RJ Cares Month 2016 was a great success thanks to our great people across Canada. Thank you to all the charities who allowed us to play a small part in their great work supporting those in need. We are honoured to have had the opportunity to get a better understanding of the scope of what these organizations do every day. “Participation at the ground level leaves us with full hearts,” says Paul Allison, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Raymond James Ltd.
Thank you to all our Raymond James colleagues who stepped up as leaders. You offered your time to organize events and encourage the people in your teams, offices, and families to get involved and participate. The success of RJ Cares Month would not have been possible without you.
Finally, THANK YOU to every volunteer and food donor! Every hour and pound given has made a difference in the lives of many. We support and applaud the ongoing social responsibility of our associates and their vision to make a positive impact in the day-to-day lives of others. We hope RJ Cares Month has inspired you to continue volunteering and serving the communities in which we live and work.
