In operation since 1927, The Beer Store boasts 645 beer brands in 450 retail stores in communities across Ontario. Corporate social responsibility and community involvement is a core value for the organization that partners with various charities to raise awareness and funds for meaningful causes. Over the past 10 years, together with its employee union (UFCW Local 12R24), the Beer Store has organized the annual Returns for Leukemia Bottle Drive, which has raised over $11 million to date.
iA Financial Group first became involved with LLSC in 2005, when one of their own employees passed away from a blood cancer. Since then, iA Financial Group and their employees have joined together in the annual Light The Night Walk showing solidarity, to help shine a light on blood cancers. iA Financial Group considers the Walk to be one of the most rewarding aspects of their sponsorship because their employees are highly engaged and pool their tremendous energy and commitment in raising awareness and funds.
