The most recent Centraide and Red Cross fundraising campaign raised more than $385,000 thanks to the generosity and commitment of Rio Tinto employees in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean. Another $55,000 was raised through various activities organized during the year, largely with the efforts of several retired employees who continue to get involved. In all, the campaign raised $444,000.
The Rio Tinto Aluminium Canada Fund also made a $360,000 contribution, of which $275,000 went to Centraide and $85,000 to the Red Cross.
This year, we have donated over $800,000 to Centraide and the Red Cross, two organisations that help vulnerable people and communities in need to improve their living conditions.
Year after year, many employees in different Rio Tinto facilities in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean come together to raise money for these organisations. We are proud to see our employees demonstrating values such as mutual aid and altruism while generously giving back to their community.
Donations are entirely redistributed to local charities. Centraide supports a vast network of nearly 100 organisations and causes in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region.
Let’s celebrate the commitment and generosity of our employees!
Thank you to all!
