“In recent weeks our front line health care staff have devoted themselves to preparing to care for COVID-19 patients. They are also ensuring that people can continue to access care to meet their urgent medical needs,” stated Angela Chapman, President and CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation in a press release.​ “For years, lottery funds have helped ensure that medical teams in B.C. have the tools and equipment they need to save lives​. On behalf of the Foundation, I’d like to thank everyone who supports the Hometown Heroes Lottery, allowing our health care heroes to be here for us.”

“Your support of the Hometown Heroes Lottery has never been more important. Our fire fighter hometown heroes are working so hard to keep their communities safe, while healthcare heroes are in hospitals saving lives. Not every hero wears a cape. Some wear turnout gear and others wear stethoscopes,” stated Sheila Kern, Executive Director of the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund in a press release.
