At Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries we recognize all of our employees, alumni, and their family and friends who have volunteered in communities throughout Manitoba in the past year.
Last year, more than 580 Liquor & Lotteries volunteers generously gave 8,726 volunteer hours in support of 56 non-profit organizations and sport groups in Manitoba. Additionally, employees surpassed our goal, set by the Canadian Blood Services, by making 179 blood donations. Finally, we’re pleased to announce that we are on-track to exceed our goal of 10,000 volunteer hours in 2016/17, which will result in a $50,000 donation to the Employee Charity of Choice, benefitting children and youth in Manitoba. So, our various programs help to ensure that every hour volunteered has an ongoing impact in communities throughout the province.
We believe community support is about strengthening vital connections with people and their neighbourhoods. Volunteering enriches those who give and those who receive, and it represents an important contribution to our communities and society as a whole.
In keeping with our spirit of community, we happily encourage our employees to donate their personal time and talents to the organizations they care about. It is also an opportunity for them to spend quality time with co-workers, family, and friends, while making a difference in their communities.
We are extremely proud of the volunteer program we have here at Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries and thankful to all of our volunteers who generously contribute their time and effort. Their commitment supports our goals and more importantly grows this program and serves our community.
Liquor & Lotteries volunteers are an integral part of helping us achieve our vision to contribute to our province in meaningful and impactful ways. In today’s world, everyone is busy. We are fortunate to have so many volunteers who understand the impact they have and generously give their time back to our community.
