For Jeff and Julie Strong, giving back to the community they work and live in has always been extremely important. Longtime residents of Port Credit and owners of commercial cleaning company, ServiceMaster Contract Services Mississauga, the pair are intimately familiar with Peel Region and proud to call it their home for life and business. In fact, they’ve been committed to philanthropy for over 40 years. Years ago, when the couple and business owners first decided to find a charitable partner for their company to support, the choice was glaringly obvious.
“Trillium Health Partners holds a very special place in our hearts because it’s where both our sons and two of our grandchildren were born,” says Julie of the decision to support patient care at Trillium Health Partners (THP), one they haven’t looked back on in over four decades.
“We also have a dear friend, Gail Scott, who has dedicated her life’s work to Trillium as a nurse. Seeing her hard work and dedication to her patients over the years just reaffirmed our decision that health care deserves all the support it can get,” adds Jeff.
In August 2020, Gail retired from her role as Nurse Manager in the Surgery Program after a 47-year career at THP. In honour of her years of dedication and commitment, ServiceMaster committed to a generous gift to the Surgery Program.
Reflecting on this decision Jeff and Julie had this to say, “Health care is what keeps our community, our business, our loved ones and us – thriving. We are proud to live and work here and to support the selfless, exceptional work of our health care heroes. We would have nothing without them.”
