Leading Tech Repair Brand uBreakiFix Partners With IWK Foundation to Help Fund Care of Maritime Women and Children

Halifax-Area uBreakiFix Stores Donate Sales Percentage in Ongoing Giveback Initiative

HALIFAX, NS--(Marketwired - May 29, 2017) - Beginning June 3, uBreakiFix tech repair stores in Bedford and Dartmouth will donate 10 percent of Saturday sales year round to the IWK Foundation. The partnership will extend to future Maritime locations as uBreakiFix continues to grow throughout the region.

"At uBreakiFix, we strive to make a difference in all of the communities we call home," said Michael Mailman, President of uBreakiFix stores in Bedford and Dartmouth. "The IWK provides specialized care to patients and families throughout the region, and we're thrilled to align our Maritime uBreakiFix stores with such a worthy cause."

The start date for the uBreakiFix giveback initiative coincides with the 33rd annual IWK Telethon, which airs Saturday, June 3 from 7 to 11 p.m. and Sunday, June 4 from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on CTV Atlantic. Mailman is excited work the phones at the Telethon from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

"I'm humbled by the opportunity to participate in this year's IWK Telethon," Mailman said. "Our team is committed to IWK's success, and we want to give our time and energy alongside our financial support, in order to be the best possible partner for this organization."

"We are so pleased to be partnering with uBreakiFix on this campaign," said Liz LeClair, IWK's Senior Manager for Community and Corporate Giving. "Every time customers use uBreakiFix services on IWK Days they can have confidence in knowing they are making an impact on the care provided at the IWK."

In August 2016, Orlando-based tech repair enterprise uBreakiFix announced an expansion deal with investment group UBIFNorth to more than double its Canadian footprint with 22 stores in 24 months. uBreakiFix Dartmouth and uBreakiFix Bedford are the first of five Maritime locations included within the deal. Over the next year, UBIFNorth plans to roll out locations in Moncton, Charlottetown and St. John's, all of which will participate in the standing IWK Foundation partnership.
