At iNFOTEL MULTIMEDIA, we hold great admiration for the extraordinary efforts of charities spanning from Kamloops to Osoyoos, especially in these difficult times when the vulnerable among us are most in need.

In January, our initiative aimed at bolstering charitable efforts allowed us to offer more than $17,000 in sponsorships for digital banners on www.iNFONews.ca. It's our privilege to share insights into the remarkable impact these organizations make through their acts of kindness, generous support, and the promise of positive change they bring to communities.
