TTC workers give back to the city they serve

10/25/13 6:00 AM

Last Sunday, more than 100 TTC staff gave up their leisure time to climb the CN Tower in aid of the United Way, one of a number of activities in which employees from all over the company are participating this year to raise cash for those less fortunate than themselves. It was not an easy climb, but it was great fun.

The TTC, in partnership with our unions, has a long and proud history of supporting the United Way of Greater Toronto because we see our role as much more than getting our customers from A to B. We want to give something back to the community that employs us.

Supporting the United Way is a good match for the TTC. Many of our chosen charity’s clients are also TTC riders and, much like transit, the United Way serves communities across our city.

As in previous years, we are holding a series of pizza days across our subway stations this fall. The money raised goes to the United Way, so please do stop by, say hi and buy a slice of pizza – it all supports a very good cause. In the last 10 years, TTC employees have raised millions of dollars for charity, much of it donated via payroll pledges as part of an annual campaign.

In addition, many TTC employees and pensioners serve the community in other ways, such as the military reserve or in community groups.

I am very proud of our staff and the extra mile they go to serve Toronto, both in their jobs and in their own time.
