LEAMINGTON, ON - For Highline Mushrooms, being a strong company goes beyond just dollar signs and bottom lines, but instead extends to the community at large. Each year, the company hosts a family picnic, where Highline supports a variety of local community initiatives. For 2017, Highline announced a $50,000 donation to the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation (WECAF), which was then allocated towards the organization’s Leamington Homework and Back to School Programs.
“Highline is committed to supporting all of the local communities where we operate,” shared CEO Aaron Hamer upon announcing this year’s donation. “We are thrilled to support an organization like the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation to give as many children as possible a chance to be on an equal footing.”
According to a press release, the goal behind Highline’s generous donation was to both provide the area’s children with essential school supplies, as well as helping to foster self-confidence and academic performance. Supporting and being involved in various local community programs has been, and continues to be, an important mandate for Highline, and with this donation, the company says it hopes to bring a positive impact to the children of Essex County.
“Giving kids in difficult situations the tools to succeed, as simple as a backpack with all of the necessary school supplies, or a safe space to get tutored and do homework with the most up-to-date technology, is consistent with our values at Highline,” Hamer added.
