California Closets: Northern New Jersey Volunteers for Habitat for Humanity Build Day

On April 29, 2019, California Closets of Northern New Jersey (CC NNJ) will spend the day volunteering for their local Habitat for Humanity.

Linda McHale, a Design Consultant with CC NNJ, became interested in this when she met some of the Habitat for Humanity folks at a networking event.  She knew that CC NNJ “could significantly contribute to the build site, given the high skill level of some of our employees, and the passion of others to give back to our community.”   Linda approached the owner, Julie LaFranco, and she was not only willing to devote a volunteer day from our team, but also donated several closets to the home.  Linda says “I am grateful to work for CC and FirstService Brands, whose philosophy of giving back to the community resonates with my own values.  Be part of the solution!”

California Closets Northern New Jersey expects to bring the maximum number of employees (15) to participate in this event. Given the skill level of some of their volunteers, they expect to make a significant contribution that day, while also bonding as a team.

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.
