Original Joe’s Restaurant and Bar has shown its support for children facing medical challenges.
The restaurant chain, which includes a Vernon location, has presented Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation with $3,289, which was raised from the community pint program.
“The Original Joe’s Community Care Fund allows our various locations in the Okanagan to contribute to the community in a meaningful way,” said Michael Molen, Original Joe’s area manager.
“Cops for Kids is an important organization that we are proud to support.”
For the last four months, Original Joe’s and Okanagan Spring Brewery each donated 25 cents to Cops for Kids for every Okanagan Spring pint sold at OJ’s locations in the Okanagan.
Cops for Kids is an RCMP-based organization committed to assisting children that are in medical, physical or traumatic crisis.
“We are driven by our commitment to the children in our communities,” said Gail Harrison, Cops for Kids president.
“We hear stories every day about the impact of our work, but we owe a debt of gratitude to the local businesses like Original Joe’s that support us and allow us to continue moving forward and make a difference in more children’s lives.”
