Thanks a million to the personnel at James Richardson & Sons Limited and Affiliated Companies, whose generosity and community spirit continued to shine in 2011. Together, they raised more than $1 million through their United Way workplace campaigns in locations across Canada.
Locally, generous contributions from Winnipeg-based employees, both active and retired, have made James Richardson & Sons Limited and Affiliated Companies the number one employee workplace campaign in Winnipeg last year.
Employee donations are matched by a corporate gift provided through the Richardson Foundation. “We introduced a matching gift program into our workplace campaigns in 2002 in an effort to engage more donors,” said Kelly Harris, Employee Campaign Chair. “What resulted was far beyond our expectations; year over year we have increased the level of participation of personnel who support United Way, as well as the number of individuals who increase their gift.”
The firm’s philosophy of investing in the communities where its employees live, work and play is proudly demonstrated through the unwavering commitment of its personnel to United Way.
