Status Team Members Participated in Pink Shirt Day Feb 24th
Pink Shirt Day was founded just a few years ago by some caring high school students, to bring attention to the prevalence of bullying in our children’s lives. We can support the cause and help raise awareness of anti-bullying campaigns, by wearing a pink shirt - or anything pink – on the designated day.
Status kicks off the Holiday Season at Annual Christmas Party while giving back to Community.
Matthew’s House is a Respite Center located in Abbotsford. Since November 2013, the house has provided individualized care to children with complex medical needs. This home away from home provides children with a safe and state of the art facility while their families take time to rest and rejuvenate. Every other year, the Giving Gala raises funds to support the house’s development and operational costs, This year, the Giving Gala will take place on September 12th 2015. The event plans to raise money for the creation of a multisensory playroom which can allow the house to expand its services to children with behavioral outbursts. A service which would allow the house to expand its impact in the Fraser Valley.
Status Team supports co-worker and family in reaching their fundraising goal.
There are an estimated 100, 000 Canadians living with Multiple Sclerosis , the highest rate in the world. The disease affects each individual differently and is quite unpredictable, affecting vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. There is no cure for MS however research is learning more about causes and prevention.
Status is proud to have contributed to this great cause.
Congratulations to Donna Griffin, Michele Baratelli, and Elaine OShea for raising a combined total of $6700 for Breast Cancer research during the Walk To End Breast Cancer on September 6th, 2008.
