2022 Veritas Foundation
Spring Food Drive

We're proud to say that Veritas staff, family and friends raised $3,590 for the 2022 Veritas Foundation Spring Food Drive. This was our most successful food drive to date. Proceeds went to the Weston Area Emergency Support (WAES) in Toronto. 

Diana Stapleton, Chair of the WAES Steering Committee, told us, “We have been running short of food due to the high need, and summer is a time when most people are not thinking of donating to food banks.  Your donation will help us to fill the hampers we distribute to over 180 families each week.  The food you donated represented about 7,200 meals!”

Veritas Foundation
Ukraine Emergency Relief Campaign

The Veritas Foundation is raising emergency relief funds for people in Ukraine. 

The war in Ukraine has resulted in a significant loss of life and mass displacement. The conflict that began in 2014 has uprooted millions of people from their homes and destroyed livelihoods.

Millions are in immediate need of humanitarian aid, and the numbers are expected to rise much further as the war continues.

 

Donations are still weldome

 

All funds will be directed to the Red Cross Ukraine Emergency Fund which will be matched by the Federal Government. 



2021 Holiday Season

The staff at Veritas and their families helped raise money for two charities during the holiday season.

First, We are the Villagers is a charity based in Midland, Ontario it serves 625 children in 26 communities in Northern Ontario. Whether it be hockey, baseball, dance, piano lessons, art lessons, or more, the charity will cover the costs of fees and equipment. We raised $3,000 for WATV. Here is an article about its programs.

Second, the staff at Veritas once again organized to provide meals and food for our local food banks to support those in need during the holiday season. We raised $2,350 which went directly to our food shopping efforts.

Buddies 28th Annual Charity Golf Tourney for Cancer: 
September 2021

In 1994, the North West Devils were awarded $500 for winning the Bill Bolton Consolation Men’s Hockey Championship. Excited and not knowing what to do with the bounty, they decided to put the funds towards a golf tournament and BBQ. The event was so successful it is a ritual called The Buddies Open. 

Nearly the entire original Devils continue to take part in the tourney (though none have ever won), and much has changed. Most notably, the bachelors have become fathers making their wives and children part of the Buddies. That is what makes it special.

For the September 2021 tournament, 59 donors raised a net $11,000 for Camp Oochigeas, Northern Ontario Families of Children With Cancer, Childhood Cancer Canada, Gilda's Club of Greater Toronto, Homes4Hope, Behind Greatness, and NepalAbility.

Over the years, The Buddies Open has raised more than $80,000 for cancer charities. Veritas is a proud sponsor.
