Every activity of the Foundation depends on commitment. This is why employee community involvement represents an important aspect of the Foundation’s organizational life.

Social Action Day

Every year in October, the Foundation’s employees take part in Social Action Day. The main objectives of this event, organized by a committee of employees, are to:

  • Mobilize employees around the Foundation’s mission
  • Strengthen team spirit by helping others
  • Encourage employees to get involved in their community
  • Provide tangible assistance to organizations

 

A new formula for the 8th edition of Social Action Day, held in February 2015: snowshoeing on Mont Valcourt, part of the program of the Valcourt fête l’hiver event. It was a great pleasure for the Foundation to join the partners of this event.

Despite Siberian temperatures, young and old, seasoned and armchair athletes, put on their snowsuits and displayed their brightest smiles. Two routes adapted for all levels and age groups were accessible for the occasion, with equipment available for free rental.

A great success!
The partnership with the local players made it possible to offer a bigger host infrastructure and favoured participation by 300 people.
Public enthusiasm for this event gave the Canton de Valcourt municipal council the incentive to acquire land at the base of the mountain with the declared intention of creating trails.
