Nutrien’s Generous Donation Sparks Joy for TLC@Home’s 2023 Campaign
In the spirit of community and generosity, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Nutrien for stepping up as a 2023 School Sponsor. This contribution has earned Nutrien the title of School Sponsor, ensuring that an entire Saskatoon community school, from Kindergarten to Grade 8, will be enveloped in the warmth of holiday cheer.
TLC@Home, initiated in 2006 by Shelley James of The Hairstyle Inn Salons, began as a humble endeavour to bring joy to one Saskatoon community school. Over the years, the campaign has blossomed with the support of partners and sponsors like Nutrien, creating a tradition of giving that has touched the lives of over 950 students annually in schools such as Princess Alexandra Community School, St. Michael Community School, King George Community School, Pleasant Hill Community School, and Howard Coad in Saskatoon.
Chrissy Judaya, a Nutrien employee, captured the essence of their contribution perfectly, stating,
“We are happy to know that our sponsorship could actually cater to the entire school. I can only imagine the smiles on the kids’ faces!!”
