It’s TITUS Boxing Day today. While traditionally Boxing Day follows Christmas on December 26th, we celebrate a week or so before. We also differ from tradition as the Christmas boxes we prepare are not for our employees, but are boxed by our employees for those in our community who could use some extra help.
Each year, in the weeks leading up to the Christmas break, the TITUS team collects toys for Ottawa’s Toy Mountain and items that will make up gift bags for clients of Cornerstone Housing for Women. This year our development team decided to donate their holiday party funds to Trips for Kids, a charity that provides mountain biking and outdoor experiences for kids who would not otherwise be exposed to these activities. Our development team spent the morning assembling mountain bikes (and taking them for a test ride around the office).
Today, amid the tasty pot-luck lunch treats, we boxed up the items we collected and the bikes we built so that they can be delivered in time for the holidays.
At TITUS we love where we live—and hope that you love where you live too. If you have the means, please take the time to give back to your community this holiday season.
Have a happy New Year!
