October 2017 Hansen’s Quarterly Charity Draw

Congratulations to Keith Congdon, Halifax based Auto handler, who won the random Charity Lottery this quarter!

As our company grows, it becomes increasingly important to give back to our communities. With this in mind, in 2014 we started an employee lottery. All of our employees with more than one year of service are entered into a quarterly draw. The draw is completely random and not at all performance based. The winner chooses a registered charity or organization that is important to them, and Hansen’s supports this with a $2500.00 donation.

Keith has asked us to support the Colchester Community Workshop.  This Truro, NS program has been providing vocational skills development and personal growth assistance to adults with intellectual disabilities since 1999.  This program is particularly special to Keith as they support a family member.

Hansen’s Quarterly Charity Draw

Congratulations to Vadzim Yatsevich, Montreal based Auto handler, who won the random Charity Lottery this quarter!

As our company grows, it becomes increasingly important to give back to our communities. With this in mind, in 2014 we started an employee lottery. All of our employees with more than one year of service are entered into a quarterly draw. The draw is completely random and not at all performance based. The winner chooses a registered charity or organization that is important to them, and Hansen’s supports this with a $2500.00 donation.

Like so many of us, Vadzim has family affected by heart disease.  He has asked us to send the donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

9 in 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke.  The Heart and Stroke Foundation not only supports research, but education programs to support better nutrition and exercise programs, immediate treatment as well as improved recovery.
