MONTREAL, Dec. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - For the 15th year in a row, staff from Hewitt Equipment Limited and its affiliated
companies Hewitt Material Handling, Hewitt Rentals Inc., Montréal
Hydraulique 04 Inc, and Atlantic Tractors & Equipment Limited came
together during this holiday season to answer the call of people in
need and contribute to the well-being of communities across Quebec,
Ontario and the Maritimes. The official unveiling of the 2010
Centraide/United Way campaign results took place during the traditional
Christmas Centraide lunch at our corporate headquarters in
Pointe-Claire in the presence of hundreds of employees. The total
amount of donations topped an impressive $375,523.50. Now there's a
wonderful Christmas present!
Aside from the regular donations obtained via the excellent work of our
solicitors, many activities such as the traditional and very popular
denim-Fridays, the half and half draw and Canadiens hockey tickets
helped raise a significant amount of additional funds. Employees of
the Hewitt Group are devoted and creative when it comes to giving back
to the community and many staff members raised funds by selling baked
goods, fresh coffee and even hugs.
Employees gave from the heart and again this year Jim Hewitt, President
of Hewitt Equipment Limited, agreed to match each and every donation
made by the employees. Hewitt Equipment Limited is very proud to have
greatly contributed to the 2010 Centraide/United Way Campaign.
