News Release: Fortis Inc. Provides COVID 19 funding for Murphy Centre

Today Fortis Inc. announced that the Murphy Centre will receive a gift of $20,000 to assist in the provision of enhanced technological capacity to participants. This gift will enable Murphy Centre participants to keep up with school requirements and career related tasks during the pandemic and beyond. The lack of portable devices and connectivity has caused significant concern and anxiety for participants and clients who rely on the Murphy Centre for Alternate schooling and Career Counselling Services. 

In commenting on the contribution Barry Perry, President and CEO, Fortis Inc. said, We are delighted to support the Murphy Centre and all organizations who are helping those most in need during the pandemic. Our corporation’s commitment to the community remains strong and we want to sincerely thank leaders in all community organizations for their incredible work at this challenging time.”

This year marks the first time in 33 years of service to the Northeast Avalon Region that the Murphy Centre has established a Development Office for the dual purpose of creating community awareness as well as providing both corporate and private donors with a mechanism of providing financial support.

While a new Murphy Centre website is under construction, please feel free contact Development Coordinators Derrick Moore ([email protected]) or Anthony Murphy ([email protected]) to learn how you can support the work of the Murphy Centre.
