Hansen’s 2019 Educational Fund Recipients

Maire Campbell and Suzanne Payne were an integral part of Hansen’s growth and history.  With more than 20 years of experience each at Hansen’s, their work ethic and devotion to their children and grandchildren was unparalleled.

We felt there could be no better way to honour their memories than investing in the success and future of the children of Hansen’s staff.

2019 is the sixth year Hansen’s is proud to offer these two education funds in their memory to assist our employees and their children to reach their higher education goals and build the most successful future possible for themselves.

Intense competition this year.  We received 9 applications submitted for the 2 scholarships, each one impressive.

Congratulations to our winners!

Hansen’s Quarterly Charity Draw

Congratulations to Dave Dhaliwal, Vancouver Compound Operations Manager, and Kerry Rakestrow from our Auto Hauling team in Toronto, who won our double random Charity Lottery!

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.

As a lover of all animals, Kerry has asked us to support the great work provided by the Humane Society of Durham Region.

Daves donation has gone to the BC Cancer Clinic where his wife Sandy is currently undergoing treatments in her fight against breast cancer.
