Guelph Humane Society Gala
Congratulations to the Guelph Humane Society for completing 125 years of servicing the animals in our community, we appreciate all your hard work and dedication. To celebrate, RLB supported and attended their 125th Anniversary Gala earlier in November. The event was a great success and together, the Guelph Humane Society raised over $66,000 for the community’s most vulnerable animals.
Firm Holiday Initiatives
The snow is falling, festive music is on, decorations are hung… ‘Tis the season! The holidays are a great way to show our love and appreciation towards the community. We know there are families and communities around us that may not be fortunate enough to celebrate the holidays in the same way most of us do. This is why we love giving back to our community!
- Once again this year, RLB has signed up for the Adopt-a-Family campaign, a program run by the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington. This initiative is designed to help families struggling to provide a nice holiday season for their children. This year, we were assigned a single mom with two boys aged 6 years and 6 months. The team provided monetary donations, clothes, toys, gift cards, and much more to this family. This is a great initiative that we have done over the years, and it feels great to know this family will have an amazing holiday!
- Nutrition for Education with Egg Farmers of Ontario
- This year we are supporting an education program that aligns well with RLB’s culture of continuous learning. Also, if there’s anything accountants love more than numbers, it’s food! Nutrition for Education is a program run by the Egg Farmers of Ontario that provides hard boiled eggs to schools, specifically in Wellington, Dufferin, and Kitchener/Waterloo, all year long. Our gift of $5,000 will support 23,000 eggs!
The team at RLB has been supporting the Movember Foundation, the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, addressing health issues that men face such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention. We have been supporting this cause for the last couple of years and we ran another Movember campaign this year! Our team members grew their best mustache, and to celebrate, we hosted an office bake-off at the end of the month. Together we raised over $900 for the Movember Foundation!

Guelph Gives… and RLB Gives, too
RLB celebrated our holiday initiative (noted above) with others participating in Guelph Gives. We challenge all of Guelph (individuals and small to large businesses) to become a part of this global movement! Follow what went on in Guelph through their social media posts on November 29 with #GuelphGives, @GivingTuesday, and @GuelphGives. Remember… it’s never too late to give!
Children’s Holiday Party
On Saturday, November 30th, we celebrated the holiday season over 80 RLB staff members and their little ones! The kids enjoyed an afternoon of food, games, crafts, face-painting, and a special visit from Santa!
