WATERLOO, ON, December 17, 2015 – Employees at Economical Insurance offices across the country dug deep again this year and generously donated to United Way, the company’s signature charity. Every dollar an employee pledged up to $2,500 was matched dollar-for-dollar by the company. At the end of the national campaign held from November 16 to 20, a grand total of $447,097 was raised.
“Through their pledges during the campaign, our employees demonstrate that we truly are stronger together,” said Karen Gavan, president and chief executive officer. “Their wonderful generosity is going to make a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of Canadians in need.”
Providing a better life for everyone was the focus of Economical’s 2015 campaign which framed how supporting United Way extends much-needed support to people in need communities across Canada.
