Regal ideas Inc., the manufacturer of aluminum railing systems, has sourced and donated 100 microwaves to the Atira Women’s Resource Society in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Atira Women’s Resource Society is dedicated to supporting women and children affected by violence by offering safe and supportive housing by delivering education and advocacy aimed at ending all forms of gendered violence.

“I wish everyone could have seen the relief and peace on women’s faces when we delivered new microwaves that will enable them to heat food in their rooms and gives them the choice to stay home and self-isolate, a choice most of us take for granted,” said Janice Abbott, CEO of the Atira Women’s Resource Society. “Thank you Regal ideas for giving us and the women we support 100 bright moments.”

On hand for the deliveries was 9-year old Feed The Fight ambassador, Mason Sekura. A video tribute from Sekura can be viewed here.

Regal ideas also announced the official launch of Feed The Fight Canada and Feed The Fight USA, an initiative to provide meals, personal protective equipment and other necessities to front-line workers and those impacted by COVID-19.

The innovative campaign also supports local restaurants and businesses who are feeling the crunch during this difficult time by sourcing meals and products. Donations to the campaign can be made by visiting feedthefightcanada.com or feedthefightUSA.com, which are managed on the GoFundMe platform.

The long-term goal is to sustain this initiative past the pandemic.

“It is an honor for us to be able to help communities on both sides of the border. Everyone has the right to be safe and live a healthy life,” said Andrew Pantelides, vice president of marketing for Regal ideas. “We can all help, a little goes a long way in bettering the lives of many.

Plans are in motion for campaigns starting next week at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Wash. and Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario.
