NTN staff across the country are taking part in holiday season charity initiatives to support their local communities. In Mississauga, employees have donated $3,388 to Ellen House, part of the Elizabeth Fry Society Of Peel, which is an adult halfway house designed to accommodate women to meet their needs and goals, for employment, education, childcare, and treatment. In Vancouver, our employees have donated $2,950 to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre which provides support to over 500 women, children and seniors, every day. As well as providing a refuge and shelter from conditions of poverty and violence, the Centre provides basic necessities including hot meals, free clothing, phone and computer access, and secure toilets and showers. In Edmonton, our employees have donated $3,040 to Kids Kottage, a crisis prevention and early intervention service that cares for infants and children by providing a nurturing environment for them to be physically and emotionally safe, while the adults are connected to the resources they need to strengthen their parenting capacity and prevent the family from falling further into crisis. In Montreal, our employees have donated $3,146 to Regroupements des maisons femmes victimes de violence conjugal, consisting of 43 shelter houses located across Quebec supporting women suffering from domestic violence.

The staff at NTN Bearing Corporation of Canada have also partnered with the Dixie Bloor Neighbourhood Centre to provide Christmas for less fortunate families in Mississauga. The Dixie-Bloor neighbourhood is one of the areas where Mississauga’s low-income and impoverished residents live. Through the Christmas Sponsorship Program, NTN has raised $3,386 which will be used to purchase household items and warm clothing.

The holiday season also provides NTN with the opportunity to donate clothing and help reduce food insecurity for hundreds of elder homeless men at the Haven Toronto homeless shelter. On December 15, NTN volunteers will serve a hot Christmas meal to over 200 clients at Haven Toronto, helping to give hope and dignity to those impacted by poverty, homelessness and isolation. NTN staff have also generously donated a trailer full of warm clothing to ensure those in need can stay warm at Christmas.

One of NTN’s core, corporate values is to be an asset to our communities worldwide, and NTN’s philanthropic and volunteer programs are the vehicles by which we deliver on this value. We are so proud to work with such generous employees. Giving back this holiday season and throughout the year is a win-win for everyone — our employees, our communities and NTN.
