HAVING HEART FOR PEOPLE IN NEED
Through PSP Care, we make it our mission to actively support people in need. This support can take on many forms, and extend to a variety of places. Sometimes, it’s our local community that requires our most immediate attention. Other times, we focus on global intiatives or urgent disaster relief sitiations abroad. Depending on the need, our response varies between one-time and ongoing support. Below, you can learn more about some of the specific causes that are near and dear to our heart:
We are also extremely proud of our on-going involvement with International Hope Canada, Canadian Food for Children and Health Partners of Canada. Each year, we donate health care products valued at thousands of dollars to assist with their on-going humanitarian and relief efforts around the world. Our product donations have been shipped to a number of areas in need by these wonderful organizations, including Peru, Nicaragua, Ghana, Negros, El Salvador and Zambia, to name a few.
We proudly support a number of local (Manitoba and Alberta) charities throughout each year, including: CancerCare, Variety Club, Fire Fighters Burn Fund, Breakfast for Learning, Siloam Mission and several more. As well, we provide support to some of our Canadian retail and wholesale customers and their corporate fundraising initiatives. A number of our staff members also volunteer their time to further support these and other incredibly worthwhile initiatives.
URGENT DISASTER RELIEF:
When disasters strike, we answer the call for help through products and/or donations. Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, we shipped distilled water to New Orleans to ensure people’s basic needs were being met. We also provided products to the Haiti Earthquake relief efforts in 2010, when medical attention was a top priority. More recently, we sent products and cash donations collected by our team of caring and dedicated employees in support of Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. The 2013 typhoon ravaged the Philippines and affected many of our employees’ family and friends.
You are representative of the very best that this country has to offer. I wish to offer profound gratitude and applause for your extraordinary work and our belief that all the individuals who contribute to the humanitarian efforts of International Hope Canada truly personify the essence of what it takes to be a modern day hero.
