Our community involvement in June

Because at Laurentide, people matter, we are proud to report that our employees participated in 2 charity events this past month.

On Thursday, June 13, Héma-Québec’s mobile unit was at our Kirkland head office for our twice-yearly blood drive, with 28 donors participating. Since every blood donation is divided in 4 components,

” Having it set up here, at the office, made it incredibly easy for me to give blood for the first time. In fact, I was inspired by a colleague and just had to follow suit. In the end, it is such a small gesture that can have a major impact on a person’s life: I’m glad I did it and look forward to the next Laurentide blood drive this fall.” – Isabelle, Marketing and Communications Specialist

The next day, on June 14, Prostate Cancer Canada held its annual Plaid for Dad event across the country. Employees were encouraged to participate by wearing plaid in exchange for money donations. Thanks to our team’s enthusiastic participation as well as Laurentide matching the donated amounts, we were able to raise a total of 2,400$ to help men who are facing a prostate cancer diagnosis.
