UBC students Frank Jia (Engineering Physics), Isabella Funa (Kinesiology), Mikey Jose (Sciences), and Tricia Jose (Sciences) create initiative to connect mission-aligned businesses (who can provide their products for free or by discount) with BC healthcare facilities in need during the COVID-19 pandemic: Supply the Frontlines.
Frank Jia: “By doing this, we hope to provide some financial relief for local businesses in the lower mainland, while simultaneously providing resources for healthcare facilities.
We have helped the following facilities with these donations:
- Surrey Memorial Hospital
- Lions Gate Hospital
- Richmond General Hospital
- Royal Columbia Hospital
- Whitecliff Retirement Residence
- BC Children’s and BC Women’s Hospitals
We are continuously trying to raise funds to purchase discounted products from small, local businesses in the lower mainland through our GoFundMe campain.”
