Building A Stronger Community
February 01, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsTORONTO , ON–Along with delivering exceptional furnished rentals in Toronto, DelSuites is also committed to supporting the local community. With an employee initiative, where staff will be encouraged to give one day to various organizations in their community, the spirit of giving is one that extends beyond the holiday season; a time of year that is typically associated with charitable initiatives. Along with a number of charitable initiatives, this past year DelSuites continued their ongoing support of the Daily Bread Food Bank and Furniture Bank; two local organizations that are committed to providing those in need with a well-stocked pantry and furnished home, respectively.
Building on a long-standing relationship with the Daily Bread Food Bank, together with their parent company, Tridel, DelSuites coordinated the arrangement of food bins that were situated in prominent locations throughout Tridel's offices. In an effort to encourage donations, weekly notifications about the food drive were distributed to staff, while the option of dress-down Fridays was made available to staff who donated as an added incentive. Through a collaborative effort, the team at Tridel and DelSuites were able to donate more than 500 pounds of non-perishable item to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Contributions that will go a long way towards supporting individual food banks and local meal programs including children's breakfast initiatives.
While guests' will take comfort in DelSuites' upgraded furnished suites in Toronto, the company's donations of gently used furnishings including tables, beds and sofas will have an even greater impact on the lives of families and individuals who access the Furniture Bank. By donating the contents of two two-bedroom furnished apartments, DelSuites continues to help individuals and families rebuild their lives within the community.
Although the holiday season may be a distant memory, through the employee program, DelSuites will continue to foster an environment that builds and strengthens the community in which we live, work and play.
