To aid in COVID-19 patient care, a Sudbury-headquartered construction supply company is matching donations to four regional hospitals for up to $100,000.

On April 30, OCP Construction Supplies, owned and operated by the Cousineau family, announced it would match donations of up to $25,000 to each of the regional hospitals in Sudbury, Timmins, North Bay, and Sault Ste. Marie.

The company has offices in each of those major urban centres, employing 60 people across divisions.

Any money raised will go toward the purchase of equipment and patient care on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are proud to live and work in northeastern Ontario,” OCP founder and president Richard Cousineau said in a statement.

“During this unprecedented time, we need to come together to make a difference. We strongly support the hard work and dedication of our health-care workers and we want to express our gratitude as much as possible. 

“We are so thankful for the health-care teams across northeastern Ontario who are working tirelessly around the clock. You are our heroes.”

Established in 1974, OCP Construction Supplies is a distributor for a variety of construction supplies, including concrete repair products, caulks and sealants, metal building insulation, and more.

Its sister company, OCP Concrete Pumping, provides concrete for industrial, commercial, institutional, residential, agricultural, hydro, and remote projects.
