Walker Industries 2014 Sustainability Report

Together WE Can (TWC)

Finance & I.T.
In early October, 34 employees volunteered with Community Care in St. Catharines and Thorold by sorting and packaging food, clothing and household donations. In addition, they assisted with the housing program and sorted the toy room in preparation for Christmas. When the Christmas season arrived the team collected funds, winter clothing, toys and non-perishable food items for Project Share, Niagara Falls and Community Care, St. Catharines.
Winning the Chance to Give
With $10,000 left to give to the community, TWC organized a lottery to disseminate the funds. Fifteen employees won the chance to give to their chosen charity. Some employees had a deep personal connection to the organization they chose, others held a strong belief in the cause. Employees were so grateful for the opportunity to make a difference.
