We strive to build long lasting partnerships in our local communities to affect positive, sustainable change. At WIS International, giving back to the community means more than just a financial commitment – it means lending our time and resources.
Counting On A Cure
The San Diego-based WIS Counting on a Cure team, created numerous fundraising events including sales of home-baked goods, casual dress day stickers and custom team T-shirt sales. Team walkers joined over 15,000 others at the 5K Race for the Cure for an amazing experience. For achieving the team’s fundraising goal, WIS International contributed a company match!
Easter Seals Canada
The Toronto, Ontario area offices of WIS International were the second of 19 participating organizational fundraisers at this year’s 24 Hour Easter Seals Relay. Our team’s efforts enabled 30 physically disabled kids to attend camp who otherwise would not have been able to do so, bought six, brand- new wheelchairs that will provide some brave kids with improved mobility, independence and comfort. Seeing firsthand the joy and excitement on the faces of these unbelievable kids is a reward in and of itself.
Habitat for Humanity
The Home Depot Foundation makes an impact in thousands of communities through cash grants, product donations and thousands of hours of volunteerism by Home Depot associates and their vendors. The goal is to support non-profits that focus on repairing, remodeling and maintaining affordable housing for deserving families. John Weatherall, WIS International SVP of Customer Relations, had the honor of assisting a team of Atlanta Home Depot volunteers to completely frame, shingle and paint two homes in just two days!
