FirstService Residential: Las Vegas Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus

The Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus Tours program was created in 2008 in loving memory of a remarkable little girl named Cheyenne. She loved visiting the Magical Forest, sharing laughter and hugs with her friends, and connecting with the wonderful people with intellectual disabilities Opportunity Village serves.

Opportunity Village is happy to know that Cheyenne will forever watch over the Magical Forest and the very special children who visit. Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus Tours provides a Magical Forest field trip experience to first grade students from Clark County School District’s most at-risk Title I schools. While youngsters are given the chance to frolic in the excitement of the holiday season, lessons of inclusiveness, acceptance and disability awareness are also incorporated into the day of fun – making it a most merry and meaningful visit to Opportunity Village and the Magical Forest. Through interactions with the wonderful people Opportunity Village serves, classmates and teachers alike, we remind kids how simple it is to Just Be Nice!

FirstService Residential: Silo Point – Service Day

2019 is the first year FirstService Residential is holding a region-wide “Service Day” – making an impact on the lives of our local communities. Silo Point has partnered with local companies to support the Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore City. Through these efforts, we have reached out to multiple business partners to ask for their assistance in this charitable effort. Some of the partners that have committed their time, effort or monetary support include, but are not limited to; Brightview Landscaping, Certapro Painters, Planned Companies and Heartline Fitness. They will be offering their services to clean up the school’s grounds, paint a monument in desperate need of a refresh, clean the school’s interior and donate fitness equipment. The nearly 40 vendors that have made commitments to the cause will also be gathering school supplies, making cash contributions or volunteering their time to help with the various projects. We continue to seek additional partners, donations and commitments and encourage you to help in any way possible. School supplies can be donated and dropped off at Silo Point’s front desk. Please reach out if you have questions or would like to help support the Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School.

FirstService Corporation: Donating Life Saving Blood in Honor of a Special Child

FirstService employees donated blood in honor of six-year-old Ella

Employees from FirstService Corporation’s Toronto headquarters joined together in a month-long drive to donate blood in honor of a special little girl.  Ella was born with a serious heart defect called “Transposition of the Great Arteries.” In her first six years of life, Ella has endured more than many do in an entire lifetime, including nine heart surgeries, being placed on an artificial heart and lung machine for four days, and receiving well over 50 units of blood. Thanks to donors who have generously donated their own blood, Ella has celebrated birthdays, Christmases and will be starting Grade 1 in the fall.

Honoring Ella

FirstService donated blood under “Team Ella” which was started by Ella’s parents as a way to give back to the organizations that have helped Ella. While their original goal was to collect 50 units of blood in Ella’s name to “put back into the system” what Ella had used, they have far surpassed this goal and continue to encourage blood donation.

As Ella’s mom says, no one ever expects that they, or someone the love, will need blood someday. But if you do, you absolutely better have it when you need it, where you need it, and the right type.

Thanks to the contributions of the FirstService team, Team Ella’s monthly blood donations increased by 50% for the month of July.

How You Can Help

The need for blood is great throughout North America, and we encourage you to consider donating through Canadian Blood Services or American Red Cross Blood Services.

If you wish to support Team Ella, please follow these steps:

  1. Visit https://blood.ca/en/ways-donate/donate-partner/becoming-partner/team-member-registration

  2. In the “Partner ID” box, type “TEAM368169”

  3. Put in the rest of your personal information as requested

  4. Click Submit
