Rhodes & Williams’ Chosen Charities Receive Cash Donations

ExcelHr is a company that we work with from time to time to fill some of our staffing needs. Last year, they celebrated 30 years in business as one of Canada’s leading independent staffing firm. As part of their 30th year, they wanted to focus on giving back so they launched their “$30K for 30 years campaign”. They collected nominations from clients to submit nominations for a charity of their choosing to receive one of thirty (30) $1,000 donations OR one (1) $30,000 donation.

As you may know, Rhodes & Williams is a big supporter of Cystic Fibrosis and Cystic Fibrosis Canada and have been for many years. Kristy McDougall nominated Cystic Fibrosis Canada on behalf of Rhodes & Williams Limited.

The charitable giving committee at ExcelHR, comprised of members of their team, selected finalists based on the charity’s core values, the charity or program’s reach, fund allocation, donation dispersion, and overall presentation and creativity of the responses in the submission form. They evaluated dozens of nominations but placed an emphasis on areas that align with their greatest concerns ─ disadvantaged and vulnerable children and youth, mental health, and the experience of immigrants and newcomers to Canada.

After ExcelHR collected their “$30k for 30 years Campaign” nominations from their clients, they then opened it up to the general public nationwide. Robert Sayaphet, unknowing to Kristy, also nominated his charity of choice, The Snowsuit Fund | Le Fonds Habineige.

Surprising start to the new year

After it was announced that Kristy won $1000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Robert was also notified and surprised that his charity of choice, The Snowsuit Fund, was also selected as one of the final 30 charities to receive the $1,000 donations through this generous initiative.

In the end, two Rhodes & Williams’ nominated charities out of the dozens and dozens entries, won one of the 30 available donations. What a great way to start off 2020 for Rhodes & Williams and the charities involved. ❤️ 🙏
