For the third year in a row, 2,000 Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton employees and some 50,000 employees from the Grant Thornton global organization mobilized on September 14, 2018 to give back to communities around the world.
As part of the RCGT in the community event, the firm closed its offices in Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick so that its staff could spend their workday helping 50 community organizations.
More than 150 RCGT volunteers carried out outdoor work at Kawanawa YMCA’s camp.
Emilio B. Imbriglio, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton President and CEO said: ‘‘Our firm has been committed to ensuring the vitality of our communities for 70 years. Building a vigorous economy in each of these communities is what makes society successful and our community organizations play a pivotal role. We are proud to have joined the Grant Thornton global initiative again this year by carrying out inspiring volunteer activities which reflect our corporate values. I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who participated in making a difference during this memorable event.’’
