EllisDon – January 2018
EllisDon is an International construction company with a local office in Calgary that supports our annual Calgary Hitmen/ConnecTeen fundraiser. EllisDon started with a $5,000 donation to ConnecTeen in 2010 and have since supported the program having donated a total of $75,000.
ConnecTeen is a confidential peer support service for youth in Calgary and area. ConnecTeen offers peer support from our volunteers aged 15-21 through phone, text, chat and email.
Jeff Fox, Vice President & Area Manager of EllisDon’s Calgary office, says that EllisDon recognizes how important ConnecTeen services are for the youth of Calgary.
“Being a teen is tough and EllisDon knows that without the online services, 24 hour telephone/text support line, a lot of teens would not have the resources to talk to someone when they need help,” he says. “EllisDon is proud of our long tradition of giving back to our communities and feels that the Distress Centre is a very important cause. After all, teens become our future leaders.”
Distress Centre is grateful to have the continued support of EllisDon.
