Inter Pipeliners have been busy spreading holiday cheer, volunteering their time, donating funds and making spirits bright by giving back to their communities this holiday season. Learn more about the generosity of our people and the impact they have made below!
The Value of a Good Meal
Inter Pipeliners supported food banks across Alberta and Saskatchewan this season through friendly competitions, silent auctions and donations of time and money.
- A friendly company competition to raise donations for local food banks had our office locations generously one-upping one another. Through the Food Drive Face-Off, our Bonnyville, Brooks, Calgary, Fort McMurray and Heartland Petrochemical Complex locations collectively raised a total of 17,720 lbs. of food. An additional $2,454 in cash donations was raised and provided to food banks across Calgary, Fort Saskatchewan, Stettler and Strathcona.
- Inter Pipeline’s Community Investment Committees from across the company donated a grand total of $33,700 to 14 local food banks to ensure community members would be covered this holiday season.
- Staff at Brooks volunteered their time at the Brooks Turkey Drive, which purchased and donated 1,765 turkeys for families in need. IPL staff members also spent their time helping with the Scotia Bank: Smiles for Christmas silent auction, answering phones to take donations and bids during the Turkey Drive. Altogether, a grand total of $44,800 was raised for the local food bank, which included a $10,000 donation from Inter Pipeline.
Lending a Hand
Inter Pipeline teams safely gathered to volunteer at local non-profit organizations that make an impact in the communities where we live and work. From sorting and organizing food at the Calgary Food Bank, to helping pack holiday hampers to be delivered to Calgary’s youth with the Calgary Police Youth Foundation, to decorating and making Little Warriors a little more festive in Sherwood Park, these individuals all made a meaningful difference in their communities.
Spreading Holiday Cheer
Inter Pipeliners continued to show their generosity through various initiatives to make an impact this holiday season.
- Staff at our Heartland Petrochemical Complex adopted three Fort Saskatchewan families, providing newly wrapped presents in time for the holiday season. Additionally, the office participated in Santa for Seniors, purchasing gifts for 12 low-income seniors located in Redwater, Lamont, Bruderhiem and Fort Saskatchewan.
- Inter Pipeline’s Community Investment Committees made donations to local organizations across our field locations to spread holiday cheer. These donations totaled more than $30,000 and went towards the following organizations:
