TELUS Fibre for Good

For every new Optik TV subscriber on the Fibre Optic Network in Cranbrook, TELUS will donate $25 to a local participating charity.

The Cranbrook and District Community Foundation (CDCF) is very excited to be included as one of the non-profits in the TELUS Fibre for Good program.

“It’s fabulous when you see organizations stepping up and thinking about ways to incorporate philanthropy into everyday business,” says Riley Wilcox, executive director of the CDCF. “We are very excited to be part of this initiative, and are in good company with the Blue Lake Forest Education Society, the Boys & Girls Club, Cranbrook Food Bank Society and the Cranbrook Public Library.”

If you’ve already signed up for Optik TV in Cranbrook, watch for an email in the coming weeks inviting you to vote for a non-profit organization in your community to receive the donation.
