Economical employees celebrate GivingTuesday by donating $65,000 to Canadian charities

WATERLOO, ON, Dec. 3, 2019 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --

This GivingTuesday, Economical Insurance is granting donations to 14 community-based organizations across Canada through its employee-driven Choose Your Charity program.

Giving back to communities has always been and will continue to be a part of the story that defines Economical. This year marks the fourth anniversary of Choose Your Charity, a program that empowers employees from the Economical family of companies to nominate and vote for charities in their regions across Canada to receive individual donations of $5,000. Since the program's inception, Economical has granted $222,500 to worthy causes nationally - including this year's total of $65,000.

"Economical Insurance is committed to supporting causes that drive positive change in the communities where we live and work," said David Bradfield, Vice-President, Marketing and Communication at Economical Insurance. "We're proud to continue building a legacy that enables our teams to advocate on behalf of the causes nearest to their hearts."

Each organization benefiting from this annual giving campaign is making a difference in the communities where Economical employees, brokers, and customers call home.
