Our Community - Positive and Lasting Contributions
Universal Rail Systems’ emphasis on employee-driven community investments is an important part of our culture. We believe in our people, and they believe in our larger team to get behind them and their efforts to make positive and lasting contributions in Canadian communities.
Our Canadian Railways have a proud legacy of connecting farmers and communities by helping to feed all Canadians! Universal Rail Systems is continuing this proud tradition by beginning our corporate partnership across Canada with Breakfast Club of Canada. This is a group dedicated to nourishing our next generation's potential by providing students with access to a healthy morning meal before school, in an environment that allows their self-esteem to grow and flourish.
As a contributing member of Breakfast Club of Canada, we are now partnered with a local Elementary school, located in Edmonton Alberta. Along with regular financial contributions to the school’s Breakfast program, our staff will be frequently visiting the amazing students. During our visits we will be assisting in a variety of activities including preparing and serving breakfasts for large groups of students and engaging in recreational activities with the classes and teachers.
Various fundraisers and additional engagement opportunities with Breakfast Club of Canada will be held throughout 2019 so stay tuned for these partnership updates via our social media pages!
