CIBC Days of Caring at Deltassist
On July 6th, employees from CIBC Business Controls including Karen Andres, Martin Eldridge, Gwen Harper, Ruth Inglis, Yvonne Kerman, Linda Mann, Reena Matharu, Jason Schnell, Nilesh Shah and Katherine Slipec along with UW Loaned rep alumni Ashley Ho, from Retail Distribution sorted over 300 boxes of toys into child age and gender categories for children in need.
On this day of caring, our team got a chance to help organize toys that will help children have a better Christmas. Every year Deltassist provides toys to low income families with children that are 16 years old and younger. A Toy Depot is set up that allows families to select new toys for their children and make Christmas a wonderful event.
Our team members all agreed that this was an extremely meaningful experience for them, and that it was both rewarding and eye-opening. We have been invited back to assist with the Christmas Program later this year.
Thank you very much to all of our volunteers and the UW Rep, Alison Gray, who took the time from their busy schedules to make this volunteering event happen!
