Many companies support charities.
They might do it because they want to, they might do it because they have personal connections to the good cause, or they might do it just because they think they should and they think it looks good.
For us, it goes much deeper.
For us, supporting charities and being part of a global community is in our company’s – and people’s – DNA.
We support two charities as a corporation – World Vision and the Cyrus Centre.
World Vision is an amazing charity and we’re proud to support it. It’s a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice in nearly 100 countries. The charity’s goals align incredibly well with Phantom Screens’ purpose – and that’s why we support it.
Every team at Phantom Screens sponsors a child. And they’re actively engaged with them – writing letters, sending cards and small gifts and helping in a small way to ensure that the child can grow healthy, be educated and an integral part of their communities.
It really does make a difference – as you can see from these stories on World Vision’s website.
The Cyrus Centre is our local charity. It was created for vulnerable youth, to give them a starting point for a better tomorrow. Cyrus Centre responds to youth, age 18 and under, living in crisis, whose lives have become fractured and provides services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.
Phantom Screens supports it in a myriad of ways – from Bake Sales and Food Drives, to a sponsored team taking part in the Coldest Night of the Year walk. We also enjoy the company of their representatives at some of our Town Hall meetings to get personal updates from the charity.
We don’t want to brag, but the people at Phantom Screens are amazing and have raised over $200,000 for our corporate charities.
