The Together Project represents the collective charitable efforts of Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries and its employees working together to improve the quality of life for Manitobans.
Every day, Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries employees volunteer, make payroll donations through our corporate Charitable Giving Campaigns (United Way and All Charities), or are involved with the Employee Charity of Choice program, all of which make Manitoba a better place to live.
The Employee Charity of Choice is a program of Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries – The Together Project™ that supports capital projects or programs that benefit children and youth in Manitoba. The program engages employees by enabling them to vote for who will be the Charities of Choice.
