In the community
CareGo has a long history of providing support to community projects and charitable initiatives, both through dollars raised and through the volunteer involvement of its staff. In 2016 the annual CareGo charity golf tournament for customers, suppliers and staff raised $23,700 for a local neighbourhood association serving low-income residents.
Charities that have benefitted from CareGo involvement include the Robert Land Community Association and its Literacy Express project, the United Way of Greater Hamilton and Burlington and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
In addition, the extended family of president and CEO Demetrius Tsafaridis has made a $100,000 pledge over five years in support of a fitness and wellness centre in Hamilton’s north end named for their father and grandfather, Foti Tsafaridis.
