As the temperatures drop in Ontario, our team gets into gear, through our annual clothing drive, to support those living on low incomes, in shelters and on the streets.
As a community, the Crown team and our building occupants were able to collect over 1,300 Ibs of coats, boots, and warm winter accessories for all ages which were donated to New Circles, a not-for-profit agency that builds strong communities by providing both clothing and skills training programs to individuals and families in need.
Clothing is an essential aspect of good heath, self-esteem, social inclusion and employability. The New Circles GLOW clothing program provides access to those in need to free, gently worn clothing, allowing them to allocate their resources to for food, housing, and other necessities. A family of four using the program is able to save up to $5,000 annually. Crown is proud to have helped contribute to the New Circles initiative, and we look forward to continuing our participation in 2023.
Crown supports charitable causes that are near and dear to our team. To acknowledge and support the time and effort our team takes to contribute to our local communities, Crown introduced a new “Paid Time Off for Charity Work Policy” in the first quarter of 2022. Through this initiative, we offer each employee up to 16 paid hours of volunteer time per year.
