In celebration of International Volunteer Day, the Trafalgar Canada team came together to support Holiday Helpers Canada, a charity whose mission is to provide a one-time customized Christmas package to over 750 families with young children, who are living in low-income situations.
Each sponsored family receives an artificial tree, decorations, gift card to a warm meal and presents from their personalized wish list.
Since 2008, Trafalgar, has been offering team members two paid volunteer days annually to support causes close to their hearts as part of its commitment to social responsibility.
Last week, in celebration of International Volunteer Day 2019, many Trafalgar team members across the globe contributed some of their paid volunteer time to take part in meaningful initiatives, including beach clean-ups, gift wrapping, dog walking, and food drives, all of which contributed towards 24,000 paid volunteer hours across the course of the year.
The volunteer days offer staff the choice to give back as teams and individuals according to their schedules and encourages a dialogue between the offices around the world to share what they do.
As well, the company’s JoinTrafalgar sustainability initiatives support a number of causes throughout the year with the primary pillars of supporting people, places, wildlife and then planet as part of the brand’s JoinTrafalgar DNA.
