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.
Each year Paradise staff raise funds for our annual charity holiday events and along with that, our funds are generously matched by Paradise Developments, giving us an amazing opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life this time of year. In addition to the donations, many of our staff members participate in the following:
For well over a decade, Paradise Developments has been able to support families in York Region by donating gifts and holiday food to the Santa Fund, a charity that helps provide a better Christmas for families who might not otherwise be able to provide for their children as much as they’d like to during this special time of year.
Princess Margaret Children’s Holiday Party
Paradise Developments is a proud participant in sponsoring the purchase of toys for the children of parents receiving care at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre or who are patients themselves. Each year Santa comes to Toronto early to spend time with these special kids at the annual Children’s Holiday Party and provide a day filled with fun, surprises, and best of all lots of smiling faces!
Holland Bloorview Children’s Holiday Party
The holiday season is a particularly special time for children. Paradise Developments is happy to participate in the Holland Bloorview Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital‘s Children’s Holiday Party where an evening of fun takes place. The children and their families are able to enjoy a festive dinner complete with lots of gifts and a sprinkling of holiday magic.
We at Paradise Developments are thrilled to be able to provide some extra joy to children and families during the holiday season. How are you giving back this year?
