Simply Group Donates $5,000 to United Way Halton & Hamilton
(Hamilton: February 13, 2018) – Today, staff from Sandpiper Energy Solutions and Simply Green presented a cheque for $5,000 to the United Way Halton & Hamilton Region on behalf of its parent company, Simply Group, and its charity, Simply Cares. The staff also distributed hot chocolate and warm clothes at Wesley Urban Ministries where the cheque was presented.
“Giving back to the communities we work and live in is an important part of our core values,” said Lawrence Krimker, Founder and CEO, Simply Group. “Growing up with a single mom, we didn’t have a lot. Neither did those in our community. That’s why today, supporting at risk youth and ensuring the people in the communities have the help they need is important to us.”
The donation was raised from partial proceeds of every furnace ($25) and water heater ($50) installed by Simply Green and Sandpiper Energy Solutions in the Hamilton region this winter.
“We are grateful to Simply Group for their support during this year's harsh winter season,” said Brad Park, United Way Halton & Hamilton CEO. “With another six weeks of winter weather headed our way, ensuring all of our community members have warm clothes and the support they need is essential.”
“In the past year, Wesley Day Centre helped 1,008 vulnerable men and women with housing, meals, healthcare, recreation, and harm reduction groups. This is an increase of 185 adults helped from the previous year, illustrating the need in our community. Every donation we receive goes towards providing emergency food at Wesley Day Centre and supporting Wesley’s Housing first programs in Hamilton and Halton Region.” Daljit Garry, Executive Director, Wesley Urban Ministries.
Giving back to local communities is a core pillar of Simply Group’s charitable focus. Every year, staff donate warm clothes to local shelters in the neighborhoods they live and work in across the country.
