Lug participates in support of healthy moms and babies! Mark your calendars for Sept 27th, 2015 at Earl Bales Park! Sinai Health System’s Mount Sinai Hospital began as a maternity hospital and has grown into one of Canada’s busiest birthing centres. Over the years, clinical and scientific advances have advanced the frontiers of maternity care and newborn care – and Mount Sinai has been at the forefront of that change. With the largest perinatal centres program of its kind in Canada, Mount Sinai treats some of the most complicated pregnancies. Patients from across Canada seek out our leading experts, who are internationally renowned in their field.
Each summer, the Jays Care Foundation, in partnership with Toronto Community Housing, runs Rookie League, a summer-long baseball day-camp. The program is open to participants between the ages of 6-13. Over 1,100 youth from 56 Toronto Community Housing neighborhoods developed their baseball skills through weekly drills, games, and tournaments throughout July and August.
We at Lug® are lucky enough to participate in the Rookie League Wrap-Up at the Rogers Centre, where Rookie Leaguers enjoy an awards ceremony and lunch, and are handed custom Jays backpacks stuffed full of school supplies and dental supplies, sure to help these kiddos start the school year off with a bang!
Awesome event. Awesome cause. Awesomely fun time!
Located on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince Haiti, Zanmi Beni, is home to over sixty children that were either too young or physically and/or mentally handicapped, and incapable of helping themselves after the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010.
Zanmi Beni, “blessed friend” in Creole, is committed to “doing whatever it takes” to provide these children a loving environment where they will flourish and grow to have safe and happy lives.
Each child received a personalized Lug® backpack, pencil case, lunch bag, pencils, and a notebook.
We are so happy to be able to be a part of something so incredible!
During the week of March 19 through March 27, 2012 Lug® set up a “pop-up shop” in The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Through this event, 15% of the proceeds from Lug®’s sales went to the SickKids Foundation to fund child health research, learning and care.
With a mission to "inspire our communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world," the SickKids Foundation is exactly the kind of organization that Lug® supports and loves to partner with.
The Wayne Gretzky Foundation’s mission is to provide less fortunate youth with the opportunity to experience the sport of hockey. The foundation (and Lug®!) believes that hockey instills many positive life skills and contributes to the physical, emotional and social growth of young people. For the past two years, Lug® has contributed custom products that were enjoyed by both celebrity players and attendees at the annual Wayne Gretzky Fantasy Camp where proceeds benefited the foundation.
When Wayne Gretzky calls, Lug® answers!
