Correctional Service of Canada BBQ lunch
A big shout out to the team at Correctional Service of Canada who are always looking for innovative ways to raise funds for their campaign. Last week they had a BBQ lunch, but instead of gathering, they delivered to employees at multiple facilities. What a great idea! Thanks so much for the #locallove and support! #community #Campaign2020
