Cascades and its employees give record half-million-plus donation to Centraide Centre-du-Québec!



This year, Cascades’ Kingsey Falls, Victoriaville and Drummondville units held an outstanding fundraising campaign to support Centraide Centre‑du‑Québec. Cascades and its employees managed to raise $525,000 for the organization, a whopping $165,000 more than last year!

Each unit chose ambassadors to raise awareness of the cause. We owe this feat to their dedication and involvement, and also to the company’s decision to increase its contribution this year by generously matching the sum raised by the region’s employees.

Management’s leadership on this has also been remarkable, getting behind the cause year after year. The company’s leaders have been incredibly supportive and generous in encouraging employees to collect money from their co‑workers.

The bold and proactive initiatives taken by the units’ ambassadors are praiseworthy. They organized unique activities and put together testimonials to increase awareness of the cause. The numbers speak for themselves: within Cascades, more than 1,000 employees make weekly donations to Centraide Centre-du-Québec, for an average weekly contribution of $ 4.60.

The organization’s mission is to end the cycle of poverty and isolation by taking action in areas that are likely to result in lasting and significant improvements in people’s lives, in partnership with local organizations. Donating to Centraide means helping the less fortunate regain control over their lives. Life has its hardships. And everyone goes through tough times, states Isabelle Dionne, Executive Director of Centraide Centre‑du‑Québec.

Cascaders should be proud of the difference they are making in thousands of people’s lives each day!

Curious by nature, her work as a Communications Advisor means that she gets to learn new things about new topics every day. “I enjoy sharing with Cascaders who work in fields other than my own. I believe that this quality is absolutely necessary for anyone working in areas related to communications. I am proud to work for a company that is responsible, people-oriented and transparent. Cascades has a very distinct personality which, in my opinion, makes it a jewel of the Québec business community.”
