SSQ Financial Group employees rally in support of Magasin Partage

SSQ Financial Group is pleased to announce that it will be participating in the 38th annual holiday hamper campaign organized by Les Œuvres Jean Lafrance in support of its Magasin Partage. Again this year, employees will be collecting non-perishable goods and cash donations so that local families in need can enjoy the holiday season.

Volunteers throughout the company generously donate their time and share their creativity each year to set up festive drop-off points at work. Last year's campaign was a resounding success. A grand total of 8,975 non-perishable goods were donated to the hamper campaign.

"Employee enthusiasm for this initiative is a testament to SSQ Financial Group's commitment to individual well-being and giving back to the community. We're proud of our contribution to the Magasin Partage campaign and ensure that families in need are able to experience the magic of the season," said Jean-François Chalifoux, CEO of SSQ Financial Group.
