June 2024 Spotlight

Summer of Service is upon us, and longer days mean more time to give back. Wherever your passion lies, you can be certain there is a way to channel your time and energy into making a difference in your community. In this issue of Spotlight, we provide a peek at what your colleagues at TLS and FirstService Residential have planned so far, and also give you ideas of how to find sustainability and sports-related volunteer opportunities in your area. We also have lots of ideas to get your kids involved too!
