Each year, for the holiday season; we like to honour our clients who show so much commitment to us, that we have become their go-to store for all of their lighting needs, and their home décor items too! To celebrate and honour our clients, we give a financial donation to an organization that we wish to support. These organizations speak to our hearts. They represent children who need help with their challenges, both physical and mental; children who are experiencing ill-health; adults attempting to make the huge contribution to solving the illness that is cancer; and children who wish for enrichment in their lives in after school programs- including educational and recreational activities. Our hearts are warmed by the assistance our money gives to these organizations, and the goals they can achieve because of it. Some of the organizations that we have donated to in the past, are:
Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club
In lieu of Christmas gifts for 2018 we made a donation to the @tkbgc, an organization close to our hearts. The Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club is an amazing organization that provides children and youth a safe place to learn, grow, experience opportunities and overcome barriers to help build confidence and develop life skills. Our donation is going to send the awesome leaders on the Youth Advisory Squad to the Youth Summit in Montreal. We hope they have a great time! This video makes us excited about our future leaders!

For two years, our donations were given to Shalva, an amazing organization that assists its clients and the clients families with all of the tools it needs to work with the special needs, to allow them to function with as little difficulty as possible.
Israel Cancer Research Fund
ICRF, a previous organization to receive a financial donation, is committed to fund doctors who do research to find a cure(s) for cancer. They have made some absolutely amazing discoveries and contributions to dealing with this horrible illness.
Sick Children’s Hospital
Sick Children’s Hospital is a world-renowned hospital that deals with children’s health each and every day of the year. Universal Lighting was happy to have chosen the hospital as one of the donation recipients.
