There is a saying on how distance drives people apart, however on PEI, we can see this is not the case. Although a lot think that with social distancing for COVID, people will become more reserved with each other, however the Canadian Vietnamese Association on PEI has found a way to express our care to the local community in general and to the healthcare heroes in specific through our CSR(Corporate Social Responsibility) campaign called Happy Friday. Happy Friday is a chain of fundraising events that was warmly supported by the VietPEI’s members that result in a total of 7.553CAD of capital in order to support two of our projects:
- Contributing $4000 to “ Gift from The Heart”, a charity organization that provided free meals for the residents of PEI.
- Prepared and distributed 716 meals for the frontline workers at Queen Elizabeth hospital and Prince County Hospital, with the amazing support from the local Vietnamese owned restaurants and cafes.
The Management Board of The Canadian Vietnamese Association on PEI will now express our gratitude for the wonderful input of the seven restaurants listed below, because without you we couldn’t have been able to provide such marvelous dishes for our healthcare heroes in the battle against COVID.
- Pho Queen restaurant: 117 Queen Street, Charlottetown, PE C1A 4B3.
- The Son restaurant: 40 Queen Street, Charlottetown, PE C1A 4A3.
- Downtown Deli restaurant: 58 Grafton street, Charlottetown,PE C1A 1K7.
