At SBLR We Give Back
14 Dec 2018
In an effort to give back to the community, SBLR selects an internal Charitable Committee each year to raise funds for some very worthy charitable organizations.
Our designated charity for 2018 was Dreams & Wishes Children's Charity. This charity aims to preserve and create positive childhood memories by fulfilling 'dreams and wishes' made by children and families deemed underprivileged and in need.
Dreams & Wishes Children's Charity operates a variety of programs throughout the year in order to support its beliefs. Dreams & Wishes organizes and hosts an annual Christmas Breakfast event for children who are referred by local Child Welfare Agencies, Women's Shelters, Community Organizations and Food Banks. In addition, children from local shelters provide Dreams & Wishes with 'Santa's Wish List' which it aims to fill and deliver to the shelters prior to Christmas day.
SBLR's goal was to raise $5,000 through a variety of team and client events in 2018, such as bake sales, casual Fridays, raffles, potlucks, etc. So far, we have surpassed our goal, raising over $7,000 for this great charity!
SBLR's 'Favourite Things' auction was the last 2018 team event in support of Dreams and Wishes Children's Charity.
A great evening for a great cause!
