The founder of T&T Supermarket, the largest Canadian-Asian grocery retailer, Cindy Lee is grateful to the community that has played a large part in her own personal achievements. Holding a deep rooted connection to the city of Richmond, Mrs. Lee has seen the impact COVID-19 has had in BC and around the world. Mrs. Lee knew she had to help and immediately connected with Richmond Hospital Foundation, donating $80,000 towards ventilators.

“I believe that human life is priceless. During this difficult time everyone should work together to contribute to their community in whatever way they can,” says Mrs. Lee. “From helping your neighbour to donating to the local hospital, we can overcome this crisis together.”

Mrs. Lee has demonstrated her philanthropic leadership personally and professionally. T&T Supermarket has been a leader in the business community, donating one million surgical masks which are being distributed to those most in need and supporting high quality, lifesaving care in the community.

“We are grateful for the generous $80,000 donation Mrs. Cindy Lee has committed towards ventilators in support of Richmond Hospital Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund,” says Natalie Meixner, President and CEO, Richmond Hospital Foundation. “Her donation will have a life changing impact and will inspire others in our community to come together and make a difference during this challenging time.”
