Helping Hands in Action (HHIA)

Employees & Retirees in the Community

 

Did You Know?

  • 2018 Projects: 317 completed.
  • Projects include: Construction of playground areas, gazebos, camp shelters and walking trails.
  • Who: Our employees and retirees.
 

Our employees and retirees are committed to working to enrich the quality of life in their communities and one way they do this is through the company’s Helping Hands in Action (HHIA) program.

Through the HHIA program our employees, retirees and their families and friends contribute their "sweat equity" to projects that improve, renovate or add tangible value to non-profit and charitable organizations in their communities. In addition, the company supports these employee-led projects with community improvement grants of up to $1,000 each to purchase supplies and materials for the completion of the projects.

In 2018 alone, 317 HHIA projects across Ontario were completed. In fact our employees and retirees volunteered more than 7,140 hours to the communities where they live and work. Employees and retirees demonstrated their giving spirit and commitment by donning gardening gloves and safety gear and getting out their hammers, paint brushes and cooking utensils.
