The 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb honors and remembers the New York City firefighters, police officers and emergency workers who made the ultimate sacrifice that fateful day.
Climb the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center to benefit the FDNY CSU, help defray the cost of sending FDNY family members to Memorial Weekend and help fund the programs provided by the NFFF to support the families of our nation’s fallen firefighters.
We urge you to get involved in this meaningful cause – become a sponsor, form a team, climb the stairs, or make a donation. Visit events.firehero.org/georgia to learn more about how you can be part of the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb.

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

Donation drives are a popular and effective way to collect much-needed food for area food banks, but if you really want to engage your team members and make your food drive something everyone will be talking about, give them an added challenge to see what can be built with the donated items. That’s exactly what the creative Social Purpose Champions at Paul Davis did, and the results were incredible!
As you’ll see from the pictures in this post, team members took the challenge seriously and unleashed their creativity building fabulous structures out of donated canned goods. Photos of the structures were shared with the Paul Davis network and prizes were awarded for the locations with the Most Votes and the Most Cans.
In addition to highly coveted bragging rights, the LLCO Animal House structure won in the Most Cans category with 1,188 cans, and Hunger Bites won Most Votes. Some offices took the challenge even further by incorporating other fun team building events including company BBQs and bowling outings. Collectively the challenge netted more than 3,100 cans of food!
“Words cannot express my gratitude, respect, and appreciation to everyone involved in this event,” said Quality Assurance Analyst Waleska Gonzalez. “Helping others when they need it the most is a cause I keep close to my heart and I am always looking for an opportunity to create awareness. I was happy to see the passion and commitment from my PD family.”

When Shannon purchased a Floor Coverings International franchise in 2017, he and his family were excited about what the future held for them. Being an entrepreneur has many advantages, and having the opportunity to be part of FirstService Brands, with its track record of success and alignment to his personal values, appealed to him.
Little did he know that less than two years later, his life would be forever changed.
This past March, at just 47 years of age, and in good health, Shannon suffered a massive heart attack. His is what is known as a “widow maker” heart attack, and, as its name implies, they are often fatal. With no known risk factors, his doctor chalked it up to bad luck. Shannon, however, sees it differently. With just a 5% chance of survival, and having been clinically dead before doctors brought him back to life, Shannon considers himself lucky to be alive.
His recovery forced him out of work for three months, during which time bills associated with his business and household expenses and medical treatments began to pile up. This created additional stress for him and his family during what was already an extremely difficult time.
Fortunately, Shannon applied for and received a grant through the FirstService Relief Fund. The funds he received bridged the gap during the time he was unable to work and allowed him to stay current on his day-to-day expenses.
Today, Shannon is feeling great. He has committed to taking better care of himself, making better food choices and exercising regularly. He’s grateful he was able to see his son graduate high school earlier this summer and dreams of the day he will walk his daughter down the aisle.
“I’m so appreciative of my colleagues who contributed to the Relief Fund and made my grant possible,” said Shannon. “I never imagined I’d be in a situation where I needed help, and feel very lucky to work for a company that cares so much about its people. If you are able to contribute to the Relief Fund, you are truly making a difference in someone’s life. If you have a need for support or know someone who does, please look into applying for a Relief Fund grant.”
We thank Shannon for sharing his story in the hopes it will inspire others to become involved in the FirstService Relief Fund. For more information please visit http://www.firstservicerelief.com.
