This is the sixth year that the staff of Intact Insurance has worked hard in supporting Grandview Children’s Centre. Not only has Intact Insurance continued to support Grandview through generous donations, but also through their volunteer work as well!
On August 30, 2018, 24 Intact Insurance employees left their busy desks to help give the Ajax Grandview location a fresh new coat of paint! The team worked diligently all day to give most rooms at the Ajax location a fresh coat of paint, giving the entire space a new look!
“We love Grandview and we’re a big supporter of Grandview. We came last year and did a lot of painting at the Oshawa site. This year we decided to volunteer our time at the Ajax site. We just like to give back to the community. We are one of the bigger employers in the Durham Region and it’s a great opportunity for us to give back to our community,” said Marie Poce, a Commercial Lines Underwriter at Intact Insurance. “We spend so much time in our day to day jobs, not really looking outside of what we do, so this is very rewarding for us to be able to come out and give back and see the smile on everyone’s faces when the job is done and everything looks nicer and fresh!”
Not a single Intact volunteer complained as they taped, painted and cleaned up each room. The Ajax location was full of positive attitudes and smiling faces as the team got the job done!
Grandview is so thankful for this hard work
“We feel very fortunate to have Intact here today, because the Ajax site hasn’t had a freshen up in awhile, since the big flood. So it’s really nice to have that special attention and have something nice and fresh for the families here in the Ajax and Pickering area,” said Janet Isaac, Clinical Manager at Grandview Kids. “It’s really wonderful to have community partners that want to help us and the kids of Grandview.”
From all of us here at Grandview Kids, we once again thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope that your amazing team decides to visit us again next year!
