Clow Canada held their annual sales meeting in Saint John, New Brunswick the week of January 22. A regular agenda item for these meetings is a charity event that doubles as a team building experience. This year was no exception. The sales team volunteered to make sandwiches at the Romero House to put in children’s lunch bags for the following school day. The Romero House is a soup kitchen that was founded in Saint John in 1982 that serves free meals and provides food hampers and housewares to those in need 365 days a year, including Christmas day.
In lieu of a dinner out that evening, the day was topped off by the team presenting the money they would have spent going out to dinner at a restaurant as a donation to the Romero House. Take out food that night never tasted better!
The Clow Canada Sales team had a great time and came away knowing they had made a difference for those in need in the Saint John community.
In the spirit of the holiday season, AB&I partnered with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland to donate gifts to the children spending Christmas in the hospital. Team members were encouraged to bring new, unwrapped gifts to the HR department and the response was overwhelmingly generous. It was truly an honor to help make a difference in a child’s life during the holiday season.
The Manchester Tank Elkhart team continued a 10-year tradition of participating in the annual Salvation Army Adopt-a-Family program. With donations from Manchester/McWane, as well as their management team, they were able to make Christmas a little bit brighter for families in need.
This program is designed to assist families who are in crisis as the result of unemployment, homelessness, medical issues, or other difficult circumstances, and who otherwise would not have the resources to celebrate Christmas. Families who are adopted are provided with food, clothing, and gifts from sponsors.
Manchester Tank would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
We are pleased to announce that McWane Ductile Utah (MDU) raised $16,000 from their charity golf tournament!
This enabled them to donate $4,000 to The Boys & Girls Club, the Utah Food Bank, the South County Animal Shelter and The Dream Factory. MDU team members presented checks to these charities on December 5, 2017.
This week, Clow Canada was pleased to welcome representatives from Coverdale Women’s Center and Outflow Ministry Men’s Shelter. Mayor Don Darling, Deputy Mayor Shirley McAlary and City Counsellors also attended to show support for these organizations. General Manager Rick Benoit provided the visitors with a tour of the facility and then presented the two shelters with a donation.
Thank you to both organizations for all that you do and we hope the donations help make a difference.
