December 8, 2020, Winnipeg – Two Winnipeg charities received an unexpected gift today from McCOR Management and the owners of 330 Portage (CCI Corpfin Capital & Kingsett Capital) on behalf of the Tenants at 330 Portage Avenue this holiday season.
“This has been a unique year for us all, both personally and professionally, in our communities and in our homes” said Gord Wiebe, CEO and Principal of CCI Corpfin Capital. “However, this hasn’t stopped the season of giving and goodwill. We couldn’t think of a better, more genuine way to express our thanks and appreciation to the people and tenants who we are fortunate to build relationships with year-round.”
Every year, the McCOR Team purchase physical gifts for Tenants and this year, in the midst of a global pandemic, wanted to express their appreciation by a donation on behalf of the Tenants that will help the local Winnipeg community. The two charities that will receive a donation this year are the Christmas Cheer Board of Winnipeg and the Siloam Mission.
“It’s important in times of uncertainty to ensure that all people, even the less fortunate, are prepared for the season ahead whether it be warm clothes and a hot meal, or a way to provide a holiday meal for their families and loved ones,” said Wiebe. “It is with great pleasure we were able to do something this year that promotes not only our Tenant appreciation but helps the community in these times.”
The Christmas Cheer Board Winnipeg has been in operation for over 100 years, and each year a team of dedicated volunteers collect, sort and deliver hampers of food and gifts to approximately 18,000 families who find themselves in a bit of a struggle over the holiday season.
The Siloam Mission provides residents living in poverty, with many being homeless, to provide services such as an emergency shelter, warm clothing, hot meals, health care, and transitional services to stable living.
This year has been a difficult time for all of us, which is why now more than ever it’s important to be there for each other, lend a hand and spread the magic of the holiday season.
