United Way of Canada
Every year, Desjardins Insurance gives back by teaming up with charitable organizations such as United Way Toronto and York Region to help better our communities.
United Way partners with companies to engage the workforce in fundraising and creating awareness for the needs of the community in order to:
- Support those facing mental health challenges
- Provide services for newcomers and immigrants
- Prevent domestic violence and abuse
- Address issues of affordable housing and homelessness
- Promote literacy
How we support United Way
Day of caring participation
Our employees provide services such as cooking, painting and cleaning to charities in need.
A large variety of internal events take place to promote awareness and raise funds for United Way. Our employees regularly participate and give from their hearts.
Annual dragon boat race
Every year, United Way Toronto and York Region holds an annual race in King City to raise money and Desjardins Insurance employees and their family members are proud to take part.
