FIDO WITH CARE
SEE THE DIFFERENCE WE’VE MADE SO FAR, WITH CARE
Fido With Care started a couple of months ago and we’re amazed by what we’ve been able to do so far. More amazing are our partners, Food Banks Canada and Pflag Canada, who provide critically important services. We’re proud of everyone involved: the volunteers, those who donated, and those who stepped up in other ways. Thank you. We hope you’re in good spirits and in good health.
WE’VE DONATED $150,000
Thank you to everyone who clicked to show their support for Pflag Canada and helped us quickly reach a $150,000 donation. This, in addition to the tablets and data plans we donated, will help Pflag Canada members stay connected, while staying apart.
If you’re able and wish to contribute, please join us in helping the LGBTQ2S communities.
TOGETHER, WE’VE HELPED PROVIDE
With your support, we’ve provided half a million meals to families in need. That’s amazing! We’re touched by the care you’ve shown. Thank you to all of our customers who generously donated.
And we’re not done yet! Supplies are still running low as more people are relying on food banks across Canada. If you’re able and wish to contribute, please join us.
WE’VE BEEN HEARING ABOUT WHAT OUR SUPPORT MEANS TO LOCAL PFLAG CHAPTERS, HERE ARE A FEW STORIES FROM ACROSS CANADA:
“Fido’s involvement and tablet offerings have come at a critical time when our Chapters required the tools and resources to ensure our communities had access to us. We are proud to continue this outreach during Pride, as we encourage our communities to connect with us digitally and celebrate.” - Omid Razavi, Director of Communications
“We are grateful for the generosity and show of support by Fido enabling health and wellness to our LGBTQ2S+ community members. We have scheduled [meetings] and are so looking forward to reconnecting. Thank you, Fido, for having pride and respect in our quest for equality, free of discrimination.” - Carolyn Hill
“[This donation] will allow virtual peer-support sessions to this vulnerable community who needs it now more than ever due to an increase in isolation. Thank you for recognizing the needs of our LGBTQ2S community and for providing practical ways for us to bridge the digital divide.” - Cyndi Sweeney, Chapter Leader
OUR KIND OF PEOPLE
As we continue living through this uncertain time, we are so proud of the Fido employees who are stepping up to help people in their communities. We are so thankful to be able to support those who are giving back and keeping people safe.
Many thanks to our employees. We’re proud of our team for stepping up during these times. It’s hard to believe that they’ve all been working together, but physically apart, for over 2 months to provide amazing support to our customers.
Salvatore D. helped a customer get set up to have video calls with his father who’s currently isolated in a retirement home.
Store managers Catherine L. and Christopher R., worked with Arnprior Hospital to quickly set up a virtual triage and assessment centre to help ease the strain on the emergency department.
