Air for Olivia

November is known as Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month and it was brought to our attention that one of our employees has a daughter who is suffering with this disorder. Single mom Heather Janzen was planning fundraisers to raise much needed funds to assist with Olivia’s health expenses. Heather’s manager, Delaine Althouse, thought it was a great opportunity for Pineland Co-op to get involved and from that the “Friends of Olivia” group was founded.

The entire team of Pineland Co-op joined together to support many fundraisers. As a result Pineland Co-op General Manager Greg Schoonbaert was able to present Heather and Olivia with a cheque for more than $5,000. Olivia was thrilled to be presented with the proceeds and even more excited about her radio interview. We wish Olivia all the best in the future!
