Mississauga Gives (Armagh House / Shoe Box Project)

CRH Canada’s Mississauga Plant is a proud sponsor of Armagh House – a second-stage housing program offering secure and affordable housing to abused women, with or without children, for up to one year. CRH provides financial sponsorship, but also hosts employee fundraising campaigns in our workplace. We help to raise awareness and funds in support of Armagh’s “Back to School” campaign, as well as providing gifts during the holiday season. The employees also host food and “peanut free” school snack drives throughout the year in support of the families at Armagh.

For the past several years, CRH Canada’s Mississauga Plant has also supported the Shoebox Project for shelters “which collects and distributes gifts in the form of shoeboxes to women who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness in communities across Canada and the U.S.” CRH employees raise funds and volunteer to fill decorated shoeboxes with items valued at $50 including toiletries, holiday treats, and gift cards.
