What an incredible way to start the Thanksgiving Weekend!

Our in house staff campaign for United Way wrapped up today with an astounding achievement of $37,132! We had set a goal of $33,000 with a 100% participation rate.  What we accomplished as a small staff team of 39 employees far exceeded that!

Precarious Employment in Peel Region

It's a beautiful photograph. A silhouette of a window framed by soft curtains. It reminds me of a picture I saw in a home design magazine. But sadly it is a photograph that has a much deeper, sadder story to tell. It is part of an exhibit at the Peel Art Gallery, Museum & Archives (PAMA) that has several more such photographs.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Hershey!

Happy Birthday, Mr. Hershey!

Milton Hershey grew up as a farm boy in the 1800s and never had the chance to get much in the way of a formal education. However, as his company, The Hershey Chocolate Company prospered, he made it a priority to provide others with that opportunity and used profits to operate a school for orphaned boys.

His legacy of philanthropy continues as Hershey Canada honoured his birthday by kicking off their United Way campaign.
