在澳门凯旋门开户网站, we work to build a sense of 社区 and teamwork to raise money for local organizations.
Our long-standing pledge to be a company that “gives where it lives” assumed new purpose and relevance, against the backdrop of the extraordinary challenges associated with 新型冠状病毒肺炎.
During the early days of the 新型冠状病毒肺炎 pandemic, when local healthcare workers were struggling to secure adequate supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE), 渥太华水电也捐赠了12个,000 masks to The Ottawa Hospital.
These are just a few of the giving 运动s we're supporting to help improve the quality of life in our 社区.
2021年1月，为了纪念 钟让我们谈谈 运动, 澳门凯旋门开户网站 presented CHEO with a $30,000 donation in support of its child and youth mental health programs. CHEO is one of the largest providers of mental health services in Ontario for youth and their families.
作为一个社区公司, 澳门凯旋门开户网站 is passionate about giving back to the 社区 and investing in local institutions that support children and youth. 自2015年以来, 澳门凯旋门开户网站 and the CHEO Foundation have partnered on the ‘Go Paperless’ annual 运动s. 通过这个活动, 澳门凯旋门开户网站 donated $5 to the CHEO Foundation for every customer that registered for our online billing service and/or one of our automated payment plans. To date, 澳门凯旋门开户网站 now has 56% of customers that receive e-billing and use online services.
Since the program launched, 澳门凯旋门开户网站 has raised more than $500,000. These funds have been used to address some of CHEO’s most urgent needs, and to purchase life-saving medical equipment throughout the hospital such as:
- 2015 - Max Keeping Fund for Kids
- 2016- new (and paperless) patient monitors
- 2017 - echocardiography machine to help tiny preterm babies admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit
- 2018 - CHEO support services aimed at helping children play and socialize during appointments and longer stays in the hospital
- 2019 - replace aging ambulatory blood pressure monitors for its Dialysis Unit and the purchase of BiliBlankets for newborn babies
- 2020 – support for youth mental health programs
This 运动 is an example of how we contribute to our 社区 in which we live and work – which has always been part of our mission.
自2012年以来, 澳门凯旋门开户网站 has been supporting the 统一的方式 to fulfill their mission of breaking down barriers, improving lives and creating opportunities for the people who need them most.
通过员工捐款, 企业匹配, 烤销售, 烧烤,, 高尔夫比赛和更多, the organization has raised more than $1.3 million in support of the following 社区 programs:
- youth homelessness and after school programs
- frontline agencies that serve the homeless or those at risk of being homeless
Staying mentally healthy is important, now more than ever as we see the impact 新型冠状病毒肺炎 has had on the mental health of people everywhere. 渥太华水电支持皇家, one of Canada’s foremost mental health care, teaching and research hospitals whose goal is to help more people living with mental illness and addiction into recovery faster.
Our support of 英国皇家 includes sponsorship of their Inspiration Awards which recognizes the passion of people committed to making the world better, the determination to triumph through hardships, 敢于直言的勇气, and the resolve to help break down the stigma often associated with mental illness. As a company that gives where it lives, we also support the Leaders for Mental Health Breakfast which unites local 社区 business leaders to raise awareness and funds for mental health care and research.
Cancer affects 1 in 2 Canadians, and in 2016 澳门凯旋门开户网站 saw this type of impact first hand with several employees. This resulted in 澳门凯旋门开户网站 and their employees pledging $1million over a five-year period to fully equip an entire mammography room at the Rose Ages Breast Health Centre at The Ottawa Hospital. 该中心, 它于2018年开业, offers expertise in breast imaging, 诊断, 风险评估, surgical planning and psychosocial support. Money is raised through the annual 澳门凯旋门开户网站 Charity Golf Tournament and is made possible thanks to the enthusiastic participation of employees, supporters and industry partners. Fundraising was paused in 2020 due to the pandemic and we hope to resume with our event this year to complete our goal.
