Restaurant steps up to help Rescue Squad

A check for $1,250 was donated to the Lloydminster Rescue Squad courtesy of Boston Pizza Lloydminster.
The money, which was raised through year long Boston Pizza fundraising initiatives, was a pleasant surprise for the Squad explained Norm Namur, chief of the Lloydminster Rescue Squad.
“We had no idea what to expect so we’re actually thrilled that we got the $1,250,” he said.
“We were planning … where our needs in the community were, where to purchase special equipment,” Namur said, which came to a list of five items.
“I think one of them was a boat motor for our Zodiac so I think that’s where we’re going to be putting our money, it’s going to be great,” he said.
Namur said it’s nice to see the community support, “and businesses like Boston Pizza to make this donation for us with all its partners, it’s a good feeling for us and that’s what keeps us going as a squad, the generosity of the community,” Namur said.
Marina Stephenson, owner/operator for Boston Pizza Lloydminster said the restaurant does a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the year and chooses to give to a certain charity.
“This year we chose to give to the Lloydminster and District Rescue Squad, we know that we count on them so every little bit that we can give back to them means something to us,” Stephenson said.
