TLC@Home is extremely grateful and proud that Cameco and Global have chosen to partners with us:
“Since we became involved, and Cameco came on board, it has grown and we are proud to say that we’ve been able to make the season a little brighter for hundreds of children in our community,” said Lisa Ford, station manager and news director at Global Saskatoon.
This is the third year Cameco has participated in the program. The Saskatoon-based uranium producer is taking King George and St. Michael schools, along with donating assembling space.
“We want to make a difference in our community and this does that. We are not going to sell more shares on the stock exchange by doing this program and that’s not why we are doing this program, we’re involved in this because we do want to make that real difference,” said Jonathan Huntington, Cameco’s Director, Corporate Relations.
It’s a sentiment echoed by Ford.
“This grassroots charity, helping our own Saskatoon children, fits in perfectly with our passion for helping those in our community,” said Ford.
“We have had a long standing relationship with Hairstyle Inn and Shelley and Laddie, who started TLC@Home, so it made sense for us to help them promote the charity and help by having our own staff get involved making gift boxes for the children.”
“It really is neat, you walk in, every kid’s got their name on a box and you work through the whole school,” said Huntington. “We measure this program on the amount of smiles and the amount of impact we make and last year was tremendously successful.”
“It is a very humbling experience to see the beautiful smiles from the kids when they get their Christmas box,” added Ford. “I hope it’s making a difference, and even if one child walks away in a happy place, it’s all worth it.”
