Employees with Valard Construction Ltd. hail from Terrenceville, Grand Le Pierre, English Harbour East Rencontre East and Garnish.
Valard Construction Ltd. president Adam Budzinski said the gift was granted as a way to thank employees who have contributed to the growth and success of the company.
“Valard employs a large number of individuals from the Burin Peninsula and we simply wanted to make a grant available to a charity of their choice.”
Employee Joe Rideout made the presentation at the hospital on the company’s behalf.
“Our group directed this gift to the Burin Peninsula Health Care Foundation because we wanted to support health care on the Burin Peninsula. We’re happy to be able to provide this gift and thank our employer for recognizing our work in such a grand manner.”
Foundation Board chair Jerry Pike said the funding would be used to purchase new operating room equipment at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre.
“It is wonderful that Valard employees choose our healthcare charity. We’re very thankful for that. You clearly have an employer who appreciates the work you do. With so many of our residents working away these days, it’s great that companies like Valard can show such great appreciation. What a fantastic help this is for us. Thank you all.”
Valard, a Canadian utility contractor, with full-service capabilities for transmission, distribution and telecommunications, has grown from a small family firm in Edmonton into one of Canada’s leading power-line builders.
