TELUS Employees “Give Where They Live”

June 24th, 2014

Mr. Woodhead

Mr. Ted Woodhead, Vice President of Federal Government and Regulatory Affairs at TELUS, pitched in to clean the toys that our toddlers use during outdoor play!

On Saturday, May 31st, 2014, TELUS Ottawa employees returned to Youville Centre for their annual TELUS Day of Giving. Each spring, TELUS demonstrates its Day of Giving motto: “Give Where You Live” by giving their employees the opportunity to choose to volunteer at a local charity that is participating in the program. We were fortunate to have some of the same volunteers back again this year, and happy to see some new faces as well!

Best Weeder

This young lady weeded our entire yard by hand! She worked hard all day with smile on her face.

Great Team

Group with Planter

The employees and their families got to work weeding, raking, pruning and planting, all in an effort to make our yard and gardens clean and beautiful! Our childcare play yards were raked, and the equipment and toys were washed and organized neatly. Even Mr. Ted Woodhead, Senior Vice President of Federal Government and Regulatory Affairs at TELUS, pitched in to spruce up our play yards for the 55 infants and toddlers we serve each day.

Play yard cleanup

Our play yard equipment never looked so clean!

By the end of the day, we had fresh herb gardens, beautiful flowers and a clean yard and property due to the hard work of the families and individuals who chose to “give where they live”.

Happy Volunteers

Special thanks to Ted Woodhead, Shannon Gorman, Sarah Arden, and Greg Purdy for working so hard to make this day such a success, and for TELUS’ generous donation that made it all possible!
