This December, Tantus employees participated in the preparation of Holiday hampers in support of JCI Edmonton.
JCI Edmonton set a goal to provide 800 hampers to Edmonton families in need this month and we are very happy to say that they achieved their goal!
Tantus employees committed to providing hampers for three Edmonton families in need this holiday season. These families consisted of children ranging in age from 1 year to 16 years old and each family had 8+ members. The hampers were filled with food items for holiday celebrations and day to day staples. In addition, the hampers included gifts for each family member.
In the spirit of the season, Tantus matched employee hamper contributions by providing additional goods for the hampers and donating funds to JCI Edmonton. JCI uses these funds to purchase turkeys which are then distributed with the hampers as the centre piece of the holiday meal!
Tantus employees were on hand on hamper delivery day (December 19, 2015) to ensure that our hampers made it safely to the doorsteps of their intended families.
At Tantus, we are committed to investing in the communities we live and work in. We feel strongly that our obligation as an employer and corporate citizen goes beyond our clients and our financial success. We support local organizations and encourage our staff to pursue volunteer interests that matter to them. The JCI Edmonton Holiday Hamper Program is just one example of this.
We are very proud of the generosity and support our employees showed for local Edmonton families this holiday season. Not only are our staff great to work with, they are truly great people!
