On Monday, December 11, Fengate staff from our Toronto and Oakville offices participated in our annual Louis Serafini Sr. Community Partnership Day. This is the day of the year where we roll up our sleeves together and volunteer our time in the community, on behalf of our founder and representing the Fengate Community Foundation.
This year, we decided to team up with Holiday Helpers, an important and impactful organization that brings joy and assistance to families in need during the holiday season.
Over 100 of our team members took part in various activities at Santa’s Workshop in Mississauga; sorting and boxing donations for deliveries (including food, clothing, and gifts), wrapping presents, shopping for a family’s gift list, and delivering packages to families.
It was a meaningful experience for the Fengate team to have positive, hands-on impact for 1,150 families in need. Thank you always to our founder Louis Serafini Sr. for instilling in us that we can always lend a helping hand.
