Fundraising at the STM
Montreal, February 13, 2008 - For a twelfth consecutive year, current and retired employees of the Société de transport de Montréal demonstrated their great generosity during the company’s annual fundraising campaign held from November 1 to 30, 2007.
In fact, while the
objective had been set at $630 000, in the end a sum of
Symbolic cheques were presented on January 25 with several volunteers from the company and representatives from each organization in attendance.
Transit users also do their share
Clients also showed their generosity during the tenth edition of the Bonnes œuvres des employ�s, which took place this past November 22, 23 and 24. On this occasion, volunteers from the company collected donations in certain métro stations to help out families in need.
This fundraising drive raised $66 620.17 from transit users, to which was added another $17 217.20 collected from employees.
Thus, a total of $83 837.37 was used to buy food to prepare Christmas baskets for some 710 underprivileged families in various sectors of Montréal.
A huge thank you to our current and retired employees and to our clients for raising a total of $760 110.94 to help the most disadvantaged.
