The London Police Service and the London Police Association would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of our sponsors and community partners, who once again made this one of the premier events in southwestern Ontario.

Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services

January 15, 2010

Dear Mr. Fisher:

I am writing to express my thanks to you for permitting police officers to use your business premises in role playing exercises as part of the Technical Investigator course. It was most helpful to the students to gain experience in this environment and beneficial to the development of the technical investigator.

The ministry takes great pride in the training it offers to police technical investigators, which has proven to be the best offered in North America. This training would not be possible without the support of local businesses.

Once again, thank you for your continued support of law enforcement in the community.

Yours truly,

Canadian Diabetes Association

November 13, 2009

Dear ISM Team:

On behalf of the Canadian Diabetes Association, I would like to thank you for your help in the fight against diabetes. This morning the Staff and students at Banting joined an estimated 150,000 participants in 54  countries in the World Diabetes Foundation's Global Diabetes Walk – a walk to raise the awareness of the seriousness of the global diabetes epidemic.

You and your team of top-notch security personnel helped to ensure the safety of the event and contributed to its success.

Each year, ISM is there to provide support to the Canadian Diabetes Association and Sir Frederick Banting Secondary School. The support we receive from the staff at ISM is great to see. This year, we were talking to the guards, who mentioned their direct connection to diabetes, whether it is a family member living with the disease, or one guard who grew up in Alliston (where Dr. Banting was born) and went to Banting High School there. Volunteering for the walk is a small but significant act to help those ISM staff and their family members living with diabetes.

As our population ages, a greater number of people will develop diabetes. Few other diseases touch the lives of so many Canadians. Ask a person who lives with diabetes and they will tell you that, while manageable, diabetes also has a significant, perhaps less obvious emotional impact. It is a demanding disease with many unpleasant impositions and deprivations, and no guarantees of a life free from complications. It demands attention every hour of every day. It is ongoing, never-ending and often overwhelming.

As we move forward, support from peope like you is critical. Through our combined efforts, diabetes is becoming more manageable – and possibly curable – making the lives of Canadians with diabetes and their families better.

Thank you once again for your supoort, without it our achievements would not be possible.

Yours truly,

Sue Taylor

Hospice of London

November 9, 2008

Dear Gord:

On behalf of the volunteers and staff at Hospice of London, I wish to express our sincere appreciation to you and Innovative Security Management for your most generous donation of the security officer for our Annual Hospice Half Marathon, 10K and 5K Memory Walk. Over 400 people participated and with your help this year, we were able to raise over $10,000.

As you may be aware, the programs and services at Hospice of London centre on helping people with a life threatening illness live at home as comfortably and as fully as possible. Care not only focuses on the physical needs but is also compassionate and aimed at improving quality of care.

From volunteer visits that provide support and companionship, to complimentary therapies to enhance the quality of life, all the needs of the client, family and caregiver are addressed. Our programs and services are provided in our home or in yours.

Our staff and volunteers are passionately committed to providing support services at no cost to our clients irrespective of age, gender, race, culture, religion or economic status.

We are able to provide our services due to the generosity of people like you and businesses like ISM. The monies raised from the race will be dedicated to recruiting, training and coordination volunteer visitors to meet the growing need for Hospice care in our community.

Right now 1 in 10 Canadians are caring for someone with a long-term illness and this number is on the rise. We know how hard it is to accept the imminent passing of a loved one. We are very pleased that you have decided to support us in making this very difficult passage both manageable and meaningful for so many people in our community.

We are most grateful for you support.

Canadian Red Cross

March 31, 2005

Dear Red Cross Donor:

Thank you for helping Red Cross help so many people whose lives were devastated by the South Asian tsunami. Your generosity is truly making a difference in the 12 countries where hundreds of rlief workers are hard at work.

The ravages of nature have brought great tragedy but also elicited the best in human nature as you and so many other Canadians have responded with generous gifts. In the London and Middlesex communities, the Red Cross raised over 1.6 million dollars.

Your response to this staggering disaster has helped the Red Cross in Canada and around the world mobilize aid and relief workers during the immediate relief effort and is now paving the way for long term rebuilding. Experienced aide workers are tackling the complex problem of immediate recovery from the devastation that claimed more than 280,000 lives. An international team of Red Cross people and supplies are making life tolerable and safe from disease for the survivors.

It is clear that rebuilding efforts will take many years and many different forms of assistance will be needed, ranging from construction to psychological assistance. As the media spotlight moves on to other news and issues, the tsunami survivors will benefit from the gifts of donors like you who were moved to action.

Red Cross will report  regularly on progress in the 12 affected countries with updates available on the Canadian Red Cross website at or the international Red Cross at Please visit these sites to see how your contribution is keeping a pipeline of assistance open for millions of people whose future is being shaped by donors. Hope is on the way thanks to you and others who cared. You are helping us make a difference for those most in need.

Sincerely yours,

Century 21 First Canadian Corp.

June 24, 2005

Dear Gord:

On behalf of Century 21 First Canadian Corp. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of our Easter Seals Pig Roast and Dance. Approximately 270 tickets were sold and a great time was enjoyed by all.

Thanks to generous sponsors and suppliers we were able to raise $10,00 for children, youth and young adults with physical disabilities. This money will cover the cost of sending five children to camp for ten days. All youth, whether physically disabled or not, benefit from camping or recreational experiences. A recreational environment builds social skills, independence, and self-esteem. However, for a child with a physical disability, this experience is so much more. Participating in recreational activities opens their mind to the possibilities of what they can accomplish, rather than allowing them to focus on what they are unable to do. Camp offers an opportunity to expand personal boundaries and explore abilities, dreams and goals.

Century 21 First Canadian Corp. remains committed to helping children with physical disabilities meet and exceed their dreams. Planning for the 2006 Pig Roast is already underway and we look forward to hosting even larger numbers for the event next year.

Again thank you for your support.
