Supporting our communities through United Way
Oct 27, 2014 1 minute read
We know teamwork leads to the best work possible and we’re applying the same perspective to support United Way in building stronger and healthier communities.
Our 2014 United Way campaign begins Monday, October 27 and runs until Friday, November 7. Each of our branch offices will participate in various fundraising events for local agencies that rely on donations from United Way. These fundraising events will include bake sales, raffles, food bank challenges, and even bingo.
We’re also giving back to our communities by participating in “A Day of Caring”, where BrokerLink staff volunteer at local agencies supported by United Way. In previous years, staff have found this experience rewarding as they have been able to help with much needed projects by contributing their time and effort. Plus, they’ve been able to see firsthand how these agencies help people within their own communities.
BrokerLink has supported the United Way campaign since 2010, raising more than $350,000 from employee support and matching contributions from the Intact Financial Corporation (IFC) Foundation. We are proud to support United Way as the contributions stay local since they work with many agencies to target the root causes of social problems affecting towns and cities across Canada.
Stay tuned for updates on how we show our spirit and support for United Way as part of our 2014 campaign.
