At Xiris we believe in giving back to the communities in which we live and work by creating a positive impact to support our surrounding neighbourhoods. As we enter the new year, we wanted to reflect back on all the initiatives our dedicated team took part in during 2019.
Burlington Food Drive
As part of our commitment to the community, we participated in the Burlington Food Bank food drive during the months surrounding the holiday season. The Burlington Food Bank ensures that no one in Burlington struggles with hunger and we wanted to do our part to ensure that every family could enjoy the holidays. In October our team collected and donated 83 kg of non-perishable food items and over 45 kg in December.
Canadian Blood Services
Half of all Canadians will either need blood or know someone who needs it which is why we made it our goal to donate blood to Canadian Blood Services in Burlington. We are proud of our six team members who helped in being part of Canada’s lifeline by simply donating blood.
Donation to United Way
In an effort to support our surrounding community, our team at Xiris has collectively raised $1,500 to be donated to United Way Halton and Hamilton. The money donated is invested into 100% local agencies and programs that support the community in many different ways. We are so glad to be able to contribute to an organization that truly helps local citizens reach their potential.
It doesn’t stop there. In 2020 we will be donating to employee nominated corporations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Halton and Hamilton, as well as Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. We are very exciting for the opportunities we will have to support our communities in the new year.
