One of our longest standing partnerships is with United Way. In 2020, we raised $278,000 for United Way and Centraide organizations across the country. Dedicated teams of employees volunteered their time to plan events, and inspire coworkers and retirees to make a difference. We happily matched their donations up to $125,000.
University Hospitals Kingston Foundation
Our 10-year pledge to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation Campaign helped support the construction of the new Providence Care Hospital which opened its doors in 2017. Tremendous care and thought has gone into creating an environment that inspires and instills hope, and enhances treatment, rehabilitation and recovery for patients of the new facility. With 270 private rooms, plenty of natural light, outdoor courtyards and rooftop terraces, the hospital is a warm and comfortable patient-centred approach to health and mental wellness.
The gift of sharing
The pandemic has been hard on many of us, but especially hard on vulnerable members of our communities, those who have lost their jobs and who are finding it more difficult than ever to make ends meet. Recognizing this, our sales teams redirected monies they would normally spend on holiday events and activities for distribution partners to our annual holiday donations program. As a result, we were able to provide much-needed donations to 15 food banks and community support programs across the country. We truly appreciate the work they all do to support our friends and neighbours.
Pathways and GEM
Empire Life has supported Pathways to Education Canada since 2010 and Girls eMentorship (GEM) since 2016. Both organizations are focused on changing the lives of young Canadians, helping them to overcome socioeconomic and educational barriers and reach their full potential. We are extraordinarily proud of the achievements and enthusiasm of the participants and of the small part we play in helping them to build bright futures for themselves.
“Thank you for being a part of Community Rocks and for celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities with us. Know that your support goes far beyond the value of the sponsorship.
