Delta Spring and Chassis customers and staff recently raised money for breast cancer sufferers through the company's annual customer appreciation day.
BRESLAU, Ont. — Delta Spring and Chassis hosted a customer appreciation day recently, despite suffering a fire a week earlier that temporarily shut down its repair bays.
The fire was contained and nobody was hurt, but the seven-bay facility suffered extensive smoke damage, the company said. It remains open, however, and customers are still being served as repairs are made. The company plans to be back at full capacity by the beginning of September.
Despite the setback, the customer appreciation day went ahead as scheduled and this year it focused on breast cancer awareness. Two pink trucks were displayed, courtesy of CBM and Tri City Materials, as well as several other antique trucks.
“In past years, we’ve appreciated our customers and this year we wanted to pay special tribute to customers who have given back to their community. When the fire occurred, we just couldn’t close the doors on such an important event,” said Herb Preikschas, account manager at Delta.
Donations collected during the event were presented to the Waterloo-Wellington Breast Cancer Centre of Grand River Hospital.
