Mayfair Helps Women in Need Over the Holidays

Tue, 11/29/2016

At Mayfair, we produce the clearest, most accurate radiological images possible, yet we are not at our core, in the business of medical imaging. We are in the business of taking care of people. We have compassion for those in need and work with a desire to make a difference in someone else’s life. It’s a big reason why this holiday season, we teamed up with Calgary’s Women in Need Society (WINS) and donated a cheque for $25,000.

WINS is Calgary’s homegrown thrift charity founded in 1992 to provide basic needs to women in poverty and their families. From their humble beginning, WINS has grown from one thrift store to four stores and a central distribution centre. Today, people from all walks of life frequent their thrift stores knowing their purchases and donations are making a real difference.

“With over 80 percent of our workforce female, we wanted to partner with a cause close to our hearts. Calgary’s WINS is a perfect fit and an excellent opportunity for us to fulfill our core purpose of helping others,” says Dr. Illya Boridy, Executive Chair, Mayfair.

Whether WINS is helping women and their family’s transition from homelessness, leave abusive relationships, or welcome newcomers to Canada, the not-for-profit strives to provide women with the resources, knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to achieve self-sufficiency.

“On behalf of all the women we serve, thank you so much for this generous donation! We have seen a significant increase in the number of women and families that we are serving this year and this donation will ensure that we can continue to provide basic needs such as clothing, furniture and household goods to women in need, as well as provide them support to meet educational and employment goals. Thank you for supporting Calgary women and their families,” says Laura Dickson, Executive Director, WINS.
