Food Banks

Feeding Canadians ... together

Shaw employees are ambassadors in their communities,
rallying to support our national Fill the Food Banks
initiative, a part of our Together Is Amazing campaign.

schools and churches from September 20 to
November 15, 2010, and raised 2.6 million pounds
of food to donate to food banks across the country.

In Shaw tradition, our employees demonstrated the
amazing things we can achieve when we work together.


Warm it up

Since 2006, Shaw employees across Canada have helped those in need thorough our Season of Warmth employee giving program. Ornaments are purchased and proudly hung from Shaw's lobby trees with all proceeds being matched by Shaw and donated to local charities across Canada in the communities where we operate. To date, the program has generated more than $350,000 in employee donations matched dollar-for-dollar by Shaw.
