Stokes International makes their fourth donation with a cheque for $ 6473.00 to Muscular Dystrophy Canada on behalf of all their customers as part of their yearly program that has raised to date over $ 30,955 in just four short years!
On Monday, May 6th David Mellor, President of Stokes International, presented the cheque at this year’s Ontario Fire Chiefs Conference in Toronto to Kevin Harrison, National Director of Corporate Giving for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Alongside for the event was John Uptegrove, Captain from Puslinch Fire and Rescue, and Art Brown, Fire Chief of Mississippi Mills Fire Services. David Mellor explained, “this is an opportunity for Stokes to help support and give back and we are pleased to be partnered with Muscular Dystrophy Canada, a truly worthy cause, and we look forward to continuing to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada for many years to come.” David went on to say that the program was initiated to help celebrate Stokes 60th year in business in 2009 and that his Grandfather, the founder of Stokes Cap and Regalia, would be proud of what they’ve been able to achieve.
Stokes International would like to thank all their customers and they look forward to raising the bar for 2014.
David Mellor was ecstatic about his group’s support, stating, “my father Lloyd Mellor is proud of our team that continues the good work and social responsibility that the Stokes team has endorsed. As a company that sells to the Fire, Police, Paramedic, EMS, Security and Military Services across this great country it’s important to remember that our customers are buying our products to continue important traditions of quality and pride in their services, and charity is a big part of those traditions.”
Stokes looks forward to telling their customers how they’re making a difference – together in the many years to come.
We couldn’t do it without you!
