SMS Engineering’s United Way workplace campaign was an event-filled week.
The Winnipeg-based engineering firm, which shares a birthday with United Way (happy 50th anniversary, SMS!), began their workplace campaign last week by hosting United Way agency speaker Denise Allard.
Denise is a client and volunteer with CNIB, and an advocate for people with disabilities.
“She told a fascinating story of her life. It was really good,” said SMS’s employee campaign chair and engineer-in-training Andrew Schinkel.
The week included events and activities like a Ukrainian lunch and putting green and basketball contests, and ended with a full breakfast Friday with bacon, pancakes, fruit and all the fixings.
“SMS has been a big supporter of United Way,” said Sponsored Executive Tamara Borgesen Kaminsky, who was interested to learn that SMS was involved in the design of United Way’s Main Street building.
Andrew was pleased with the participation of his co-workers.
“Ultimately it’s to give back to the community. To help others.”
Thank you, SMS, and happy birthday!
