A Letter From Our President, Michael Grochmal

October 9, 2020 Seasonal

Dear friends,

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favourite times of the year. The fall colours never fail to provide a spectacular show, and as we move into the colder weather, I am reminded how grateful we are that AtlasCare is a trusted partner of customers like you. We are privileged to be welcomed to your home – thank you.

Gratitude has been on my mind a great deal this year. Despite the ongoing challenges with this stubborn virus, which is preventing us from simple joys like shaking hands and attending traditional gatherings with family and friends (which I’ll deeply miss this weekend), I am grateful every day.

First and foremost, I am truly grateful that the people I care about have been healthy and supportive of one another through this. I am thankful for the frontline professionals in our community – they have shown courage and compassion when they are exhausted and afraid. I am grateful for the community charities, volunteers and donors that are working tirelessly to help families get the relief they need right now. I am also grateful that our staff have stepped up in every imaginable way to support our customers in this unusual time. Their actions have made me proud time and again.

This weekend, our team will experience the pleasure of joining Lennox International’s “Feel The Love” community giving initiative. On Saturday, an AtlasCare crew will help make life a little easier for a very deserving essential worker in our community who has selflessly put the needs of others ahead of herself for years. It is our honour to give her this gift, which includes a Lennox furnace and air conditioner, extensive plumbing repairs and an annual AtlasCare Membership to handle maintenance requirements down the road. We will share more about her story with you soon. Thank you to our customers for your nominations – there were many deserving candidates.

There is no joy greater than the joy of giving to others, especially at a time when we are feeling grateful for everything we have. From my family to yours, I extend my sincere best wishes for good health, safety and wellbeing.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Michael Grochmal,

President
