FirstService Residential: Join Us and Donate Blood During Our Dania Beach Office Blood Drive

Did you know: 38% of the population can donate blood—of that, less than 10% actually do. Blood cannot be manufactured. It can only come from generous blood donors. If every donor gave just one more time each year, there would be no more blood shortages. All donors will receive a OneBlood long sleeve t-shirt and a wellness checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening! Make an appointment online at www.oneblooddonor.org and use sponsor code #41831. The Oneblood bus will be parked north side of the 1855 building from 9 am to 3 pm.  For more information, please contact diana.sanchez@fsresidential.com.

FirstService: Providing needed funds to ensure students receive healthy meals

At FirstService’s Toronto office, the Social Responsibility Committee is always looking for ways the team can positively impact its community. Child poverty is a growing problem, and many children do not receive adequate nutrition as a result.  Through a series of “Breakfast Club” fundraisers, the team raised $1,960 to fund Student Nutrition Programs in the Toronto area.  For every $100 raised, 70 children will receive a hot and healthy breakfast. 100% of the donations collected by the team went directly into these programs.
“Food security is something many of us take for granted. For kids, having access to nutritious meals affects their ability to focus and learn in school,” said Erica Foster, senior manager, accounting and part of FirstService’s Social Responsibility Committee. “Toronto Foundation for Student Success’ mission to help students succeed by providing meals is something that resonated to many of us and we wanted to do our part to help ensure no child in Toronto begins the school day hungry.
