Intelex Bakes in Support of “Raising the Village”

This week Intelex’s Charity Bake Sale Team held another successful bake sale for a fantastic charitable organization, Raising the Village.

The team of bakers outdid themselves this time, with a mouthwatering spread that included cinnamon buns, M&M cookies, mini crème brûlées, banana bread, homemade pop tarts, mango bars, cookie dough donuts, oatmeal cookies, coconut macaroons and more!

Everyone who made a purchase received some great literature about the cause at hand, and when the money was counted up at the end of the day, the amount raised was $600! Intelex is generously matching the bake sale team’s efforts, meaning we’re able to donate $1,200 total! That’s a lot of awareness, and a lot of impact for one bake sale!

To put it into perspective, Raising the Village estimates that $100 will provide 12 children with a desk in their classroom, allowing them the opportunity to sit and learn. $1,000 … Read more...

A Sweet Cause: Intelex Bake Sale Supports the Toronto Humane Society

On February 18 at 2:00pm, Intelex employees flooded the 6th floor kitchen area for an afternoon treat: the first Intelex Charity Bake Sale of 2014! Among the delicious desserts on display were cupcakes, homemade donuts, fudge, cookies, and cake pops. More than enough sugar to fuel the company through the rest of the afternoon!

Intelex loves to support local charities, and the beneficiary of this particular bake sale – the Toronto Humane Society – is an especially meaningful one for many Intelexians. We’re a company full of animal lovers! (You can check out pictures of Intelex’s “Bring Your Dog to Work Day” if you don’t believe us!)

We were lucky to have Michelle from Intelex’s Finance department bring in Tido to act as our official bake sale mascot. An adorable little mixed Yorkie, Tido was adopted from the Humane Society when he was just 8 months old after … Read more...

Baking for a Good Cause: Intelex Donates to Local Charity

We’re pleased to announce that our most recent Intelex Charity Bake Sale raised $458 for local not-for-profit housing provider, Homes First!

For those of you who have never heard of Homes First, they’ve been serving Toronto’s chronically homeless since 1983 by providing stable living environments and access to social services. Sadly, there are over 5,000 people in Toronto that do not have a safe and stable place to live. This is why the work that Homes First does is so crucial, especially as the weather gets colder and it gets more dangerous to be out on the streets.

This is a cause that’s close to our hearts, as one of Homes First’s sixteen buildings is located right around the corner from our offices. Strachan House is made up of seventy-six units for single adult men and women and is a first step for those who are trying to get … Read more...
