Kicking off a season of giving on #GivingTuesday

After the chaos of Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes “GivingTuesday”, a global day of giving with the goal of bringing change to communities across the world. GivingTuesday happens annually on the Tuesday after Black Friday and marks the opening day of the giving season, a time for charities, companies and individuals to come together to support important causes.

Participation comes in a wide variety of forms, from employee engagement and fundraisers, to volunteering, food drives and more. Each year, the TPH Charitable Office organizes a company-wide initiative during the holiday season as a way give back to communities across the country. Each of the regions in which the company operates supports a different cause that’s close to home, and employees and customers of the Branches in these locations come together to fundraise and donate to those in need.

Here are some of the causes TPH will be supporting in 2017:

Region Charity or Cause
Alliston The Good Shepherd Food Bank
Brampton Food Harvest
Hamilton, Burlington & Oakville St. Matthew’s House & Kerr Street Mission
Mississauga The Open Door
Niagara Community Care
Nova Scotia Homebridge Youth Society & Nova Scotia Food Bank
Ottawa The Shoe Box Project & The Shoe Box for Men Project
Toronto Adopt a Family – Fife House 
Vancouver Shaun G Foundation
Whitby The Regional Municipality of Durham, Social Services Department Durham
In 2016, TPH Head Office was able to donate over 10 boxes of food donations, as well as gifts including warm clothes and gift cards to purchase other necessities to a family in need.

The holidays are a time to spread joy to others, and GivingTuesday is the perfect reminder that by coming together through causes that unite us, we can truly make a difference. If you’d like to make a donation, visit your local TPH Branch and see how you can contribute! Another easy way to support a great cause is by purchasing TPH Charitable Greeting Cards.100% of the proceeds from the sale of these cards will be donated to Indspire’s Soaring: Indigenous Youth Career Conference.
