Greenergy Retail Canada is committed to supporting its female employees and the women living in the communities it serves. Because women’s health needs are often misdiagnosed, misrepresented, and misunderstood, the company partnered with the Women’s Health Collective Canada (WHCC) to raise awareness and funds for equity in women’s health research through unified advocacy across Canada. WHCC’s founding partners are Alberta Women’s Health Foundation, BC Women’s Health Foundation and Women’s College Hospital Foundation.
From September 13 to October 10, customers, retailers and employees at all Greenergy retail locations across Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia donate to support WHCC efforts.
“We wanted to support the vital work the WHCC is doing to bridge the gap between research and care to positively change the course of women’s health,” says Olga Pigeon, Greenergy’s marketing & convenience retail director.
“Every dollar raised during this campaign goes directly towards research in mental health. We have seen first-hand in our communities and front-line workers the ongoing impact of the pandemic and wanted to support the WHCC who are providing important support for mental health and wellbeing, ensuring that vital resources are available to those that need them.”
