The campaign ended on Nov. 25, and the company exceeded its goal of 50 per cent participation at its 16 branches and six commercial centres throughout B.C., including Abbotsford.

Prospera matched all employee contributions.

Employees have been coordinating workplace campaigns for more than six years, raising more than $500,000.
