FortWhyte volunteers amaze us every time we are on site with their dedication and knowledge. They are always cheerful and friendly with everyone. We are honoured to support all the volunteers which have made FortWhyte Alive the world class facility it is today, and are truly its heart.
- Dawn Fraser, Environmental Manager, Lafarge Canada
There are corporate sponsors, and then there are corporate partners. FortWhyte has truly found a partner in Lafarge Canada, who remains committed to supporting FortWhyte Alive financially through its sponsorship of our Volunteer Program, and also in a number of other important ways. These include partaking in group volunteering initiatives, such as our Earth Day celebrations; participating in our fundraising events; and attending all of our volunteer appreciation events. Lafarge is committed to supporting their communities not just with funding or materials, but also by working side-by-side with its partners. FortWhyte’s volunteers always comment on how impressed they are by Lafarge’s commitment at the community level, and perhaps what makes our partnership so special is the fact that Lafarge staff and executives feel the same way about our volunteers.
Lafarge has a global 2020 Sustainability Ambition to reach one million volunteer hours by its employees. It continues to take advantage of FortWhyte’s many volunteer communities not just with funding or materials, but also by working side-by-side with its partners. FortWhyte’s volunteers always comment on how impressed opportunities to fulfill this goal, and its employees enjoy coming out to volunteer and lend a helping hand in a variety of ways. We look forward to continuing to partner with Lafarge to promote volunteerism in our community.
On behalf of all of FortWhyte’s staff and volunteers, thank you Lafarge for your unwavering support!
