The Season of Giving
Listen to this post
As we approach the holiday season, we often look for various opportunities to give back to society. Over the years we have had the honour and pleasure of providing web and/or IT services for various charities and non-profits and are proud of the amazing work these companies and organizations do in the Hamilton community.
In the spirit of giving, we thought we would share a few links to help you find donation and volunteering opportunities:
