Each year the staff of Grand River Employment And Training (GREAT) and the Ongwehoweh Skills and Trades Training Centre (OSTTC) participate in a voluntary Dress Down Campaign which allows staff to “dress down” for $1.00 every Friday.
In addition to dress down, proceeds from the annual golf tournament 50/50 draw are added. Toward the end of the campaign, participating staff make recommendations to management regarding what on-reserve organization/agency they feel would benefit from their contribution. Past recipients have been SN Christmas Baskets, the Iroquois Lodge, Agape, and the SN Community Food Bank, just to name a few.
The 2013 Dress Down campaign recipients are Ganohkwasra – Next Step Housing (Gayenawahsra’).
The Executive Director of GREAT Elvera Garlow was proud to present the largest amount collected to date ($1,518.50) to the Executive Director of Ganohkwasra Sandra Montour.
The contribution will go towards the Next Step Housing Christmas festivities.
On behalf of the families at Next Step Housing, Ms. Montour expressed her gratitude to the GREAT and OSTTC staff for their generous contribution. (Submitted Photo)
