National Bank Volunteer Program: 100,000 hours of volunteer work for the benefit of the community

National Bank is proud to announce, as it marks National Volunteer Week, that its employees and retired employees devoted 100,000 hours of their time to volunteer activities over the past year. To highlight reaching this objective, a donation of $100,000, which is equal to the number of volunteer hours logged, will be given to an organization dedicated to children’s well-being, selected by employees. This amount brings the Bank’s total contributions to more than $12 million over the past five years to promote education, healthcare and other initiatives for young people.

 

$100,000 donated to the Children’s Wish Foundation
At the ceremony to present the cheque to the Children’s Wish Foundation, Lise-Anne Amyot, Vice-President – Brand and Client Experience, reiterated the importance of community engagement at National Bank: “Year after year, thousands of employees and retired employees tirelessly devote their time to make a difference in the community.” To recognize this engagement and multiply its impact, the Bank updated its volunteer program in 2014. One of the new initiatives includes donating $1 for each hour volunteered in the community by employees and retired employees, individually or in teams.”

Thanks to the National Bank Volunteer Program, the Children’s Wish Foundation will be able to devote even more energy and resources to bringing joy to children living with a life-threatening illness.
