Mr. John Zangari, Board Member, was pleased to present the 2015 Friend of the Centre Award to Harvey and Elaine Snaden, owners of H & E Comfort Controls, who are wonderful supporters of the John McGivney Children’s Centre. Their support of the Centre began in 2008 through the renovation and addition of our current building.  Shortly after the construction project was completed, one of their employee’s children would begin to receive services at the Centre.  By allowing this employee flexible hours to attend the Centre with their child as necessary, time to support the Centre with his expertise regarding our building, and time to support Centre programs in a variety of ways; Harvey and Elaine have continued to mentor the giving attitude and leadership that our community continues to enjoy. Harvey and Elaine, who through their company, H & E Comfort Controls, continue to support the Centre through advice on the building and its operation, and are a consistent  supporter of community organizations such as The Hospice of Windsor & Essex County, Autism Ontario, Maryvale, Windsor Regional Hospital, Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, Rotary Club of Windsor Roseland and the University of Windsor, among many others.  Harvey and Elaine exemplify the true meaning of the Friend of the Centre award.
