Mississauga, ONTARIO, April 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mississauga based companies, Save Max Real Estate Inc. and Canadian tech start-up Workeefy Inc. are hosting an online fundraiser event today at 2:00 p.m. EST in support of Peel Region frontline responders who are supporting their communities during COVID-19. The public and media are invited to connect and engage with Canadian dignitaries who will be addressing participants online and creating awareness of the fundraiser. Attendees include:

  • Bonnie Crombie - Mayor of Mississauga
  • Patrick Brown - Mayor of Brampton
  • Steven Del Duca - Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party
  • Maninder Sidhu - Member of Parliament for Brampton East
  • Prabhmeet Sarkaria - Associate Minister of Small Business
  • Rameshwar Sangha - Member of Parliament for Brampton Centre
  • Deepak Anand - Member, Standing Committee on Public Accounts
  • Ron Chatha - Chair, Regional Municipality of Peel Police Service Board
  • Gurratan Singh - Member, Standing Committee on Justice Policy
  • Sara Singh - Member, Standing Committee on the Legislative Assembly
  • Gurpreet Dhillon - Regional Councillor
  • Ritesh Malik -  Co-Founder and President, Workeefy Inc.
  • Raman Dua - CEO, Save Max Real Estate Inc. 

Hundreds of participants are expected to attend the online community event. Organizers have already raised over $50,000 of their $100,000 goal to assist essential workers who are putting their lives at risk every day to keep Canadians safe and healthy. A major portion of the money raised will be contributed towards William Osler Healthcare Foundation and Trillium Health Partners to procure Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for frontline healthcare responders.

“This fundraiser was an idea initiated by Shreya Dua, daughter of Raman Dua, CEO of Save Max Real Estate Inc. In celebration of her birthday, she asked for a way to support frontline responders in these difficult times rather than having a traditional teenage birthday,” says Ritesh Malik, Co-Founder and President of Workeefy Inc, a Mississauga based start-up for online home services.

Together, Workeefy Inc. and the Save Max Real Estate Inc. team are leading the charge to create this community fundraiser. Workeefy Inc. created a platform, sent a note to their 5,000+ customers while Save Max Real Estate Inc. reached out to their 15,000+ base of loyal customers. In just a few days this week, the organizers surpassed the initial $50,000 goal, and now have raised the bar to collect $100,000. 

During these difficult times, Workeefy Inc. also initiated an effort of We Learn - a teacher-guided learning experience for students, offered Store-to-Door Delivery for small businesses including local Brampton and Burlington Pet Valu stores, coordinated with IDA pharmacies (Nathan Pharmacy) to provide free prescription delivery across the GTA. In addition, Workeefy Inc. is supporting Peel Region food banks by providing deliveries through Workeefy Inc. service providers as needed.
