Eagle Donates $50,000 for the Children

Technology Staffing Company Continues Annual Giving Campaign to the Children's Aid Foundation

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 3, 2006) - Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle) presented their annual donation of $50,000 to Sheilagh Johnson, Executive Director of the Children's Aid Foundation (CAF) this past month. With this latest donation, Eagle has given more than $300,000 to the CAF over the last six years. The funds are distributed to local children's aid organizations across the country within the communities which Eagle has a local presence including: Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Halifax.

As Eagle's major charity of choice, The Children's Aid Foundation provides the opportunity for Eagle to be involved in selecting programs to which these funds will be distributed. Eagle has elected to support programs that help disadvantaged children prepare to enter school, and succeed when they get there.

Some of the programs supported throughout Canada include: preschool programs that teach language and social skills to high-risk children between the ages of newborn to five years old, parenting education, tutoring and training for youth, special interventions for children with mental health disorders, one-on-one mentoring to enhance school performance, breakfast club discussion groups and homework clubs.

"Eagle has provided tremendous leadership in establishing "head start" programs that prepare high-risk children to enter the school system. Their commitment has had a significant impact on the lives of thousands of Canadian children," said Sheilagh Johnson, Executive Director of the Children's Aid Foundation. "We are grateful not only for their continued support but for the example they set as a caring corporate citizen determined to make Canada a place where all children have an equal chance to succeed."

"The Children's Aid Foundation provides a vital service to our communities through its programs, giving abused and neglected children self-confidence and a new start on life," said Kevin Dee, Eagle's CEO. "Eagle is proud to continue to support these essential programs that afford these children an opportunity to access these supportive environments."
