On Saturday, May 25th, 2013, 30 plus TELUS Ottawa employees donned their t-shirts and jeans, rolled up their sleeves and participated in the TELUS Day of Giving. With a motto to “Give Where You Live”, this community initiative was yet another socially responsible way that TELUS is giving back to their community. Led by passionate Youville Centre supporter Shannon Gorman, the TELUS employees pitched in and performed the following tasks inside and outside the centre:

  • Painting our Collective Kitchen
  • Painting our Sunflower Crib Room
  • Washing windows
  • Cleaning the Toddler Play Yard
  • Collecting trash from the school grounds
  • Planting herbs and other edibles in our Youville gardens
  • Raking leaves, collecting branches and other yard waste

TELUS Ottawa employees and their families worked together to get these tasks done in record time! We are so grateful to each and every one of them for taking time out of their day to help make Youville Centre a little brighter!

Special thanks to Shannon and Meredith for being great examples and rallying such a great group of volunteers! Please enjoy these photos from the day, taken by local photographer Justin Van Leeuwen.
