Finding ways to give back to the community is an important part of the JWC philosophy.
Canadian Blood Services work to collect and distribute blood throughout Canada to those who are in need. On February 21, 2019, 15 members of the JWC family attended a local blood drive in Kitchener to do their part. As a group, our staff donated 6.75L of blood, which is nearly 15 units.

Beginning August 1st JWC staff began collecting backpacks, school supplies and monetary donations to support our community. Proceeds of the drive will be provided to local children in need as they return to school. Once again, JWC staff showed up in spades! Monetary donations exceeded $250 and school supplies and backpacks provided were enough to supply to over 30 children.
On June 5th, 2018, our CFO, James and our CTO, William are participating in a charity golf tournament in support of the Grand River Hospital Foundation. JWC is sponsoring the event, which includes a day of golf at Rebel Creek Golf Club and an evening silent auction.
With the traditional “season of giving” behind us, JWC’s social committee decided to organize a month-long food drive for the month of May. To up the ante, the social committee set weekly goals to be hit for pounds of food donation. In addition, each dollar donated translates into 4 pounds of food. Week after week our team continues to surpass the goals set by the social committee! The employees of JWC donated a total of $800 and more than 230 pounds of food.
During the Easter weekend our CTO, William participated in a charity hockey tournament in support of the Wounded Warriors Foundation of Canada. JWC donated a company prize to the silent auction where the winning bid was over $150!
