ENMAX employees are bringing Christmas cheer to many deserving people today. Armed with a donation of LED holiday lights from ENMAX Corporation, 30 ENMAX Elves are helping residents in the flood- ravaged areas of High River to decorate their homes for Christmas. The elves have brought ladders, extension cords, hooks and plenty of hot chocolate to get the job done. Photos, B-roll and audio clips of interviews will be available for media to
download from enmax.com by 3:30 p.m. today.
"Countless people lost many of the possessions stored in their basements, including all their Christmas decorations," said Tamera Van Brunt, Vice-President of Communications and Public Relations, ENMAX. "Delivering lights to decorate their homes, and even putting them up, is one small way we can hopefully brighten their holiday season."
Since the floods, over 230 ENMAX employees have volunteered 2,800 hours and counting to help neighbours, retirees and customers affected by the flood. Many of those same volunteers have signed up to help string lights over the holiday season. "I saw firsthand both the loss and the appreciation of flood victims as we helped clean out their homes in the flooded areas," said Jennifer Hamilton, employee volunteer, ENMAX. "I was excited to have the chance to go back and help light up these communities, and bring some good cheer."
So far this year, ENMAX employees have volunteered 480 hours to support a variety of holiday initiatives:
In total, ENMAX elves will provide 75,000 LED lights to light up the lives of Calgary and High River residents this holiday season.
