Giving Tuesday 2023: Building Our Communities Through Charitable Giving
To mark Giving Tuesday, a day that encourages giving back to the nonprofit organizations that enrich and support our communities, we’d like to spotlight several of the charities we have been honoured to support and build meaningful relationships with over the years.
United Way Elgin Middlesex is one we have been proud to partner with for over two decades. With the valued support of our membership and signatory and industry partners, we have since donated a total of nearly $2 million from our annual charity golf tournaments. UW-EM is an organization central to the London and area community, and does so much critical work to support those living in poverty through their various programs and services, helping them to overcome challenges and thrive.
We’ve also partnered with United Way of Bruce Grey and United Way Perth-Huron over the past two years, both of which do incredible grassroots work serving vulnerable community members in our northern catchment areas. We were proud to support these two organizations in 2023 with a $12,000 donation (the total from our northern golf tournament) split evenly. We look forward to strengthening both relationships in the future.
Among several other organizations we’re proud to support through donations and Local 1059 staff volunteer opportunities are London Food Bank (we are currently accepting non-perishable food donations at the bin located in our front lobby until Dec. 19th), London Abused Women’s Centre, The TLC Foundation, LifeSpin, The Imagine Build, Old East Village Cares, Humane Society London & Middlesex and London Children’s Museum
A sincere thank you to each of these organizations, and the many others we’ve been fortunate to work with, for the life-affirming work they do to ensure those in need don’t fall through the cracks. Charitable organizations are truly the beating heart of any community and it’s our honour to work with each of you to build stronger, better communities!
If you are in a position to donate to any of these outstanding organizations, we encourage you to do so. Please visit any of the respective organization’s websites for links to donate.
