Skyjack recognized by Crime Stoppers with Cornerstone Award
March 14, 2023 By Don Horne
Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack was celebrated by Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington (CSGW) as the 2022 Cornerstone Award Winner.
Incorporated in 1988, CSGW is a non-profit charitable organization that coordinates the efforts of the media, the community and the police in promoting awareness and education, making the community safer.
“We’re thrilled to be named the 2022 Cornerstone Award Winner,” said Malcolm Early, Vice President of Marketing at Skyjack. “We were more than happy to get involved with this initiative. We look to get involved in community events like this not just from a support point of view, but also to get employees at Skyjack engaged whether it be on the day or a benefit from the program itself.”
A corporate partner of the organization, Skyjack hosts the annual Guelph Shredding Event at their Woodlawn Road plant, also covering the costs associated with the shredding service. In addition to fundraising, the event helps prevent identity theft and allows personal and business documents to be professional shredded. Skyjack’s central location, ample space and high visibility made for an ideal drive-thru shredding location.
“This is a true partnership that has grown from its initial concept of a stable place to conduct an awareness, crime prevention and fundraiser with Skyjack,” said Dave Elloway, Vice Chair of CSGW Board of Directors. “Skyjack has embraced the concept of preventing identity theft for itself as an organization and has encouraged staff to get behind the concept of protecting themselves and their families. Skyjack has become more than just a location for an annual event, they have embraced the opportunity to contribute to community safety.”
Announced during Crime Stoppers Month, the Cornerstone Award is presented annually to a business organization or individual who demonstrates outstanding support to their community through CSGW.
