Jay's Home Opener
We were thrilled to see so many people come out to support the Richmond Hill Foodbank at our SCS Stadium Lunch event at the office on Jay’s home opener day! Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we were able to raise $1200!! This donation along with all of the food items donated will go a long way in helping the Richmond Hill Food Bank.
Step Challenge - In Support of StopGap
Thank you to everyone who participated and donated in support of StopGap! Together we raised $2,123 while getting some exercise and enjoying the outdoors. Fun Fact – during this challenge we took total of 11.36 million steps! That’s walking from our office to Istanbul Turkey!
StopGap Foundation is a Toronto based charity that aims to create a world where every person can access every space. They work to raise awareness about barriers in our built environment and engage communities to work towards removing these barriers. They have populated the world with over 2000 ramps to date.

Thank you to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and donated to the Canadian Blood Services. Your contributions will help many people in need of blood. Together we raised $7,212. A special thank you to our Partners who donated almost $3,500.
SCS has partnered with Geranium and have donated many sleeping bags to send to Ukrainian refugees. Many Ukrainians have fled the country and have had to stay at refugee shelters or camps. These sleeping bags will make a huge difference to help give them comfort and keep them warm. We thank everyone who donated and we continue to keep our Ukrainian colleagues and their families in our thoughts and prayers.
It was a November for the books!! THE MUSTACHE MADE ME DO IT charity event brought out the SCS competitive spirit in support of Movember. We made mascots and memes, competed in obstacle courses, feats of strength, and SQUIM Games. We got to witness the debut of The Silver Jimmies and a couple of our favourite colleagues getting a pie in the face. All the while rocking some fine-looking mustaches.
Thank you to all for participating, tuning in, and donating!! We raised an incredible $7,585 for men’s health!!
