Empire Life United Way campaign raises $242,000par The IJ Staff | November 24 2017 09:45AM
Empire Life raised over $242,000 in donations from employees, retirees and event fundraising for United Ways across Canada as part of its United Way campaign. The company matched all employee and retiree pledges.
“We chose the theme ‘Team Up for United Way’ because we know it takes a team of caring individuals to help change lives locally in our community,” says Brianna Drew, co-chair of the campaign. “We were successful in surpassing both our goal of $240,000 and the total amount we raised last year, ensuring much-needed programs can continue to help individuals in our community live with hope, dignity and a sense of belonging.”
In addition to the head office located in Kingston, offices in Toronto, Burlington and Montreal also led campaigns for United Way.
“We want to thank all our employees, retirees and the main local businesses that support our campaign with prize donations and silent auction contributions. Coupled with the company match, it was a true team effort and we couldn’t have achieved this incredible result without their support,” said Drew.
