Tervita has a 30-year workplace giving partnership with the United Way of Calgary. The company matches all of employees’ United Way donations, and together, we have invested more than $1 million towards building a better and stronger community.
Our employees organize and run the United Way campaign every year, working side-by-side to plan fundraising activities and volunteer in their community. The company encourages these efforts, knowing that they build personal connections within the company and inspire all of us to help further.
In 2017, the campaign raised more than $20,000, and with the Tervita match, more than $40,000 was donated directly to the United Way, making a difference to the lives of those in need in our communities.
