Intelex Gives Back – May 2016 Update

The Intelex Gives Back Committee is focused on giving back to society in meaningful and impactful ways. The month of May saw the launch of a partnership with Canadian Blood Services as well as a five day campaign to raise funds for Fort McMurray.

Due to our world-class medical facilities, Toronto has a greater demand for blood than anywhere in Canada, but only 3% of the Canadian population donates on a regular basis. Intelex has formed a partnership with Canadian Blood Services (CBS) to ensure Intelexians are given time every quarter to head down the street and donate. With our first event being held last week, CBS received 50 pints which allowed them to exceed their daily quota of 44 pints per day. CBS has expressed their gratitude toward this initiative and we are looking forward to this partnership moving forward. Learn more about the people Intelexians are helping hereRead more...

Intelex and CAMH hit the hardwood for a great cause during NBA All-Star weekend!

On Friday, February 12th, the Intelex Gives Back club officially launched partnership with Toronto’s Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).  The CAMH Corporate Sports Challenge combined with athletes from Intelex provided CAMH clients with an opportunity to experience the fun and enjoyment of learning about and participating in organized sports – especially as teammates with corporate sports teams.

The clients had  an opportunity to learn new skills and further develop skills they already possess. The event focused on a sense of belonging to a community and increase feelings of “normalization”. These events go a long way in helping everyone decrease the stigma associated with mental illnesses and further develop partnerships between CAMH and the community. The Intelex Gives Back club will be partnering with CAMH moving forward and will be involved in a number of events throughout the year.
