Royal Le Page Shelter Foundation
Atlas and our moving agents are proud to partner with the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
The National Garage Sale for Shelter Day is the Shelter Foundation's biggest national fundraising event.
Many of our Atlas mover agents provide storage, transportation and assistance to help the Royal Le Page Real Estate offices across Canada with their Garage Sale for Shelter Day.
The 2017 National Garage Sale Day is on Saturday, May 13th. In the past 8 years, this event has raised over $2.5 million for women's shelters.
The Shelter Foundation supports 200 shelters and helps over 30,000 women & children each year. They are also committed to making a difference in violence prevention through funding of grassroots violence prevention programs in schools.
100% of every dollar raised or donated goes directly to the woman's shelters and education programs; Royal Le Page Real Estate covers all of the administration costs.

Move For Hunger
Atlas Van Lines Canada is proud to partner with Move For Hunger.
Moving is a great time to donate unopened, non-perishable food items. Atlas agents across Canada are helping their customers by delivering donated food to the local food bank. According to Move For Hunger, over 850,000 people access food banks in Canada, of which 36% are children.
Hunger is not a problem only affecting the homeless or the poorest of the poor. Hunger is everywhere, and the numbers are staggering. What does hunger look like, you might ask?
- It is your elderly neighbor who must choose between buying groceries and heating her home
- It is your child’s classmate who goes to school each day without lunch and is too embarrassed to ask for help
Move For Hunger is a non- profit organization who partners with a number of companies in North America. With the help of their partners, more than 7.6 million pounds of food has been collected to date for people in need. For more information, please visit www.MoveForHunger.org
MS Society of Canada
22 years ago, Atlas Van Lines Canada and our agent moving companies across Canada became a national sponsor for the MS Society of Canada's annual RONA MS Bike Tours.
Atlas moving companies donate services in kind; drivers and transportation service to move supplies to check points and volunteers to help at check points during the 23 annual Bike Tours that run from June to Sept. in centres across Canada.
In addition, many of our Atlas moving companies across Canada have established strong ties with their local MS Society Chapters and often participate in many of the Society's fundraising events.
The MS Society supports research into the cause, treatment and cure of the disease. Unlike many other charities, they do not use commission based fundraising techniques. The MS Society relies on grass root events such as the MS Super Cities Walk, RONA MS Bike Tours, MS Carnation Campaign, and Read-a-thons along with personal and corporate gifts to help them raise funds for the cause.
Atlas Van Lines Canada is proud to sponsor the MS Society in their goal to find a cure. For more information, to make a donation or to see the 2016 RONA MS Bike Tour schedule go to www.mssociety.ca
