Every year, our employees participate in MCT Day, a major fundraising initiative that sees the combined efforts of all MCT offices coming together to support a united cause. This year, our offices raised $28,393.78 toward KidSport Canada, a national not-for-profit organization that financially assists children with registration fees and equipment in order to participate in sports. Our fundraising total includes a $13,500 contribution from Economical Insurance.
As in previous years, our employees raised funds by organizing family-friendly events at each of their branches. This year, these events included barbeques, bake sales, bottle drives and car washes.
As always, our branches came up with some creative ideas on how to further their fundraising efforts. One of our branches held a raffle for a ‘lottery shirt’, which was a golf shirt covered with $100 worth of lottery scratch tickets. Another branch also hosted their annual ‘jail and bail’ event, where employees nominate their colleagues to be put in their ‘jail’ and others must donate money to ‘bail’ them out.
Because of the dedication of our employees, we surpassed our total of $28,029 from 2014. The money raised will benefit children across Canada through KidSport Canada and helps us live up to our motto of ‘Taking Care of People’.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our fundraising events on MCT Day.
