Raising Funds to Raise Awareness

Every year, in the spirit of giving, we come together to raise money for causes near and dear to our hearts. This year, our efforts were focused on improving the lives of First Peoples and continuing the conversation around Canada’s grim history with residential schools. This year was for The Downie Wenjack Fund. Each department came up with a separate fundraiser and collectively we raised $3,700 for the cause. Together we played a part in helping fuel reconciliation, keeping Chanie Wenjack’s story burning bright. Thanks for lighting the match, Gord.
