On April 2nd, MaxSys, a professional staffing and solutions firm, made a generous donation to Shepherds of Good Hope (SGH) in order to help the homeless who are in desperate need. During this time of the COVID-19 crisis, the homeless are at high risk, so MaxSys felt that it’s incumbent on them as citizens to help.
MaxSys has been involved with SGH since 1993, and they make donations about 10 times a year before each long weekend, but this particular donation felt extra special. “We feel it is a cause that treats people in need that are in our community”, said Dr. Bryan Brulotte, CEO & Chairman at MaxSys. “The nature of the support and assistance they (SGH) provide is immediate lifesaving care. During the current COVID-19 pandemic, [the homeless population] are a highly vulnerable population and at high risk”, added the 1995 Telfer EMBA graduate.
MaxSys and Shepherds of Good Hope have had a connection for 27 years
“Bryan Brulotte of MaxSys Staffing and Consulting is one of our most long-term donors, with a partnership that goes back well over 2 decades,” said Deirdre Freiheit, President and CEO at SGH. “As our neighbour in the Byward Market, the cause of homelessness is close to Bryan’s heart, and he and his team have supported us in many ways, including monetary donations, volunteering and advocacy efforts around veterans’ homelessness”.
We urge the community to reach out to SGH if they are able to help support the cause during this pandemic through monetary donations mainly, but personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies are also key for their employees.
