Oshawa Power has been a member of the Oshawa Community for more that 130 years and is dedicated to the community. This holiday season Oshawa Power employees worked with Simcoe Hall Settlement House to provide gifts for children in the community. Simcoe Hall Settlement House provided the first name, age, and the wish list of 46 children. Employees then chose a child and purchased a gift for them.
The spirit of giving was infectious. The employees talked to each other about what they had picked out for “their child”. Many employees took the opportunity to shop as a family, allowing their own children to pick out the gift and wrap it for another child.
President and CEO, Ivano Labricciosa said, “The employees at Oshawa Power are committed to helping in this community where we live and work. Not only do the staff make donations, they willingly help in the community volunteering their time and making a difference. It’s a great feeling to be a part of this organization and this community.”
The gifts were delivered to Simcoe Hall Settlement House for delivery to children in the community in time for Christmas.
