CEL’s Calgary team serves up the spirit of giving

The team at CEL Electrical Contractors is used to lighting up buildings. But they all agree that nothing compares to the feeling of lighting up the faces of young families ahead of the holiday season.

In what has become an annual tradition, staff from CEL’s Calgary office played the role of Santa’s little helpers, serving up food and smiles at the Louise Dean Centre’s Christmas dinner. The children were thrilled as Santa Claus made a special appearance, and brought a sack of gifts. Once he’d seen all of the children, Santa even made time for the big kids from CEL.

The Louise Dean Centre is a school dedicated to the unique needs of pregnant teens and young mothers. It provides valuable services and a supportive environment that allows these students to continue with their education – within a safe, nurturing environment for newborns and young children. The program is operated through a partnership between Catholic Family Services (CFS) and the Calgary Board of Education.

Patricia Jones, CEO of Catholic Family Services appreciates the ongoing work CEL does on behalf of CFS.

“The CEL crew is fantastic. They are very understated. They show up to do their job without fanfare. We are so lucky to have them,” Jones beamed.

In addition to volunteering their time to the Louise Dean Centre, CEL is proud to lend its financial support to this incredible organization.

Across the country, CEL and its employees take great pride in supporting the communities where they work and call home. On behalf of the entire team, from Alberta to Ontario, CEL wishes you and yours a warm and magical Merry Christmas.
