Bell Aliant Pioneer volunteers recently made a $35,000 donation to the Lions Max Simms Camp, located in central Newfoundland. The funds are to be used to upgrade the safety and security systems in the camp. This modern camp, which opened its doors in 1981, is designed to provide challenged individuals with an accessible, enriching and rewarding camping experience. For the past 24 years, members of the Bell Aliant Pioneers have made an annual trip to the Max Simms Camp, donating more than $2 million in labour, in-kind services and monetary donations for maintenance and upgrades to this facility.
