If you see someone like Kelowna-Lake Country MP Stephen Fuhr or Kelowna Coun. Maxine DeHart behind the counter at a Mac’s or Circle K convenience store this week, don’t be surprised.
They and other community leaders across the country are taking part in a National Convenience Week campaign to raise money for the Children’s Wish organization.
The goal of National Convenience Week is to grant wishes to 10 children with life-threatening illnesses.
“National Convenience Week is an opportunity for community leaders to have fun and volunteer at their local convenience store to greet customers, pump gas, learn a little about small, community retail business, and assist in raising funds for Children’s Wish,” said Anne Kothawala, president of the Convenience Industry Council of Canada, in a news release.
