Universal’s HHTH Employee Fundraising Thermometer.
Our corporate wide adherence to family values includes an unending commitment to giving back that peaks during the holiday season.
Despite the challenging times we currently live in, we were able to once again this year hold a highly successful fundraiser for Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHTH), a Canadian charity that organizes and runs fantasy hockey tournaments across the country, and raises money to help fund the work of over 40 homeless support agencies. The funds raised by Universal benefit 360Kids (www.360kids.ca) and Blue Door Shelters (www.bluedoor.ca), two local organizations committed to ending homelessness
In October and November, the Universal employee group rallied together to raise an incredible $14,060. Together with the company’s funds matching program and participation as sponsor for HHTH’s upcoming York Region event, a total contribution exceeding $44,000 was made by the Universal group.
Even more giving took place in December as our employees were enthusiastic supporters of two other charities we support annually: the Vaughan Food Bank and the Toy Mountain gift drive. “It is a great feeling knowing that the bags and bags of food and gifts contributed by our employees will bring joy this holiday season to those who are less fortunate,” said Mark Glionna, Vice President – Client Relations & Business Development.
