SmartCell Supports Wrapped in Courage


November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month. This month and throughout the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence from November 25th- December 10th, we are accepting in-store donations of $2 in support of the Wrapped in Courage campaign and 60 participating violence against women shelters across Ontario. Our team is taking action to end gender-based violence and letting survivors know they are not alone! 

On November 25th, we will be wearing a purple scarf to show our support. The purple scarf is a symbol of the courage it takes a woman to leave her abuser. However, the courage of the woman is not enough. It takes the support of an entire community to end violence against women.

Violence continues to be the greatest gender inequality rights issue for women, girls and gender-diverse individuals. 1 in 3 women will experience gender-based violence in their lifetime and these numbers increase exponentially for black, Indigenous and women of colour. Supports are available across Ontario to provide assistance to survivors of gender-based violence and their children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Join us in our commitment to end #GBV by taking action!

Spirit Day at SmartCell

On October 21st, our SmartCell Team stood up to bullying and wore purple for #SpiritDay.

 

We accepted donations of $2 in support of GLAAD Spirit Day.

LGBTQ youth disproportionately face bullying and harassment because of their identities. Each year, millions go purple for Spirit Day to support LGBTQ youth in a united stand against bullying. Pledging to “go purple” on Spirit Day is a way for everyone — global and local brands and companies, world leaders, celebrities, neighbors, parents, classmates, and friends — to visibly show solidarity with youth and to take part in the largest, most visible LGBTQ anti-bullying campaign in the world.

The Greater Sudbury Cubs announced this week that for every goal a Cub player scores this season, SmartCell Communications will donate $10 to the Elgin Street Mission.

At a press conference earlier this week, Carly Comtois of SmartCell said the $10 figure was chosen because it is also the cost of feeding a single person in a single day.

“Cheering on a new hockey team, which is right down the street from our Sudbury SmartCell location, then every goal that they score we donate $10 – it just made too much sense,” said Comtois, the director of marketing services at SmartCell.

With a hashtag campaign called #OneGoalOneMealOneMission, the three organizations are committed to serving the community. The initiative will play as a part of the Sudbury Cubs Care Program as players will also be joining SmartCell Communications team members in food drives and meal service at the Mission.

SmartCell Communications is a founding partner of the Cubs and chose to partner with the Elgin Street Mission because “they have been on the frontlines with our community’s most vulnerable citizens since 1989,” Comtois said

“The Mission itself does not receive any regular government or city funding, but functions through the generosity of its community partners,” Comtois continued in the press release.

The entire project is supported by Steven Bowser, SmartCell Communications’ CEO, who will fly in from the company’s head office in Ottawa to take part in a ceremonial puck drop.

SmartCell in Partnership with The Safety Village


On September 18th & 19th SmartCell hosted a “virtual walk-a-thon” fundraiser in partnership with The Safety Village. We are thrilled to announce we raised $1,295 in donations. SmartCell Communications will be sponsoring Virtual Classes of up to 4,000 students during Fire Prevention Week in October.

A big thank you to everyone who participated and donated!

Annually, they provide onsite safety education programs to as many as 10,000 school children with the numbers constantly increasing. Since opening its doors, The Safety Village has provided safety education to more than 87,000 local school children as well as thousands of children and families attending numerous programs and events on and off site.

The Safety Village Mission:
Their mission is to deliver compelling hands-on educational opportunities to help our community–children, youth, adults and seniors–stay safe. Wherever they are and whatever they’re doing.

SmartCell Communications is proud to announce that we have officially become the Founding Partner of the new Sudbury Cubs!

Formerly the Rayside Balfour Canadians, now the Greater Sudbury Cubs, this is a Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League team that is experienced in community leadership, management and coaching — and with sights set on a championship.

Recently renamed the Cubs and moving from the small confines of Chelmsford Arena on the outskirts of town to the more spacious, fan friendly Countryside Arena in Sudbury which is a slap shot away from our Sudbury SmartCell location.

FRONT-LINE WORKER TICKET PROGRAM – Hospital staff, PSW’s, education staff, grocery staff will be able to access free tickets through the team’s new website portal that will provide up to 50 complimentary tickets to every Cubs home game.

CHARITY SUPPORT PROGRAM – Team staff and players will offer support to assist local non-profit and charitable organizations including: The ELGIN STREET MISSION – who’s fundraising promotion is featured on our new team website.

MINOR HOCKEY MENTORSHIP PROGRAM – Cubs’ coaches and players assisting volunteer coaches and young players by attending on-ice team practices. Specific plans have been made with a number of local associations including: Nickel City Minor Hockey, Sudbury Minor Hockey, Sudbury Playground Minor Hockey and Copper Cliff Minor Hockey.

NEW TEAM MASCOT IN THE WORKS – The Cubs will be staging a “Name the Mascot” contest with local schools to allow the youth of the community to submit their vote for the naming of the new team mascot.
