Porter Novelli giftTrevor Campbell, president of Porter Novelli Canada presents a matching cheque to FYFB board member and PN staffer, Jennifer Wasley. "As an organization we value community involvement and I'm so proud of the team spirit my staff showed during the TTC Blitz that it was impossible not to make a matching donation."
