Also, Bruce Power’s Community Investment Fund donated $2,000 each to 38 area food banks, while also providing $11,000 in warm winter clothing to Bruce Grey Child and Family Services and Huron-Perth Children’s Aid.

“A key part of our company’s mission is to strengthen the communities in which our employees and their families live,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “We recognize the need to support our communities again this year, so we’re proud to offer a helping hand this holiday season.”

“By reaching our fundraising goal, we help these organizations make the holidays brighter for hundreds of local families,” Rencheck added.
