Direct Energy Corporate volunteers energize client party Queen Site December 2009/2010
For a second year in a row, Direct Energy (DE) Corporate Volunteers descended on CAMH’s Annual Client Holiday party in December to help decorate, serve punch, play games, and serve the dinner to clients.
“This is our holiday party,” said Janice Thomson, Direct Energy Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Communications. The corporate volunteers from DE understand the importance of connecting with the CAMH Community and in fact forego their own holiday party to help out CAMH’s client party!
Bill Markakis, Recreation Therapist with Centre Wide Recreation recognized the efforts of DE in helping to make a positive connection between clients and the community. “I was deeply moved by the compassion and care that the volunteers demonstrated and I felt that they gave clients something they often don’t get, hope. Hope that people care and that they matter!”
