FortisAlberta employees earn 2016 Volunteer Friendly Business AwardSep 7, 2016, 11:23 AM
As part of their National Volunteer Week celebration, the St. Albert Community Information and Volunteer Centre presented FortisAlberta with a Volunteer Friendly Business Award. The Award recognizes St. Albert businesses for their contributions and raises awareness regarding the volunteer sector in the City of St. Albert.
Our employees volunteer each year at the International Children’s Festival in St. Albert to set up and take down the large event tents. The Company also supports the Green Team, a group of volunteers that keep the festival site clean and free of debris, as well as paper making workshops, where students learn to make paper from recycled scraps.
“The FortisAlberta team in St. Albert are long-time Children’s Festival supporters. In addition to vital financial support, they provide electrical expertise, equipment and staff support that all contribute to the safety and accessibility of the Children’s Festival site. Thank you Dora and FortisAlberta for your generous and ongoing support for the International Children’s Festival,” says Glennis Kennedy, Director, Volunteer Centre Services.
Now celebrating 35 years in northern Alberta, the International Children’s Festival is one of North America’s longest running and biggest children’s festivals. This magical five-day festival transforms downtown St. Albert, where art, culture and education are only limited to your imagination. Artists and performers from around the world gather to create one-of-a-kind artistic masterpieces offering a truly unique family experience.
FortisAlberta would like to congratulate the St. Albert team for their valuable contribution in their community!
