Southeastern New Brunswick companies want to cheer up those who need encouragement during these difficult times

SCOUDOUC, N.B. – Between now and June 30, Milco Warehousing and Logistics, Pallet Depot and Modu-Loc Fence Rentals Maritimes – all located in the Scoudouc Industrial Park near Moncton – are sponsoring a campaign called Encourage which will see individuals receive greeting cards containing an uplifting message.

Tyson Milner, owner of the three companies, says this corporate initiative is intended to brighten the day of people who could use some encouragement. “People need cheering up,” Mr. Milner says. “We’re all looking forward to spring, which is a time for longer days and smiles.”

The cards are intended for anyone who would appreciate a happy message, be they health-care workers, teachers, students, seniors, retail or restaurant workers, delivery drivers or anyone else, including family, friends and neighbours.

The message inside each card reads, “Someone who thinks very highly of you wanted us to send you this ray of sunshine to brighten your day! We hope it brings a smile to your face!” The cover of the card shows a smiling sun graphic accompanied by the words “Hi! Bonjour!” The cards will be printed in both official languages.

Each month during the campaign, three Encourage campaign recipients will win a gift card redeemable at a local business. Different businesses will be chosen monthly.

There is no cost to have a card sent. Any names and addresses collected during the campaign will not be used for any purpose other than sending the card and for any related monthly prize draws. No one will be contacted for any other purpose than to receive an Encourage greeting card or to be notified if they win a gift card. Recipients’ data will not be kept after the end of the campaign.

Cards will be forwarded to anywhere in Canada, however only residents of Southeastern New Brunswick are eligible for the gift card draws because these come from local companies. The first monthly draw will be for gift cards to Dolma Food located on St. George Street in Moncton.

Requests for cards may be sent via email to encourage@milco.ca. Requests must include the name and full mailing address of the person who will receive the card, including the postal code.

Des entreprises du Sud-est du Nouveau-Brunswick veulent remonter le moral de ceux qui ont besoin d’encouragement en ces temps difficiles

COMMUNIQUÉ DE PRESSE

Le 28 février 2022
Pour publication immédiate

Des entreprises du Sud-est du Nouveau-Brunswick veulent remonter le moral de ceux qui ont besoin d’encouragement en ces temps difficiles

SCOUDOUC, N.-B. – D’ici le 30 juin, Milco Warehousing and Logistics, Pallet Depot et Modu-Loc Fence Rentals Maritimes – toutes situées dans le Parc industriel de Scoudouc près de Moncton – parrainent une campagne appelée Encourage, qui permettra à des gens de recevoir des cartes de souhaits contenant un message réjouissant.

Tyson Milner, propriétaire des trois entreprises, dit que cette initiative d’entreprise est destinée à égayer la journée des personnes qui pourraient bénéficier d’encouragements. « Les gens ont besoin qu’on leur remonte le moral », de dire M. Milner. « Nous attendons tous le printemps, qui est le temps des journées plus longues et des sourires. »

Les cartes sont destinées à tous ceux qui apprécieraient un message joyeux, qu’il s’agisse de travailleurs de la santé, d’enseignants, d’étudiants, de personnes âgées, de travailleurs de la vente au détail ou de la restauration, de chauffeurs-livreurs ou de toute autre personne, y compris la famille, les amis et les voisins.

Le message à l’intérieur de chaque carte se lit : « Quelqu’un qui vous estime beaucoup désirait que nous vous envoyions ce rayon de soleil pour embellir votre journée! Nous espérons qu’il vous apportera un sourire! » La couverture de la carte montre un graphique de soleil souriant accompagné des mots : « Hi! Bonjour! » Les cartes seront imprimées dans les deux langues officielles.

Chaque mois pendant la campagne, trois bénéficiaires de la campagne Encourage gagneront une carte-cadeau échangeable dans une entreprise locale. Différentes entreprises seront choisies mensuellement.

Il n’y a pas de frais pour l’envoi d’une carte. Tous les noms et adresses recueillis pendant la campagne ne seront pas utilisés à d’autres fins que l’envoi de la carte et pour tout tirage au sort mensuel. Personne ne sera contactée à d’autres fins que de recevoir une carte de souhaits Encourage ou d’être avisée si elle gagne une carte-cadeau. Les données des destinataires ne seront pas conservées après la fin de la campagne.

Les cartes seront envoyées partout au Canada, toutefois seuls les résidents du Sud-est du Nouveau-Brunswick sont admissibles aux tirages de cartes-cadeaux parce qu’elles viennent d’entreprises locales. Le premier tirage mensuel sera pour des cartes-cadeaux à Dolma Food, situé sur la rue St. George à Moncton.

Les demandes de cartes peuvent être envoyées par courriel à encourage@milco.ca. Les demandes doivent inclure le nom et l’adresse postale complète de la personne qui recevra la carte, y compris le code postal.
