Raymond James Cares
In 2016, we volunteered 2,218 hours and donated 3,722 lbs. of food across Canada. Our goal this year is to show Canada how much we care by donating 2000 plus volunteer hours at a range of charity organizations across the country and 1000 lbs. of non-perishable food to local food banks.
Raymond James encourages our volunteers to choose a charity they are passionate about. We encourage people to step up and be leaders and to share their passion of community involvement with their colleagues.
58 charities benefited from our collective efforts, including; Ronald MacDonald House, Start2Finish, The Scott Mission, Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Canada, YWCA and many more.
Throughout the month of May, branches across the country also collected non-perishable food items for food banks across Canada. There were competitions in branches, contests to raise money to buy much-needed items such as baby formula.
Across the firm, people volunteered their time and talents to make a difference in the lives of others.
We are looking forward to an even more successful Raymond James Cares Month this year as we show Canada how much we care!
