Company Volunteering: Become a Partner for a Day!

One way for large companies to give back to their communities is by partnering with Share the Warmth for a day. Companies send us employees to help us with whatever needs to get done that day. Past Partners for a Day have helped us paint, pack boxes at the Food Bank or hand out school supplies.

Some of our Partners for a Day have been Bombardier Aerospace, McGill University, BDO, Canadian Grenadier Guards, Beurling Academy, DentsuBos, Jumpstreet, Yellow Pages, Telus and Concordia University.

Thank you to all our amazing volunteers!
