Appleby Coillege, a private school located in Oakville Ontario, pooled rsources from several firms to help sponsor a Syrian refugee family to Canada. Appleby arranged an apartment and furnishings to the new comers to Canada.
At the last minute they realized they had now way of moving the furniture into the 3 bedroom apartment even though they were scheduled to arrive in 3 days!
I am glad they called us. We sent our crew out to get this done and of course did so at no charge. We felt this is exactly the sort of initiative we want to be part of.
We have found the goodwill it creates with our community and within our staff offers real value to our firm. Even small business' like ours can be active and help in important ways.
