Commitment to Corporate Wellness and Community

Dec 14, 2016

CoreHealth employees are committed to our community and created a 'hug in a bowl' through the Kelowna Soup Sisters. Learn how you can incorporate charity with your wellness programs.

In October, the CoreHealth team volunteered to make soup through a wonderful organization - the Kelowna Soup Sisters. Soup Sisters is all about warming the bellies and souls of those who need support.

We learned that our soup would be donated to youth at risk staying at the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs - Youth Shelter Overnight Program.

Our team had alot of fun chopping, seasoning and brewing our variety of soups - the whole experience was meant to warm the bellies of others but resulted in warming our hearts as well. As a technology company powering corporate wellness programs for organizations around the globe, we just knew this was a trend we wanted to continue.

So much so that it prompted us to ask "what else can we do for the Shelter?" Jenn Paquette, the leader of the Youth Housing Support Program, provided us with a 'wish list' of items the youth could use. Since winter was fast approaching, hats, warm socks, mitts along with toiletries were top of the list.

The team collectively pitched in from their personal pocketbooks and made donations of cash, backpacks and good wishes.

ENGAGE EMPLOYEES IN COMMUNITY

We are seeing more customers incorporate giving into their corporate wellness programs with great success. A global health and care organization launched a wellness challenge that got people moving while giving back to the community. Employees got fit, had a lot of fun, and non-profit organizations like Unicef and local charities benefited too. Talk about paying it forward!!!
