Corporate Calgary is always welcome
Carewest is always looking at new and innovative ways to engage with Calgary corporations. We have seen first-hand how valuable the relationship between our clients and corporate volunteers can be. We have been fortunate enough to work with companies that donate their time and energy to assist with special events, spring and fall clean-up, visiting, donations, etc.
Whether you have a department of five or 50 employees, we can work together to find mutually beneficial activities. Corporate involvement can be a one-time event or on-going.
