Envision Financial donates $44,000 in the community

Employees have committed to regular payroll deductions.

Envision Financial employees are committed to making a difference in the communities they serve, and have pledged more than $44,000 to local charities and community organizations in 2013.

“Our team has developed a reputation for giving generously of their time and funds to help those in need in our local communities,” said Shelley Besse, president of Envision Financial.

“These pledges will go a long way in improving the lives of individuals and organizations across our region. I am so proud of the Envision team’s commitment to making a meaningful difference in our local communities.”

Causes that will benefit from Envision employees’ generosity include local food banks, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice Abbotsford and the United Way.

Employees have committed to regular payroll deductions that will exceed $44,000 over the next 12 months on top of other regular giving and volunteer programs.

Leona Fleck, branch manager at Envision, said, “A few years ago, Envision enabled me to work for the United Way on loan, where I came face-to-face with the kinds of organizations our employee giving campaign supports – organizations that feed the hungry, provide services for children and run transition homes.

“It had a huge impact on me and I feel proud to be part of an organization that encourages its employees to give back.”
