Each year Manulife hosts a Christmas dinner, where employees contribute donations to The Working Centre. Manulife matches these donations, and this year the result was an $8,000 contribution to St. John’s Kitchen.
From their website: “Manulife’s corporate philanthropy operates under a decentralized model that emphasizes giving back to the communities where it does business and encouraging employees to do the same. Local managers choose the area of focus for philanthropy, identify partners and determine how best to encourage employee involvement.”
We greatly appreciate Manulife’s annual contribution – a relationship we have valued for over twenty years. St. John’s Kitchen is supported primarily through community donations like this creative collaboration between Manulife and their employees.
