We want to hear how you’re helping other Ontarians!
Publish date: Wednesday, April 22, 2020 update
Two weeks ago, AMAPCEO donated $50,000 to support four Ontario-based social service agencies that help vulnerable Ontarians during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, many AMAPCEO members have come forward with ways they would like to help—from volunteering for seniors’ food access programs, to offering to donate their recent annual increase to programs that will help out during this crisis
As unemployment rises, programs scale back, and businesses struggle, the AMAPCEO Board wants to know how our pragmatic members are giving back to their community to inspire others to do the same.
- Have you purchased a gift card or prepaid for a service at a local business?
- Is there a charity to which you now make a monthly donation?
- Do you buy groceries or other supplies for people who cannot go to the store?
- Do you do a regular take out night from a place special to you to help it weather the storm?
We want to hear how you’re helping and publicize it in an upcoming issue of Member News. Email us your actions, big or small, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
