There are many worthwhile charities for companies to partner
with. Yet there are very few that offer a local and personnel connection like
Make-A-Wish Canada. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a charity in Canada whose
grants wishes to critically ill children each year. The amazing work they do
changes the lives of these children and their families for the better! This
dedication to children and community aligns directly with the core values the
Northern Strands Group of Companies holds. We have committed to grant the wish
of one child each year for the past several years and everyone chips in to make
this a reality. Our teams take this commitment to heart, and we work throughout
the year make this donation possible each year.
With fundraising events not possible this year, our team
became creative in their fundraising efforts. Our staff rose to the challenge this
year and we collected recycling from all locations to send to SARCAN as well as
having a silent auction with donation items from companies we work with.
This last year we
sponsored a 7 year old girl named Alexis. She loves swimming, Lego and animals.
Her wish was to have a puppy! Through our donations and fundraising this year
we have been able to grant this wish for Alexis. She welcomed home a Cocker
Spaniel puppy this year.
