FirstService Residential Ontario Launches Second Annual Samaritan’s Feet Campaign
TORONTO, ON (February 13, 2018) – FirstService Residential, Ontario’s leading property management company, launched its second annual fundraising campaign today supporting Samaritan’s Feet, a global humanitarian aid organization that provides new shoes to underprivileged children.
FirstService Residential was the first organization in Canada to complete a fundraising campaign for Samaritan’s Feet, an aid organization that has helped over 6.5 million people around the world. Funds raised during the campaign will go directly towards purchasing new shoes for impoverished children in the Greater Toronto Area.
"FirstService Residential is an integral part of growing our efforts in Canada and bringing new shoes and joy to hundreds of children in the Toronto area and beyond," said Manny Ohonme, Co-Founder, CEO, & President of Samaritan's Feet. "We are so thankful for their upcoming campaign and know that many lives will be positively impacted through it."
This is the second year FirstService Residential has fundraised for Samaritan’s Feet. In 2017, FirstService Residential Ontario raised almost $10,000 which provided shoes to children in the Jane-Finch community.
“Every day, FirstService strives to be genuinely helpful and improve the lifestyle of every resident in the communities we manage and live in. We are honoured to have the opportunity to make a difference throughout the larger community of Toronto as well,” said Randy Hutchings, president of FirstService Residential Ontario.
