December 10th, 2015 – was a day of reciprocity for the Albarrie family. Each employee was given one free run turkey to share with his or her family as a token of appreciation for everyone’s hard work and dedication in 2015; but the generosity didn’t stop there. The gift of giving spread, sparking the innate desire to pay it forward. A group of employees donated their turkeys to the less fortunate so they could enjoy a traditional turkey dinner over the Holidays. A total of 12 turkeys were donated: six turkeys were delivered to the Salvation Army Bayside Center, matching the six turkeys sent to the Women & Children’s Shelter in Barrie, ON.
December 23rd, 2015 – the Albarrie organization will be donating unwrapped toys and imperishable food items to the Christmas Cheer Foundation in Barrie, ON. Employees have contributed to this initiative during several holiday events and will continue to over the course of December, including our holiday potluck on the 15th. We’re grateful that we can give back to the community we care for.
We encourage everyone who can help, to donate food, toys, or clothes to men and women who are unable to provide for their families this year. For more information on how to donate to the Christmas Cheer Foundation, visit: www.christmascheerbarrie.com/donate-drop-off-locations/
