Team Strategic came together to create the “Candy Grams for Cans” campaign in an effort to brighten Team Members’ days leading up to Valentine’s while contributing to a great cause.
Starting on the 1st of February, Team Members were given the opportunity to donate to the Calgary Food Bank with the ultimate goal to raise $1000. For every $1 donated, they sent one candy gram to a colleague.
$1,201 was raised in just seven work days by almost 150 Strategic Group Team Members with the most beautiful outcome of all: that everyone received between 1 and 10 candies – either anonymously or not. The smiles, surprise, excitement and sugar highs in the office reminded us all of how sweet it is to give a kind word when it is not expected and reach a target so that the Food Bank can help others.
Strategic Group also supports the food bank with the annual Let’s Eat! campaign. Strategic Group works together with its tenants and the citizens of Calgary to collect non-perishable food items in their building lobbies for five days in June. In 2015 alone, Let’s Eat! brought in 4,043 lbs of food and over $11k in cash donations. Stay tuned for more details on the 2016 campaign.
From Strategic Group to our Calgary community – Happy Valentine’s Day.
