one dollar to Support Our Troops for programs that support military members, the ill and injured, and contribute to empowering family resiliency.
“In November, Canadians pause to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country in uniform,” says Commodore (Ret’d) Sean N. Cantelon, CEO of Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS). “We are so appreciative of ONroute and their customers for the exceptional support shown to our military community throughout this campaign. Thanks to the generosity of Canadians stopping at ONroute on their travels, Support Our Troops can help make a difference in the lives of the women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families.”
In addition to the Support Our Troops fundraising campaign, ONroute also offered a free beverage to all service members and Veterans on Remembrance Day.
