Sky's the Limit Album > STL @ TELUS Day of Giving!
Saturday May 28th was TELUS' Day of Giving and Rema (STL Executive Director) was invited to participate at the Harbourfront Community Centre!

TELUS team members, retirees, Community Ambassadors and their family and friends came together to lend a hand in their local communities on TELUS Day of Giving. This is the sixth year TELUS has hosted this signature volunteer event across Canada.

40,000 helping hands
In over 32 locations across the country, local communities are greener, cleaner and stronger thanks to the variety of volunteer initiatives led by TELUS volunteers. To date, over 40,000 TELUS volunteers have given 122,000 hours of painting, gardening, planting trees, landscaping, cooking, serving lunch, sorting cans of food and sewing, just to name a few activities.

Harbourfront Community Centre (HCC) is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with residents and community-minded organizations to create a safe and supportive environment for people of all ages. By engaging the community, they ensure that HCC’s activities will meet the growing and diverse needs of their neighbourhood – now and in the future.
