If you follow us on twitter, you know how important our good friends at Penske are. Every Wednesday night, our deliveries reach our clients thanks to the “Yellow Canary” or the “Snow Goose" -- one of the yellow or white trucks that Penske graciously makes available for us. On Move Ahead, the official Penske blog, they've just published a post on the partnership between our organizations. Here's a quick except:
“Without Penske, we would not be able to deliver the furniture to people in need in Ottawa. The Yellow Canary and the Snow Goose have given us the ability to help more people each year,” Maione said.
The company’s involvement doesn’t stop there.
“The Penske employees in Ottawa are amazing. They make sure I am safe every Wednesday night and that I have a great truck,” she said. “They volunteer with us on our bike team as mechanics and on our dragon boat team as paddlers.”
Darryl Munson, branch manager at Penske’s Ottawa location, said the company was drawn to HWF’s commitment to the community.
“The work Nathalie provides for our community is out of necessity; however, very few individuals take it upon themselves to provide it with the same enthusiasm and selflessness as Nathalie does,” Munson said. “We knew from the very beginning Nathalie was on to something very important.”
