    Because Express London truly cares about the well being of our community, we are always looking for meaningful causes in our area. Below are just a few organizations we help through monetary, time, resource, or other donations:

  • Branding it Blue in 2024

    To help address the growing problem of food insecurity in our community, we will be partnering with local businesses on a food drive in support of the 28th London Cares Curb Hunger Campaign, running May 29- June 8. We recognize that proper and adequate nutrition is needed for employees to be productive and thriving in their workplace, so this initiative will be the focus for our annual Brand it Blue Campaign.

  • Earth Day Community Cleanup 2024going green community cleanup april 2024

    On April 22, we went green for Earth Day! Armed with eco-friendly garbage bags, litter pickers and gloves, team members made their way out into our neighbouring spaces to help restore some of the beauty and health of our surroundings. From Victoria Park to York Street, every outdoor area was ours for the cleaning. We are pleased to say that our second annual community cleanup was a success! Small steps make big footprints.


  • Collecting Donations for the Period Poverty Project

    The rising cost of feminine hygiene products means that many often go without. As a team of mostly women, we are keen to help other women in need, so we volunteered to be a drop off centre for the Period Poverty Project in the London area. period-poverty-project-image


    Until noon on March 17, you can drop off feminine products at our 300 Dundas St location. We are collecting the following: 

     

    • Tampons

    Help us make a positive difference in our community by supporting this valuable project.

     


  • fight-to-end-image-logo Fight to End Event November 2022

    This year, we joined the Fight to End event, in support of Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU), with the aim to end homelessness. YOU helps youth with access to health care, education and employment services and has developed an organization, Joan’s Place, to provide secure housing, mental health care, addition services, education and employment support to local youth, young mothers and mothers-to-be.

    On November 9, we cheered on local entrepreneurs, community leaders and politicians as they faced off in an amateur boxing tournament. We were impressed by the sheer skill of these warriors who pledged their time to the cause over the past few months and really got to “know the ropes”. We also enjoyed with a magnificent meal, great company and compelling conversation. From the meet and greet, to the silent auction, to the boxing matches – this was an event to remember!

    We are proud to have been a Cornerman Sponsor for the event and extend our congratulations to the fighters, trainers, organizers and donors involved.

  • Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraisingpretty_in_pink_part_`1-edited-resized

    On Wednesday, October 19, our team came together to support a fundraising efforts for Breast Cancer Awareness led by Franchise Owner Mike Elliott's daughter, Grace. Funds collected were contributed to our local "Pink the Towns" initiative which raises and contributes money to the Canadian Cancer Society. We're thrilled to share Grace raised over $1,500.

    In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we wore pink to celebrate those who survived breast cancer and to honour those who lost the battle to this prevalent disease. We encourage all to show their support and donate to this important cause.
