INSPIRATIONAL EXAMPLES OF CORPORATE VOLUNTEERING AT LITTLE BROTHERS
A group of 21 employees from the Air Transat head office helped get a delicious meal and special surprises ready for 160 shut-ins in Montreal who belong to the Little Brothers community.
“The group of volunteers came together very quickly. The entire team worked enthusiastically to bring a spark of joy into Elder Friends’ lives,”
– said Christophe Hennebelle, Vice-President, Human Resources and Talent Management, Air Transat.
On May 23, Marsh Canada sent a team of hard-working, community-minded employees to help spring-clean Little Brothers headquarters in Montreal, inside and out. They rolled up their sleeves and got right down to business, scrubbing the kitchen until it sparkled and leaving the flowerbeds and alley neat and tidy.
A group of employees from Intact Assurance spent the better part of a day sorting clothes at La Boutique, Little Brothers’ thrift shop located at 1380 Gilford Street in Montreal. La Boutique helps give a variety of items donated by the public a second life.
In addition to generating a tremendous amount of synergy within the team, these efforts were a much-appreciated helping hand for La Boutique, whose proceeds go toward funding Little Brothers’ operations. Elder Friends are entitled to shop at La Boutique for free, which can be very useful for the large proportion of them who live under the poverty line.
CLINIQUE DENTAIRE PIERRE MAYRAND
For the fifth year in a row, the staff at Clinique dentaire Pierre Mayrand invaded the kitchen and dining room at our centre on Garnier Street to prepare and serve a delicious lunch to share the holiday spirit with our Elder Friends.
The volunteers pulled out all the stops to pamper our Elder Friends, and they were visibly moved by all the attention and kindness. When came time for dessert, singer Shirley Théroux treated everyone to her beautiful renditions of some of the season’s most popular melodies.
Dr. Mayrand and his team also came bearing presents, which they purchased with funds they had raised for the cause.
