In this season of giving, group insurance specialist SSQ Insurance has once again shown its commitment to service by way of its annual fundraising campaign.
In the last few years, Quebec City-based SSQ Insurance has donated over a million dollars to regional causes. This year, the company made a substantial donation of $81,662 to Œuvres Jean Lafrance, an organization whose mission is to assist and support underprivileged boys.
In addition to the amounts collected from providers and partners, SSQ Insurance also gave $2 for every kilometre ran or walked by its employees and their family members during the annual SSQ Quebec City Marathon. An extra $5 was donated for each SSQ Health 5K registration, and all participants could also make their own donations.
“For SSQ Insurance, communities make us want to be socially committed,” said Jean-François Chalifoux, chief executive officer of SSQ Insurance.
“We are proud of the important contribution we’ve been able to make to the community over the last 13 years. What’s more, we are happy to announce that we recently renewed our association as title sponsor of the SSQ Quebec City Marathon for the next five years.”
