Smart Panda - Curl for Kids - Big Brothers Big Sisters

In Like A Lion Out Like A Panda?

March really presented another extremely interesting month of weather for us.  Running in shorts, Biking in heavy gear, and flipflops to toques, you just don’t know what to do.

The good news is we got lots of running in, a little biking, and a lot of great service work.  The most exciting of which was the Curl For Kids Big Brothers Big Sisters event this month.  As we mentioned last month The Smart Panda – is the title sponsor for Big Brothers Big Sisters St Thomas Elgin this year, and this was the first event where we had our flyers!  Our curling team “Hockey Night in Panada” went out and tried our best, unfortunately we struggled to find our groove, but we had no problem having some fun!  In the end the event raised over 15,000 dollars for Big Brothers Big Sisters so they can run their amazing mentorship programs!  We are truly honoured to be able to partner with such a great organization.

The St Thomas Railway City Rotary Club and The Smart Panda were serving up some hot delicious food at Inn-Out-of-the-Cold this past month.  There is a huge need for support in our community as there are too many people that are struggling to get by, the last time we were out we served a record number of meals for the program.  I challenge everybody out there to just do something to help, it could be a simple gesture of cleaning out the closet and putting some unworn clothing in a bag and donating it, to spending some time helping out a program, to giving a couple of dollars instead of having another coffee, it all makes a difference.
