Ladies of the CSSA Display Their Ponytail Power

Every woman has a super-power – the power to change lives for the better. The ladies of the Canadian Sanitation Supply Association (CSSA) displayed this super-power by participating in the recently held Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build event. The Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build event is part of a global campaign that brings women together in a shared mission to help families in need. Truly a community effort, Women Build harnesses the power of women from all walks of life, including the ladies of CSSA with its “Team Ponytail Power.”

The 2014 Team Ponytail Power included the following members:

  • Organizers – Keelan Robinson and Fanika Perika, Cross Country Installation & Service.

  • Platinum Sponsors – Anna Gaynor, Marney Thompson and Karen Kennedy, Kruger Products L.P.

  • Participants – Kim Proctor, Amy Jacobs and Julie Thompson (Unisource – a Division of Veritiv); Anne Lebarr (Procter & Gamble); Louise Taillon (Wood Wyant); Chris Bradley (KB Medland); Filomena Goncalves and Lindsey Lima (Bunzl and R3Redistribution); Liz Deacon and Julie Vincent (Kimberly Clark); Coleen Bannan (Cascades); Tracey Caville (Swish Maintenance); and Marisa Fernand (Gojo).

The ladies of CSSA have built a strong and passionate ‘Ponytail Power’ team which doubled in size for the 2014 event. In 2015, the team plans to raise $1 million in funding, and help build 33 simple and affordable homes – in an effort to help break the cycle of poverty for families in need. Each participant is tasked with building for one day and raising a minimum of $500.
