Ember Helping Out in Your Community
Employee participation is a high priority at Ember. We encourage a boots-to-the-ground approach and support our employees to volunteer, lend a helping hand and get personally involved in initiatives that are important to them and their families.
RESPONDING TO COMMUNITY NEEDS
Our passion is supporting programs that are brought forward by stakeholders living in the community, knowing they best understand their community?s unique needs. Ember?s charitable guidelines influence our corporate directives in support of those initiatives that have a broad reach and widespread impact in the rural communities where we operate. We do our best to respond to each and every request we receive.
Our greatest reward comes from supporting children?s programs in rural jurisdictions where Ember operates. We support a wide variety of organizations on an ongoing basis, as well as ad-hoc events on request.
A sampling of the rural community initiatives that Ember is proud to be involved with include:
- Hot lunch and breakfast programs at over 40 rural schools
- 4-H youth organizations
- Junior curling leagues
- Regional science fairs
- Community sporting events
- Anti-bullying awareness
EMBER?S FUNDRAISING Surpasses $1 MILLION
At the corporate level, Ember (and its predecessor company, Thunder Energy Inc.) has supported many charity bike ride events since 2001. These deserving charities include the Alberta Lung Association, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Alberta Cancer Society, the Canadian Cancer Society, and our special charity focus of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Coming together as a team, we have a great time while raising funds for the many worthy causes that mean a lot to us.
