Economical Insurance selects charitable organizations

Employees of Economical Insurance have selected 13 community-based organizations that the insurer will be granting donations to as part of its annual charity program.

For this year’s Choose Your Charity program, Economical has given the organizations $2,500 each. Since the program’s inception, the insurer has granted $157,500 – including this year’s total of $32,500.

The program asks Economical’s employees across the company’s 13 locations throughout Canada to nominate local charities “that advance the organization’s overall giving strategy.” The nominated organizations are then put to a vote to determine which ones receive donations from the insurer.

As Kitchener-Waterloo is home to Economical’s headquarters, employees of the area are invited to select two local organizations instead of one.

“Economical’s Choose Your Charity campaign shows that we’re stronger together when our employees give back to the communities supporting our brokers and customers,” said Economical Insurance senior vice-president, chief human resources officer Brigid Pelino.

“Each and every organization impacted through this annual campaign is making a difference in their community, and it’s an honour to contribute to their vital work.”
