The donation comes from RBC’s Day of Service program, which celebrates National Volunteer Week. RBC provides this ongoing program for employees who volunteer in their community. RBC Day of Service Grant is available for teams who volunteered outside of work hours on any day from April 1 to June 14. This grant supports and recognizes employees who respond to a community need that may be a one-time opportunity or helping a local charity. RBC is making a grant of $1,000 to The Health Foundation, which was the charity we volunteered for,” said Gillian Potter, Yorkton Market Manager with RBC.
Our staff volunteer with a number of organizations in the community throughout the year, and many of us participate in other events The Health Foundation holds as well. However, The Health Foundation’s golf tournament fell within the time period RBC had designated for the Day of Service grant, so we thought it was a perfect opportunity to volunteer with The Health Foundation and have RBC make a $1,000 donation in recognition of our volunteer service,” added Ms. Potter
‘The donation from RBC will go toward the Foundation’s campaign raising funds for new patient information monitors for the regional hospital. The new monitors represent a step forward in technology available locally and an improvement in our local healthcare and that’s something that will benefit everyone in this area,” added Ms. Potter.
“We really appreciate this donation from RBC, and we are very pleased to have the ongoing support of RBC staff for many of the events and projects we work on to improve our local healthcare, said Ross Fisher. We are pleased by this program RBC has encouraging staff to volunteer in the community.
