Children's Foundation Visionary
The impact that Contract Express LTD has made in our community is incredible and it is evident that they are truly committed to supporting families in need in Guelph and Wellington. Jennifer O'Neil, Contract Express Partner and VP, recently shared that recognizing what she and her husband took for granted and what they are able to provide their own children, inspired them to get involved with the Foundation. "It's our job to help children see that there are opportunities out there...whatever you can do...every piece you can give will hopefully enlighten someone else's life." In 2017 they were recognized for their longstanding support. Jennifer O’Neil and others share more on why supporting local children is so important in this video:
Contract Express has been involved with the Children’s Foundation since 2008 as a proud sponsor of the annual Around the World Gala. Their sponsorship helped establish the gala as a key fundraiser for the Foundation. In 2010, Contract Express was recognized as the Corporate Sponsor of the Year and in 2017 they celebrated their 10th anniversary as a sponsor for the event.
Contract Express has been innovative in supporting us by providing some unique outreach opportunities. This includes featuring the Children’s Foundation logo on the back of 30 of their trucks, spreading the word about the Foundation throughout the community. In 2017, they sponsored a Guelph Storm Children's Foundation game in November, 2017. Helping build our brand and increasing awareness within our community means more families are informed of our programs and how we can help. We can always count on Contract Express to lend a helping hand and a truck when we need it. They have assisted with transporting supplies and provided the all-important flatbed truck for a Santa Claus Parade float. They have always come through for us.
It was a family affair when Contract Express sponsored a Guelph Storm Game in 2017.
In 2013, the Children's Foundation collaborated on a Santa Claus parade float with Pablo's World of Cartoons. Contract Express provided the flatbed truck.
