For the 20th consecutive year, associates at Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc. left their offices in Dorval on Thursday, April 28, to do volunteer work with local non-profit groups as part of the company’s global Community Partnership Day celebrating the 20th anniversary of the company’s creation in 1996.
The event is marked around the world by the 27,500 associates of the company in 84 countries. Among the locations where they helped out was at the Moisson Montréal food bank on Côte de Liesse where Winselow Tucker, General Manager, Oncology, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc., helped labelling and repacking large donated cans of yellow beans.
“We recognize the importance of volunteer efforts in communities where we live and work and are proud to be running this initiative in Canada for the 20th year,” said Timothy Maloney, President of Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc.
The annual Novartis effort is coordinated by the Corporate Volunteer Program of Volunteer West Island.
