Local MPPs participate in visits: “Small gestures help to lift spirits.”
July 9, 2020 / Brampton, Ontario – Over the past two months GotSkill? representatives have been visiting frontline workers across the Province to show their appreciation and thanks by dropping off coffee, donuts and/or pizza for the staff. Staff of the Ontario gaming company along with the local Member of Provincial Parliament made recent visits to first responders and to a seniors’ residence in the greater Toronto area.
Tony Carvalho, GotSkill? president, explains the goodwill initiative, “We want to show our continuing support for essential workers and healthcare staff who have been working around the clock through this pandemic. It has been great to have local elected representatives join us on our visits. We have found that the workers really appreciate talking with their MPP.”
“Small gestures help to lift spirits – and this is particularly true these days,” says Carvalho.
Richmond Hill MPP Michael Parsa joined GotSkill? representatives to visit independent living residence Meta Centre, and the staff of Community Living York South. MPP Parsa says, “The visits with GotSkill? were a great opportunity to show our appreciation to the frontline workers who have been keeping us safe and healthy through the pandemic. The selfless acts of our frontline workers have ensured that our local communities across Ontario continue to receive the care, necessities of life, and goods and services they need. This was a great initiative to recognize the tremendous debt of gratitude we owe to our amazing frontline workers.”
Another recent visit was to the Regional Paramedic Station in Streetsville where Mississauga-Streetsville MPP Nina Tangri accompanied Tony Carvalho to thank to local paramedics. “I was pleased to be able to take part in an initiative thanking our local paramedics for the incredible work they have done for our community over the past months,” says MPP Tangri. “Thank you to GotSkill? for this expression of gratitude to our frontline heroes. It is initiatives like this that show the true Ontario Spirit and will allow our province and communities to emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever.”
Earlier in June, the GotSkill? president was pleased to make a cheque presentation to Boots on the Ground, a non-profit organization providing peer support to first responders in the GTA. This presentation and photos of many of the frontline visits can be found GotSkill? Donation Journal/Gallery on the company website.
