The generosity of the Banff Hospitality Collective and its employees is truly amazing! At the beginning of March, 2017 the Bow Valley SPCA received a cheque for $3333. Katie Tuff, the director of BHC operations, explained that the front-of-house and the back-of-house staff all contributed almost $4000 over an eight day period in December 2016. BHC management had committed to match the amount raised by employees. Instead, they topped up the total amount to $10,000.
Employees were given the opportunity to choose the charities they wished to donate to. Along with the Bow Valley SPCA, the YWCA Banff and KidSport Bow Valley were the chosen charities. We are honored to be among such company.
The Bow Valley SPCA is especially grateful to the BHC for creating a program for hospitality workers (often young men and women who come to the Bow Valley for one or two seasons) to donate back to the community. We are even more appreciative of the support from the hospitality workers. We know that it can't be easy to give up tips and/or a portion of your salary for any reason.
If our dogs and cats could speak their thanks our adoption center would be a noisy place indeed.
