Alain Mayer takes the time to say thank you. The general manager of Midland’s Canadian Tire earns a living in the community and gives back by donating his time, he said.
“The reason it’s important for me to get involved is because those are the customers coming and making this town lively,” Mayer said.
Mayer is a member of Knights of Columbus Penetanguishene, North Simcoe Community Future Development Corporation in Midland, and he is on the committee of St. Croix Catholic Church in Lafontaine.
He is a past member of Chigamik Community Health Centre in Midland.
In 2016, Canadian Tire Midland’s Jumpstart program raised enough money in the community to donate 300 bicycles and helmets to youth in need in Midland and Tay Township.
