Holiday Greetings 2021
Please note: Our offices will be closed from December 24th, 2021 until January 3rd, 2022.
Well, another trip ‘round the sun is almost complete, and what a ride it’s been! Another rollercoaster year of living through a pandemic; working remotely, manning the front lines, social distancing, handwashing, mask-wearing, getting vaccinated, then finally going out again, gathering with friends and family only to brace for the next variant of concern and what havoc it may wreak. COVID-19 all but canceled Christmas last year and this year was looking a little more optimistic until Omicron.
‘Tis the season, maybe this year more than ever… for connecting and catching up, for good food with good friends and family. It is also a time for giving and sharing, a time for thinking of others and of those less fortunate, a time to give thanks for all that we have, and a time to reflect on the year gone by.
BCL Consulting Group Inc. is very grateful for our clients. 2021 has been a difficult year for so many which is why, instead of tokens of our appreciation, BCL is giving back. We will, again this year, donate to the Calgary Food Bank, the Strathcona Food Bank, Food Banks of Saskatchewan and the Canadian Mental Health Association.
We believe that giving back to the community is a way of paying it forward, helping our world become a better, kinder, gentler, and safer place now and throughout the coming year. We are all in this together and it is only together that we will get through this!
We are proud to continue our service work in the community during the holiday season with the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign in Calgary, and sponsoring families through the Christmas Bureau Hamper in Edmonton.
Beyond Christmas, our staff is involved with Meals on Wheels in Calgary and Sherwood Park on a weekly basis, helping deliver meals to seniors and those unable to make healthy meals for themselves. We volunteer, as needed, with The Mustard Seed in Edmonton, Hope Mission, Sleep in Heavenly Peace – Canada, The Poppy Campaign, CB Rescue, and even COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics.
BCL Consulting has sponsored staff participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure and the MS Bike Tour, as well as making donations to various other charities including the Canadian Cancer Society, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and the Sarcoma Cancer Foundation of Canada.
If you are thinking about a charitable donation this year, we invite you to consider any of the many worthy organizations we have spotlighted.
At this time, we would like to wish you and yours a very happy Holiday Season and all the best for a safe and prosperous New Year!
Don, Wendy, and the BCL Team!
