Change Starts Here: United Way Workplace Campaign

What a successful campaign! Each year our Calgary offices run a week-long fundraising event for the United Way of Calgary and Area.

With a dedicated team of employees from both the PRD and Drilling Services divisions, the week was full of exciting activities to bring in donations, as well as give back in other ways aside from monetary means.

Not only did we raise $235,207.00 for an organization dedicated to bettering our communities, we also contributed bodies and volunteer hours to make a physical, positive impact for local organizations. Eight individuals at Foundation Place now have a brand new patio they can enjoy all summer long; The Clothing Room at the Drop-In Centre had helpful hands folding and sorting clothing donations for those who need them; Clients of the Drop-In Centre received a hot hamburger lunch and were greeted by the smiling faces of SES and MA employees, which by the numerous “thank-you’s” and loud applause the group received as we finished our shift is evidence enough that our presence was received with the utmost gratitude.

Change really does start here.
