Epitomizing the energy, spirit, and good nature of the In Every Neighbourhood campaign, MMM was honoured with two notable awards at this year’s United Way York Region (UWYR) celebration event; held in Vaughan on January 22, 2015.
The highly coveted Corporate Spirit Award (300+ employees) is awarded to an organization that has demonstrated their outstanding commitment through on-going corporate giving and sponsorship, active support of their employee campaigns, volunteerism, and senior leadership support. Living our purpose – to enrich the quality of people’s lives – MMM’s efforts contributed to providing more than 209,000 people in York Region with a helping hand.
For the second year in a row, MMM was recognized with the Day of Caring® Volunteer Spirit Award. Awarded in honour of Michael J. Donoghue, retired President / CEO of Allstate Canada and long-time United Way volunteer, the Day of Caring® Volunteer Spirit Award symbolizes the commitment of giving back through volunteering. Throughout 2014, teams of MMM volunteers made a difference at several United Way affiliates with their assistance and energy, including Blue Door Shelters, CHATS – Community and Home Assistance to Seniors, The Cross-Cultural Community Services Association, Sandgate Women’s Shelter, and Vita Community Living Services in the spring, and Community Living Newmarket / Aurora, Community Living York South, Girls Incorporated of York Region, and the York Region Food Network in the fall.
