SigNature Developments celebrated Christmas a little early with a donation of multiple bags of winter clothing they presented to the Salvation Army. What an amazing concept, and a great way for a developer and the community to reach-out to people in need… especially after the economic conditions of the past year. Bravo SigNature.
Residents of the area have been dropping off their bags of clothing at the Triumph North condominium project for the past three weeks trying to make winter a little warmer for those less fortunate.
“We understand the challenges that many have faced over the past year and wanted to help the Salvation Army assist as many residents in the area as possible,” says Daniela Di Battista, SigNature’s manager of sales and marketing.
Hosting a festive afternoon of treats and Christmas carols, SigNature welcomed people from the area who brought in their many bags of new or gently used winter clothing. Children posed for a photo with Santa beside the Christmas tree which they took home and nibbled on cookies and candy canes throughout the afternoon.
The highlight of the day was when Ms. Di Battista welcomed Major Brian Bishop of the Central York Region Salvation Army and presented him with the multiple bags of clothing in addition to a cheque (pictured above).
“At SigNature, we believe in the importance of true participation in the community and saw this time of year as ideal to reach out,” said Ms. DiBattista. “We are overwhelmed by the tremendous support of the people of Schomberg who have brought all these clothes.”
“We, at the Salvation Army, are sincerely grateful when residents from the community come together in this way to assist those that need a hand particularly at this time of year,” said Major Bishop. He added that companies like SigNature do make a difference and thanked them for their enthusiasm with such a successful clothing drive.
