As always, IHHP continues to be involved with charity events and organizations in our communities to help those struggling to “be their best when it matters most”. The overwhelming joy and pride we take in helping others outside of work is something IHHP has been doing for years and we wanted to update our valued community some of these activities.In 2010 and 2011, IHHP has been one of the main sponsors for the Lake Simcoe Tour which helps support the local food banks in efforts to reduce those in need.The 2011 Dragon Boat Festival in Barrie, Ontario, Canada saw the emergence of the team “Its Been Emotional” who took the award home for “Rookie Of The Year”. That was us!
Since joining Kiva in 2008, IHHP has participated in the raising of funds for over 90 different individuals, organizations and businesses in third world countries For those unaware of how Kiva works, it is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Using the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions.
We look forward to continuing our effort heading into 2012 and would love to hear some stories from you on how you or your organizations are making our communities a better place. Please send your stories to[email protected].
