Waste Management Leader Emterra Environmental Donates $5000 to Central Community Health Centre
Emterra Environmental's $5,000 donation to the Central Community Health Centre in St. Thomas, Ontario comes during Community Health Week, part of Emterra’s leadership and commitment to supporting healthy, sustainable communities across Canada.
Emeterra’s Community CareTM initiative is one the organization developed specifically to link Emterra with community organizations that provide valuable services to community members. The focus is on supporting communities in which Emterra employees live and work, and the clients served within those communities. The goal is to realize healthier, more sustainable communities and positively contribute to creating great places to live.
"We are so excited to be able to acknowledge this gift during Community Health Week," said Judith Wiley, CCHC Executive Director. "We plan to celebrate at our open house on Wednesday afternoon and this donation puts the icing on the cake." She adds that when companies such as Emterra generously donate, they are able to seek matching funds through government funded programs. Thus, the contribution goes further and provides the CCHC a great boost in financial support beyond the initial donation.
