Mississauga, ON. January 10, 2012. Continuing its commitment to support local communities and a wide range of charitable organizations, Maxxam and its employees raised over $90,000 for groups across the country and contributed over 2500 hours to community service in 2012.
Now in its 11th year, Maxxam’s annual Food Drive was the biggest contributor. Employees across the country rallied to raise over $30,000 for local Food Banks, which was matched by the company for a total of over $65,000.
In addition, Maxxam employees and managers from coast-to-coast took advantage of the company’s Day of Caring, a paid day per year that employees are encouraged to use to volunteer at a charitable organization of their choice. In 2012, employees organized Day of Caring teams to build homes for Habitat for Humanity, to participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up, to adopt and clean-up a stretch of highway or to restore a local community playground.
“It’s when we pull together that we’re at our best”, says Jon Hantho, Maxxam’s President & CEO. “That is true when our laboratory and customer service staff collaborates on a project to contribute to our customers’ success, and it is just as true when we connect with one another and our communities to give back or show our respect for the environment.”
Maxxam wrapped up 2012 by once again sending a virtual Holiday card to customers, which included a donation component that allowed recipients to pick one of three charities to which Maxxam will donate $1 per click.
