Hub City Volkswagen certainly got into the spirit of things on Pink Shirt Day … a day to raise awareness about bullying and how to prevent bullying.
First off, Hub City Volkswagen owner Richard and Sarah Schleich bought a $10 pink T-shirt for each staff member to wear today, Pink Shirt Day. The T-shirts are being distributed by Big Brothers and Big Sisters Prince George and the funds raise support its mentoring program.
Hub City Volkswagen then purchased candied pink apples at Rocky Mountain Chocolate for each staff member. Rocky Mountain Chocolate is donating 100 per cent of the the proceeds of all of their pink candied apples sold today to Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
And that wasn’t in. the Hub City Volkswagen staff were also treated to pink milkshakes from Carl’s Jr., where $1 from every shake is being donated to Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
“We’re hoping to help out Big Brothers and Big Sisters in three ways while also helping out two of our local businesses,” said Sarah Schleich. “Our corporate culture doesn’t stand for bullying and our family doesn’t stand for it so it only makes sense that we would support it outside these walls. It’s something we stand behind 100 per cent.”
