Rentco Equipment Limited has announced a $60,000 donation for six Peace Country charities to celebrate Rentco’s 60th anniversary in the region.
The family-owned business has been in the Peace Country since 1963, and Rentco says the donation will be evenly distributed among the company’s 6 locations in the Peace Region. Recipients of the donation include Camp Heal-A-Heart, Technical Search & Rescue, Men’s Shed, Ground Level Youth Centre in Peace River, Bulterys House in Dawson Creek, and the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society.
Rentco President Drew Shields says the charities were chosen due to their alignment with Rentco’s values.
“We also wanted to recognize those organizations in our community that share our company’s values,” he says. “All these organizations are valuable to the City of Grande Prairie, yet don’t get as much recognition as they should.”
According to Rentco, donations were presented officially at their three Grande Prairie locations and the three Rentco locations outside the city will be presented throughout the week.
