The holidays are wonderful for a myriad of reasons. Many are lucky enough to take time off from work to spend time with friends and family at home, while others pack their bags and jet off to a warm beach for their break. It’s during this time of year that we think back on all the things we’re lucky to have in our lives, and more importantly, those who may not be as lucky. While the holiday season is certainly about celebrations, it’s more so about giving, whether it’s giving gifts to your loved ones, or giving back to the community. This is something we at Paradise Developments take joy in doing every holiday season.
Paradise Developments has been a family-run company since 1971. We’re a caring team and love finding opportunities to give back to our community in any way we can. One way we give back has become a yearly holiday tradition – the Children’s Holiday Party at Princess Margaret Hospital! This is just one way to give back to our community over the holidays, and a great opportunity to put a smile on children and families’ faces who need it most! Here are all the details!
This summer has been very gracious – easing us into the higher temperatures, preparing us for the scorchers. But as we finish July and head into the August, the heat feels like it’s hear to stay. Whether you choose to hide out in A/C or guzzle your Iced Capps, staying cool is top priority on those hot days. But there are more fun ways of keeping cool (think inner-tubes). Check out these 5 spots to go for a splash in the GTA to help you get your cool on.
We’ve mentioned before how much working with hospitals in the communities we build in is important to us, and North York General Hospital is one of those hospitals. Not only are we all North York natives, but the hospital’s transition from a suburban hospital to a regional health centre able to cater to over 400,000 people a year has been truly staggering to watch. North York General has become one of the most in-demand and prestigious health centres in Canada. At Paradise Developments, we wanted to support a priority at the hospital that would benefit patients and the system and as a whole.
As many of you already know, giving back to the communities we build in is a huge part of what we do. One of the initiatives we’re most proud of is the Wellspring Chinguacousy cancer support centre in Brampton – we donated land that’s just a short drive away from our Upper Mount Pleasant project, so that Wellspring could expand and build one of their centres there.
Giving back to the communities we live, work, and build in is important to the entire Paradise Developments team. We’ve made it our mission to not only contribute to cities and towns by creating new communities to live in, but to contribute to the greater good of those places as well. This is why we choose to make considerable donations to hospitals in every community we build in! Our VP, Rob Baruch, has taken a particular interest in North York General Hospital and is even the chairman of their hospital board.
