Chatime Bubble Tea is continuing its efforts to support frontline workers.
In recognition of National Bubble Tea Day on April 30, Chatime Canada decided to bring a well-deserved smile (along with a needed pick-me-up) to courageous front-line workers who are facing the COVID-19 pandemic head-on at the various hospitals across the Lower Mainland.
Chatime Canada teamed up with local hospital foundations to support the nurses and doctors working that week; it donated more than 400 bubble teas, worth $2,500, to staff at Royal Columbian Hospital, Surrey Memorial Hospital, Vancouver General Hospital and Mount Saint Joseph Hospital.
“We at Chatime have been inspired by the tremendous local support and outreach we are seeing, and we sincerely hope that this can brighten the day of our front-line workers, and in turn inspire more businesses in our local community to also get involved,” Jaivin Khatri, Chatime’s director of B.Cs. operations, said in a news release.
According to the press release, Chatime is the largest teahouse franchise in the world with more than 2,500 locations in over 38 countries. In New Westminster, Chatime is located at 51 Sixth St.
