United Way Day of Caring brings United Way, SK Blue Cross, and GGP together

On November 24, we had an amazing day collaborating with United Way of Saskatoon and Area and Saskatchewan Blue Cross for the United Way Day of Caring! It was the event’s first-ever Winter Edition and their generosity warmed our space and our hearts!

Employees from Saskatchewan Blue Cross volunteered all day in our Main Office and English Language Centre, working on a range of projects including painting classrooms and refreshing the children’s room, which will help adults and kids alike learn in a bright, inviting space. Volunteers also played holiday elves, packaging Christmas gifts for 100 children and putting up trees and decorations. It felt so good to have community partners in our space after this long pandemic period, and the festive decorations are more appreciated than ever, too!

We are so grateful to United Way of Saskatoon and Area and Saskatchewan Blue Cross for their partnership, as well as for living their values and helping us feel the local love! To hear from our partners, check out this great CTV article.
