Affordable housing society receives cleaning kits through charity

Nanaimo Telus Ambassadors and Home Hardware partner on initiative

New tenants moving into Nanaimo Affordable Housing Society complexes won’t have to worry about rushing out to buy cleaning supplies.

Nanaimo Telus Ambassadors are donating starter cleaning kits to the housing society to hand to new tenants who need basic house-cleaning items when they move in.

The kits include cleaning products, pots and pans, a laundry basket and other items, which are provided at cost to Telus Ambassadors – retired Telus employees who raise donations for local charities – by Home Hardware.
