August 16, 2019 – The employees at Oshawa Power believe in giving back to the community where they live and work. For the second year in a row, employees got together to have a BBQ lunch as a fundraiser for Simcoe Hall Settlements House’s 2019 Backpack Program. Employees then brought in a backpack or cash to pay for their lunch.
Employees say, “It is a great cause right here in our community and that’s important to us. Simcoe Hall Settlement House does a great job organizing this, and we want to help them make sure that all children have the tools they need to learn”.
President and CEO, Ivano Labricciosa said, “The staff of eighty employees donated the food, volunteered their lunch hour to cook and serve their fellow employees and when it was all done, they collected 67 backpacks, several lunch bags, and $276.80 in cash to donate to the cause. I am extremely proud of the staff here at Oshawa Power, who willingly give back to the community by volunteering their time and/or making donations to help others. When called upon to help, employee response is always tremendous, and truly from the heart – they are an asset to the community”.
