CALGARY, March 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Nexen, a subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, has launched a new community investment initiative called the "Give" card that empowers its 3,200 employees to designate $100 to charities of their choice. The "Give" card was established to commemorate the one year anniversary of CNOOC Limited acquiring Nexen, and to reaffirm CNOOC Limited's commitment to enhance community involvement and investment.
"Through the 'Give' card initiative, we're empowering our employees to help direct Nexen's corporate giving to the charities that matter most to them," says Andrea Bosnjak, Manager, Community Investment. "Our employees help us build stronger and more vibrant communities, so having employees direct $320,000 to the charities of their choice is a key component of our community investment strategy."
To help employees determine how best to donate the "Give" card, Nexen is hosting a fair that will showcase a variety of local charities and the work they do in the community. Employees can network and make connections with these charities to help make informed decisions about where to potentially direct their $100 as part of Nexen's "Give" card initiative.
The fair is only a small representation of the vast number of charities in Calgary and the surrounding area. All registered charities qualify as recipients for the Nexen Give card. The charitable organizations attending are:
