Our team is participating in the Play On street hockey tournament in London, ON this weekend.
Today is the International Day of Families, which was started by an United Nations resolution in 1993.
Nerds On Site is founded on the 3-F’s principle, which forms the 3 pillars of our company: Faith, Family, Fiscals. Today is a great day for us to all spend a bit extra with our families, both immediate and extended, and to think of those many families less fortunate than our own.
If you feel the ability to help out a family in need today, can we suggest donating a few dollars to World Relief? Let’s all work to make the world a better place for our children!
Our team in Ottawa have been working with the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard for a number of years. The GEFC helps feed 500 families in the Gloucester area of Ottawa (approximately 1800 adults and children). The relationship was started by POD Leader Tony Mili providing free IT support and has seen us participate with the GEFC in the Santa Claus parade for the last 5 years. During the setup at last years parade our team got into a discussion about holding a ‘Fill the Beetle…Feed the People’ event on their behalf. At their request we waited until now but today saw the Ottawa Pod hold their first Ottawa ’Fill the Beetle…Feed the People’ in a long time. The day was a great success and we certainly managed to fill the Beetle! On top of all the food donations we also collected approximately $180 in cash donations. A big thanks goes to eNerds Len Cobb, Fred Farid, Stephen Kidd, Robert Goliss and Tony Mil for helping make this day a success!
