Tbaytel adds to Flood Relief program



THUNDER BAY – Many families in Thunder Bay are still struggling to rebuild their lives after the May 28th flood and are in need of our community’s ongoing assistance. Tbaytel is helping to restore our neighbourhoods with fundraising programs that will assist the efforts in Thunder Bay and the surrounding area.

“Tbaytel has taken steps to ensure every employee understands what it means to take care of our neighbourhood,” said Don Campbell, President & CEO Tbaytel. “These fundraising initiatives reinforce that message and ultimately will provide much needed support to all of our neighbours who truly require this important assistance to help get their lives back on track.”

To assist, Tbaytel employees have stepped up and taken action. Tbaytel employees are donating directly to the initiative through a Tbaytel payroll deduction program. Each employee can choose to make a contribution, large or small, from their pay cheque.

Furthermore, Tbaytel employees can sign up for Dress-Down Mondays in the month of December. They will be encouraged to dress casually – jeans are quite welcome – every Monday, and by doing so will be raising more dollars for the Disaster Relief Fund.
Tbaytel will match all employee contributions!

A second initiative lead by Tbaytel is going to make it easier for everyone in Thunder Bay to donate to this most worthy cause. During the weeks of November 24 and November 30, donations can be made by customers visiting our Tbaytel Retail Store and any one of our Tbaytel Authorized Dealers. Each location will have special coin boxes available to make donations. Once again, Tbaytel will match all of these donations, dollar for dollar.

Finally, Tbaytel is promoting a special offer through its Tbaytel Digital TV product. For every Digital TV sale made in the months of November and December, Tbaytel will donate $25 to the Disaster Relief Fund.

“This is just another important way that Tbaytel gives back to the neighbourhood – the communities in which we live, work and play,” added Campbell. “We encourage everyone to join the effort. Remember, the Province of Ontario will match every dollar raised 2:1 therefore every dollar raised through our Tbaytel initiatives turns into $6 for the Thunder Bay Disaster Relief Fund!”
