SGI helps provide a "home away from home" at Ronald McDonald House
Dec. 19, 2013
SGI is donating $10,000 to Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan (RMHS) in support of its Make the House a Home campaign.
The donation will help furnish the Rowdy Play Room, a fun and active room where children can play and families can relax together, located in their new expansion. Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan provides a place for families across the province to stay while their seriously ill child is being treated at one of Saskatoon's hospitals.
“The holiday season is a time of giving, and SGI is committed to giving back to the communities where we do business,” said Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI. “If we can help put a smile on a child's face, then that’s the best present we could ever ask for.”
Each holiday season, SGI contributes to a charitable organization, like Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan, on behalf of its more than 1,900 employees.
“We sincerely thank SGI for its support in helping make Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan a home away from home for these deserving kids and their families,” said Tammy Forrester, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan. “The Rowdy Play Room will let kids be kids, and there's nothing more rewarding for parents than to see their child enjoying themselves.”
In 2012, SGI donated $10,000 to the Saskatchewan Food Bank and SGI employees throughout the province also collected more than 6,000 pounds of non-perishable food items.
