For 125 years, Grenville Mutual has enhanced people’s lives by contributing to local causes where employees live and do business. It promotes the spirit of neighbour helping neighbour, and is a meaningful opportunity to give back and to do something special.
Grenville is proud to support what it believes in; being a strong community minded company and having respect and empathy for others. The company encourages pitching in when needed, not caring who gets the credit. This spirit was demonstrated when the Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) Foundation received a gift of $1,025 from Grenville Mutual Insurance.
The donation has been directed to the Foundation’s Family Care Fund – supporting care for families just like yours. In celebration of the company’s 125th anniversary, each staff member was provided the opportunity to donate $1,025 to a single charity, or divide between two charities of their choice within the Eastern Ontario Region. “We were so excited to find out that each staff member had the opportunity to donate dollars to a charity of our own choosing,” said Otia Bates, a staff member with Grenville Mutual. “It feels good giving something back to local organizations in this way.”
Otia says she chose WDMH to be the beneficiary of her gift because of the care she received at the hospital. “I had a tonsillectomy at WDMH and the staff did a great job taking care of me.” Ross Lincoln, President/CEO says that a large part of the community work that the company undertakes is planned and coordinated at the grassroots level: “What better way to appreciate our people, and provide a rare and exciting opportunity for them to give back to a cause that means the most to them.”
WDMH Foundation Managing Director Kristen Casselman agrees. “We are so grateful to Otia for choosing WDMH, and to Grenville Mutual for their community spirit and support.”
