'Tis the Season for Giving
Aplin employees, in United Way colours, celebrating charitable campaigns in Calgary, Halifax and Toronto.
David Aplin Group is committed to giving back to the communities in which we work and has been a strong supporter of United Way for many years.
We run an annual workplace United Way campaign nationally and match employee pledges across Canada. With an impressive 93% participation rate in 2013, David Aplin Group and its employees donated over $67,000 to local United Ways in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Mississauga, Ottawa and Halifax.
“We’re not just saying to our employees ‘you should do this.’ We’re saying, ‘we should do this’, and in that sense, we’re leading by example.” says our CEO, David Aplin. With 7 of our 10 branches achieving a 100% participation rate, it’s clear that our employees value the importance of giving back!
“United Way does a great job of allocating funds and resources to those in need within the communities they serve. We are proud of our relationship with them.” says Paresh Mistry, Managing Consultant and Principal of our offices in the Greater Toronto Area.
Our Edmonton branch was recently recognized by United Way of the Alberta Capital Region with an Award of Distinction for the "Largest Campaign - Under 50 Employees".
David Aplin Group is proud of its affiliation with United Way and looks forward to many more years of continued partnership.
