London Ontario Community – 2016 Wrap Up
Our involvement with the London Ontario Community this year has been great! 2016 has been a wonderful year for 1st Choice Home Solutions. We started off with a big change moving from Dorchester, Ontario into London Ontario, on the east side. We set up our showroom with 3 new exterior doors, a window display and a beautiful siding feature on our one wall.
In May we teamed up with Paws United to raise money for their pet adoption not-for-profit organization. We headed down to Pet Valu on Hyde Park Road and cooked up some delicious burgers and hot dogs, as well as some treats for our furry friends. Our staff member was also able to recruit her teammate on 1st Choice Home Solutions sponsored team, “Prove it!” to help collect donations as well.
Paws United brought some of the dogs out who were up for adoption and collected any food or item donations as well. We raised $222 in a few hours, and we decided to match it and donate $444 in total! We are happy to say, all of the dogs were adopted within a month of the fundraiser.
We continued our sponsorship with East London Soccer for U6 Boys and sponsored a new team; London Sharks Volleyball 14U Girls. We are happy to continue supporting local children activities, and their passion.
Starting November 1st until December 20th we collected Toys for Tots toy donations in our showroom. We had a lot of support from the community and received 66 donations in total! We are so grateful to be able to be a sponsored drop off location this year and will continue to work with Toys for Tots in the future!
2016 has been an amazing and eventful year! We are looking forward to 2017 and all the new and exciting things it has to offer. We will continue our sponsorship with East London Soccer and London Sharks Volleyball and will look into another sponsorship opportunity. We will be holding another fundraiser to raise money for a different local not-for-profit organization, so stay connected with us to find out more!
Thank you for a successful year!
