FALCON RETAIL – COVID-19 Policy: Making Sure We Are All Safe

 

Monday, March 16th, 2020 @ 4:45 pm

 

On behalf of everyone at FALCON RETAIL, our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19—this includes not only those diagnosed with the virus, but also their friends and family, those whose lives have been impacted economically, emotionally and socially.  Our focus is, as always, on the health, safety and well-being of our customers, employees, vendors, visitors and their respective families and communities. And as the concerns around COVID-19 are changing rapidly, we want to update you on our commitment to stay healthy.

 

We are committed to completing your projects in our scheduled timelines and providing a comfortable safe environment for everyone at our office as well as all our partners.  If this situation evolves and lockdowns become mandatory in Ontario, we have a plan to make it possible for our team to work from home so there are as little disruptions as possible.

 

We are encouraging our clients/partners to move meetings online.  In our building, we are introducing enhanced cleaning protocols, increasing communications and reminding our clients, visitors and employees on important health and safety measures.

 

  1. We have added additional cleaning and sanitizing procedures.  Every day we are going through the offices and cleaning hi-touch surfaces like handles, faucets and light switches with disinfectant.

 

  1. We have asked everyone in the building to wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds upon their arrival and departure from the building as well as before/after breaks. Hand washing has proven to be the best defense in the spread of the virus.

 

  1. We have instructed our staff that if they have any symptoms or feel unwell to stay home.

 

  1. To protect yourself and others, we ask that anyone who is feeling unwell refrain from visiting us so that together we can ensure everyone’s safety.

 

We Are Following The Guidance Of Government And Health Authorities

 

Falcon’s team is closely monitoring this evolving situation and are keeping up to date with the information from leading health agencies for information and guidance and this policy can update as required.

Falcon Retail Spreading Cheer At First Transition Place During The Season of Giving

 

Building healthier communities - one relationship at a time

 

 

Bolton, ON, December 10, 2018 – Falcon Retail is proud to announce that this holiday season it will be giving the gift of giving.  Falcon Retail has made a generous donation of food and products to First Transition Place to spread cheer to those facing and/or recovering from adversity.

 

Family Transition Place (FTP) is a registered not for profit agency mandated by the government of Ontario to provide emergency shelter and counselling for abused women and their children.  They have been serving the Caledon areafor over 25 years.  According to statistics published by the government of Ontario, it is estimated that one in three Canadian women will experience sexual assault in her adult life.  What is more discerning is that fewer than 10 per cent of sexual assaults are reported to police.

 

“It is really sad to hear the shocking statistics, and more so to know that often times there are children involved,” says Barry MacDonald, President of Falcon Retail.  “Therefore, in appreciation of a successful year and in gratitude to those who have help us get there, we thought what better way to say thank you and pay it forward than by making a donation on behalf of our clients, partners and vendors to FTP.”

 

Since 1984, FTP has been providing critical services to women and their children who have experienced abuse and unhealthy relationships. Inside FTP’s doors, women find a warm and welcoming place where their safety and well-being is the most important thing in the world.  Whether they need a safe place to live, or the services of a professional, skilled counsellor to assist them on their journey, FTP is there to help.  Over the years, FTP has become known, not only for these core critical services, but for also being a leader in the field of healthy relationship education.  The Transitions Training division of FTP offers corporate training for organizations on domestic violence and its impact on the workplace, and the extremely popular Youth Education programs in the schools are helping to build healthy communities, one classroom at a time.

 

“They say that 67% of Canadians know a woman that has experienced physical or sexual abuse.  I can honestly say that I as well as others on the Falcon team can concede to this in some form.  That’s what encouraged us to choose FTP as the organization for giving this holiday season,” said Barry.  “The holidays should be about ordinary people being extraordinary by giving their time or help to those in need.  These acts of kindness and generosity go a long way and make us all feel warm and fuzzy inside.  In this instance, it shows the women and children that use FTP that they are not alone.”

 

Everyone has the right to feel safe and be safe in their community, their workplace, and their home.
