'Tis the Season of Giving

'Tis the Season of Giving

Microserve gives back to the community

At Microserve we’re passionate about giving back to the communities we’re a part of. Every year at our three client parties and three staff parties we hold silent auctions and raffle draws to raise money for the causes and organizations we believe in. This year our staff and clients generously opened their hearts and donated almost $12000 to charities and many other great causes.

Each Microserve branch hosts a holiday party for all our staff and at each party we support a different charity as voted by Microservians. This year the Edmonton office chose to support the Edmonton Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and raised $655. The Victoria branch raised $525 for the Victoria Women’s Transition House Society and the Burnaby office will raise funds for the BC Children’s Hospital when we have our staff party in January.

In the spirit of giving back, Microserve President Spud Matthews matched the money raised at the staff parties dollar-for-dollar. So in the end we raised $1310 for the Edmonton Stollery Children’s Hospital and $1050 for the Victoria Women’s Transition House Society. While Burnaby is still to come!

But it doesn't stop there.

Our Edmonton branch sponsored two families this holiday season through the Christmas Bureau Hamper and thanks to their donations we were able to provide each family a full turkey dinner. Here’s to spreading more holiday cheer!

If you thought Microservians were generous, our amazing clients really have the holiday spirit.

Microserve wouldn't be where we are without a steady stream of top-notch IT grads from our colleges and universities. At our client parties we hold silent auctions that support scholarships for students at the University of Alberta, University of Victoria, and BCIT. This year our clients raised $2100 in Edmonton for UofA, $2020 in Vancouver for BCIT, and $4250 for UVic. Together our clients and vendor partners helped us raise $8,370 to support the next generation of IT students! We’re so grateful to have such generous customers and partners that continually support this great cause year after year.

On behalf of all Microservians, we wish you a happy Holiday Season.
