Calgarians experiencing homelessness will have greater support from the Mustard Seed thanks to Strategic Group’s sponsorship of Dusk at the Downs. This annual event raises funds for employment programming, health and wellness services, and community hubs that are active all around Calgary.
“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is an important part of our culture at Strategic Group,” said Riaz Mamdani, CEO. “The Mustard Seed provides important services to our fellow Calgarians, and we are proud to be able to support them in their mission. ”
Strategic Group’s philanthropic efforts are intended to build legacy within community, have an effective impact on the lives of people, and create a sense of pride for everyone involved. The Mustard Seed, its team, and programming are an excellent example of a community organization doing exactly that. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization has hired over 100 additional staff to support pandemic-safe operations. This has also allowed them to support even more Calgarians in need. Over the past year, they have helped more than 385 people move from the streets into affordable housing. Their team has also helped more than 250 people find meaningful work through their employment programs.
With the support of Strategic Group and other funders, the Mustard Seed can continue this important work to help even more of our fellow citizens in need.
We hope that others can join us in our support of the Mustard Seed. To make your own contribution to this important organization, please visit https://theseed.ca/ways-to-give/.
