Giving Tuesday Recap

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill

For those of you who missed it, last Tuesday, December 2nd was Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to supporting charities, non profits, and communities, not only in Canada, but around the globe. Everyone was encouraged to participate in whatever way they could, whether as an individual, an organization, or a large company. In keeping with the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we decided to pick a few organizations, community members, and employers, and surprise them with Tim Horton’s coffee and Timbits. By the end of the day, we had visited five different places that we wished to recognize.

Our first stop was at our local fire station, Station #7. We wanted to say thank you to the fire fighters at this location, as for the past few years they have come to our Annual Community Pancake Breakfast, along with one of their fire trucks. They’ve even been known to flip some pancakes!

The second stop of the day was at Northlands, which is just across the road from us. We wanted to thank them for their continuous support in donating to our Annual Community Pancake Breakfast!

Stop number three was at Sunlife Financial, just off the Whitemud. After getting lost a few times, we finally found the correct office, where we could deliver our treats! We wanted to also acknowledge Sunlife for donating to our Annual Community Pancake Breakfast. Although our main point of contact was not in the office, we did get to leave the treats for the rest of the staff!

The fourth stop on our coffee and Timbits list was at The Canadian Native Friendship Centre. We wanted to thank them for all the good work that they do in the community

Last but not least, we stopped by Sol Thermal, a company which is one of our Star Employers. The workers inside were pretty excited when they saw us walk through the warehouse with coffee and Timbits, and even more pumped when they found out it was for them!

We can’t wait until next year!
