Skyline Participates in 5th Annual “Month of Giving”
[Guelph, ON – November 29, 2019]
Once again, Skyline staff rallied to show their giving spirit throughout the month of November. For the fifth year in a row, staff volunteered all month long in a series of community initiatives.
Below are just some of the ways in which the Skyline team came together to make their “Month of Giving” the biggest one yet:
- Employees at Skyline’s Head Office and Fountain Street office in Guelph, ON (over 200 staff total) made 50 visits to local schools across the Guelph-Wellington region to prepare and serve healthy snacks to hungry kids. This initiative is facilitated through the Food and Friends nutrition program organized by the Children’s Foundation of Guelph & Wellington. Skyline was proud to provide year-round funding in 2019 for the program at 7 local schools.
- Staff at Skyline’s Ottawa, ON office are also volunteering at an Ottawa-based school nutrition program, serving healthy snacks to put smiles on the faces of hungry school kids.
- Skyline has adopted 20 families in need for the holiday season (72 moms, dads, kids, and grandparents) through Adopt-a-Family, a gift-giving program organized by the Children’s Foundation of Guelph & Wellington. Staff are bringing in holiday gifts, warm winter clothes, grocery gift cards, and all other items these deserving families need to make their holiday season special.
- Skyline’s Legal and Finance teams both headed to the Adopt-a-Family “Santa’s Workshop” for a day of wrapping gifts for the local families adopted through the program.
Skyline’s Month of Giving is an annual initiative for Giving Tuesday, which falls on December 3rd this year. Held on the Tuesday after the commerce-driven days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a globally-recognized initiative that celebrates the philanthropic and charitable aspects of the holiday season.
Skyline participates in Giving Tuesday through local chapter Guelph Gives.
