Reinvesting in the communities it serves has always been important to McDougall Energy. Through its Community Investment Program, the company supports various initiatives and programs that promote the growth of its shared communities around areas such as education, health care, youth team sports, animal welfare and food security.
By supporting local charities, programs, or initiatives, it believes it can enhance the quality of life of others and build stronger, healthier, and more vibrant communities that benefit everyone. McDougall donates wherever there is a need across Ontario. For example, as part of the 2022 Holiday giving campaign, the company donated more than $50,000 to Holiday Hamper Programs across Ontario. McDougall also supports the Edgar Burton Christmas Food Drive in Sudbury; Ellevive in Timmins and Manitoulin Family Resources, shelters for women and children experiencing domestic violence.
Their commitment to helping others goes beyond financial donations. Its employees are involved, too. They’ve contributed their time to volunteering at various organizations, such as St. Vincent Place in Sault Ste. Marie, where the team went to make sandwiches, donate food and serve lunches.
Working with community groups allows its team to connect and bond in a way that is not often seen in typical day-to-day work. These opportunities help develop leadership skills and improve communication, allowing individuals to showcase their unique strengths and passions towards achieving personal and corporate goals.
