Helping Where We Can – iON Donates $10,000 to Two Vital Charities This Holiday Season
Community involvement has been an important part of the iON Code since Day One, and in light of the unique difficulties currently facing many Canadians, we are pleased to announce two charity donations we’ll be making in the coming days.
First, we will be topping up the $1,500 contribution to Food Banks Canada announced at our annual Customer Appreciation Holiday Party in Calgary to the sum of $5,000. iON has always been a strong supporter of charities dedicated to alleviating food insecurity, including Brown Bags for Calgary’s Kids and the Mustard Seed. With visits to food banks across Canada having risen by 20% since 2019, these institutions need our help more than ever.
Second, in lieu of a Customer Appreciation party in Vancouver, iON will donate $5,000 to the Canadian Red Cross in response to their B.C. Floods & Extreme Weather Appeal. Like every Canadian, the iON team has been stunned by the images coming out of British Columbia of the enormous damage caused by the unprecedented floods hitting that region, and we want to do our part to help. Donations to this campaign will enable the Red Cross to continue their relief, recovery, resiliency, and risk reduction activities in the affected regions and beyond.
We hope all our friends in the IT and cybersecurity community have a safe and happy holiday season, and we encourage you to consider supporting those in need.
