Montréal, Toronto, Canada – 11 July 2018 – On June 2 and 3, the 34th annual IWK Telethon for children – the IWK Foundation’s largest fundraising event – was broadcasted on CTV Atlantic. The foundation has raised, with the aid of its donors, a total of $6,580,266.71 to support the care of children and families at the IWK.
Vertafore and its Canadian division, Keal, hold a strong belief in community involvement and it is with great honor that our Grand Falls N.B. employees have taken part in the support of the health of Maritime families by presenting a cheque of $10,235 to the IWK Foundation. On July 1st the Keal’s office in Grand Falls, NB also held a “Keal Cares Breakfast” in an effort to continue to raise money for the foundation. This evidently attests to Keal’s notion of giving back and ongoing engagement in the community. With this year’s donation of $10,235 it is now over $35,000 that Keal and its employees have raised in the last four (4) years.
While the government funds the IWK Health Centre’s customary operations, the generosity of the donors is what allows the IWK to go the extra mile in providing the most urgent care priorities such as equipment, research, programs and new facilities. Each supporter of the IWK is involved in making a difference in the lives and well-being of thousands of women and children and any donation has tremendous impact and is significant to the world-class care the centre provides. Additional donations can be made online at www.iwkfoundation.org/donate or by phone at 1-800-595-2266.
Vertafore and its Keal employees are also engaged in various other activities in its multiple office locations. The employees at the Concord office volunteer at the Vaughan Food Bank and assist in the process of distributing necessary food items and clothing to those in need. The Montréal office had the opportunity to donate time to the Mission Bon Accueil, a large food bank that serves men, women and children in need by supporting numerous shelters and social organizations in the city.
Vertafore is committed to support the wonderful and life-changing mission of multiple organizations such as the IWK foundation and encourages its employees to donate time, including work time, to help better the lives of others.
