A Kelowna business owner performed an act of kindness for 12-year-old boy who was the victim of a theft at a bowling alley last week.
Catherine Pynappels, the owner of Kelowna Cell Repair, kindly offered to repaired an iPad that had been damaged in a thef for the family at no cost. The message was shared with the family and the iPad has since been fixed.
“The family was very happy we did this but they were concerned there were other issues with the iPad, but luckily there was not,” said Pynappels of Kelowna Cell Repair. “We were happy to help, as these repairs can be pricey. We did not feel that it was fair to the family to have to pay that after the theft.”
Pynappels said she has children and empathized with the young crime victim.
“It’s heartwarming to see such an amazing act of kindness from the community,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey. “The Kelowna RCMP would like to extend a big thanks to Kelowna Cell Repair and to the media for doing their part to make this good news story happen.”
