s a College, ABM is always striving to do the best for its students, employees, and the community at large. To commemorate the college’s 11th Anniversary, various initiatives were undertaken in March and April.
True to its belief that altruism begins at home, ABM College raised donations for the ongoing crisis in Ukraine to help people through the Canadian Red Cross, organized a staff blood donation drive in collaboration with the Canadian Blood Services, and supported those in need.
The Ukraine donation was initiated when one of our employees at ABM, Tamila Pryz, expressed that she was worried for her family members back home in war-hit Ukraine. Tamila Pryz’s mother, Liudmyla Svynarchuk, was forced to flee her home in Ukraine due to Russia’s invasion. She managed to escape and arrived in Canada on March 9, 2022, after facing many hardships.
The money raised contributed to the Canadian Red Cross’s efforts to respond to humanitarian needs, such as preparedness, immediate and ongoing relief efforts, overall long-term recovery, and other necessary needs as they arise given the situation. You can read more about Tamila and her mother’s story in the Calgary Herald.
The donations raised for Ukraine were also matched dollar to dollar by ABM to contribute as much as possible to this humanitarian cause. With staff donations and the matched amount, ABM College was able to raise $4,200 CAD altogether. The college was proud to present this amount to a representative of the Canadian Red Cross on April 6, 2022.
To promote giving back to the community even further, ABM College collaborated with the Canadian Blood Services for this noble cause. The blood donation drive was held on April 7 to coincide with and acknowledge World Health Day, a global health awareness day under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Collectively, staff members of ABM College who signed up and were eligible to donate their blood ultimately hope that their blood can save a life. By sharing the act of donating blood, ABM College hopes to inspire others to initiate some philanthropic acts.
