Deloitte is committed to making a positive contribution to local communities. Through pro bono and skills-based volunteering, strategic relationships with non-profits, charitable giving and IMPACT Day initiatives, Deloitte professionals demonstrate their passion for making a positive impact in the communities where we work and live.
Every October, hundreds of Deloitte employees across the country give a day of their time to work in local communities. This year was the first time many of our people worked alongside youth at the Phoenix shelter as part of IMPACT Day. We raked leaves, painted the gazebo on the property, and got the gardens and the neighborhood ready for winter.
Working with these youth, our team learned even more about what Phoenix does in our community, and it compelled us to do an essential items drive at our office, ensuring we did something more to help out. With all the travel our team does, it was easy for us to gather travel size shampoo and conditioner. We gathered 4 boxes and 4 big bags of items (travel and full size) for youth and delivered them to the Phoenix Centre for Youth in November!
"We admire Phoenix’s deep commitment to helping disadvantaged youth achieve their potential - it’s simply inspiring the way Phoenix has made that possible for so many over the past 30 years. Well done, Phoenix; a huge thank you from all of us, for all you do! " -the Deloitte LLP team, Halifax
