In lieu of sending clients celebratory anniversary gifts, and Seasonal gifts, The Dunvegan Group decided to dedicate $500 each to 25 local projects.
The Dunvegan Group’s employees are located across Canada and into the US; this decision provided an opportunity to put back in to the communities where their employees reside.
The generosity of The Dunvegan Group has allowed selected beneficiaries funds which were not focused specifically around the Christmas Season, but funds which will serve them throughout the year, and in many cases, years to come.
“As a community minded organization, it was important to us to show our support of local community projects and not-for-profit organizations. We presented our employees with an opportunity to participate in selecting which local projects or organizations in their own community should receive the gifts. Our employees presented a wide range of proposals; the list was then pared down by a small committee. For each employee suggestion that was accepted, the nominating employee made the presentation to the organization on behalf of The Dunvegan Group,” explained Miner.
The gifts will support people of all ages, in all walks of life.
There were five scholarships awarded; funds were extended for renovations to a church kitchen, senior citizens resource centres, food banks, youth employment, education for new mothers, as well as Community programs such as Operation Sharing, Ingamo Homes, Coats for Kids, and the elementary school Breakfast Club. A new organization to the Woodstock area, The Power of Hope, which provides new pajamas and a stuffed animal for children of needy families, also received funding.
