Recruitment Partners Inc. is participating in two fundraising events this holiday season! Our recruiters love the holiday spirit of giving, that’s why both offices are raising funds for their organization of choice! Our Edmonton and Calgary offices have both chosen a charitable organization to raise money for that is near and dear to our recruiters’ hearts! Both organizations are fantastic causes, and all of us at Recruitment Partners Inc. hope you will consider donating to either (or both!) of these causes!
The Edmonton Recruitment Partners office is raising money for Operation Friendship Seniors Society. This organization works to improve the quality of life for seniors in the Edmonton inner city. They provide safe and affordable housing for seniors that is non-institutional. Some of the services provided by Operation Friendship include Helping Hands, Outreach, Housing Facilities, Recreation, and Drop In. Helping hands has workers accompany seniors on shopping trips, taking them to appointments, and providing friendly companionship. The outreach program reaches out to seniors and has workers act as companions and advocates. Operation Friendship’s housing facilities provides an entry point for seniors wanting to live in an OFSS facility to provide appropriate housing, and the recreation program provides free and safe activities from fun and fitness to entertainment to games.
The Drop In centre is the program Recruitment Partners is raising money for. The McCauley Senior’s Drop-In Centre is a safe gathering place for seniors to socialize and be a part of the community. It provides healthy meals everyday and has many wellness activities. The Drop In centre provides necessities like winter books, mittens, clothing, and new underwear. We’re raising money for these needs as the Drop In centre has experienced a great need for new underwear, so we’ve created our ‘Underwearness’ campaign to raise money for some of Edmonton’s most vulnerable individuals.
The Calgary Recruitment Partners office is raising money for The Children’s Cottage Society. This organization provides incredibly important services to families and children in need in the Calgary area. Not only do they have parenting pointers and great resources to help children grow into strong and resilient individuals, they also provide a number of services. The Crisis Nursery provides up to 72 hours of childcare for young children where parents are struggling and need help. Brenda’s House offers a safe, emergency shelter for families of children experiencing homelessness. The Community Respite program has workers come to families’ homes to help them with their infants if they are deeply struggling, and the Early Years Family Support program provides in-home support and education for new parents. The Children’s Cottage Society also offers housing programs to help families experiencing homelessness get back on their feet.
Recruitment Partners is raising funds for this worthy cause to help vulnerable families in Calgary.
Recruitment Partners Inc. seeks to be involved in the community, and the holiday season is a great time to remember that we need to take care of each other. If you would like to donate to one of these important causes, we will be incredibly grateful!
