Beer Store customers across the province have come through in a big way for hospitals and food banks in their communities.
$2.3 million was donated by customers during a recent donation drive, launched on March 17.
Customers were asked if they wanted to donate the money from their empties to the charities.
In Waterloo Region, $171,000 was raised for our three hospitals.
"We thank the people of Ontario for their incredible generosity. To donate their returns in such large numbers clearly demonstrates how much they want to show their support for people working at local Health Centres and Foodbanks," said Beer Store President Ted Moroz.
