Express London Community Involvement

  • Giving Back in Our Local Community

    Whether we are helping people build their careers or their businesses , Express London believes that hope is the foundation for a successful life. We give hope by providing opportunities for people to find gainful employment and have a better quality of life and for businesses to thrive in the community. We support our community by donating funds and time to a few local charitable organizations and partnering with groups whose missions align with our goal of helping improve the quality of life in our community.

    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:

  • 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
    • Pads
    • Cups
    • Discs
    • Toiletries
    • Pregnancy tests
    • Monetary donations


    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.

  • LSTAR Charity Golf Event

    On Sept.15, 2022, we showed our support for local charities, by sponsoring and working the registration desk for the LSTAR Charity Golf Tournament. In addition to collecting money for draw prize tickets, we greeted each participant with the signature Express welcome - a friendly smile and a free giveaway! We are grateful for the opportunity to help others, by helping raise funds for YOU (Youth Opportunities Unlimited), My Sister's Place and The Grace Cafe.


  • Heatwave vs Sick Kids Challenge

    We recognize there are many worthy causes in our community and extended network and do our best to support those we can. This year, we're supported our colleagues in the Toronto area, as they took on the Heatwave for Sick Kids Challenge!

    On August 13, Express Employment professionals from across Southwestern Ontario went head to head with other fierce contenders in a volleyball tournament to raise funds for the Toronto Sick Kids Hospital. They beat the heat to help hundreds of children fighting cancer.

    It was a tough fight, but the Express team held their own. They raised over $7,000, surpassing the fundraising efforts for all the other teams!
