Donation big help to program

Whirlpool Canada providing 39 appliances for Kwantlen Polytechnic University program

Whirlpool Canada donated 39 high-end appliances to Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s (KPU) Appliance Service Technician Program earlier this month.

Sent from Ontario, the refrigerators, stoves, cooktops and microwaves will facilitate training and hands-on learning in the Cloverdale-based program, which is unique to both British Columbia and Canada.

“Donations such as the current generous one from Whirlpool Canada are crucial to the ongoing Appliance Service Technology Program at KPU,” said program instructor Tom Westgate.

“Whirlpool Canada’s ongoing support of the program allows us to keep up.”
