Together we're one for the United Way


​ENMAX held our annual workplace United Way campaign from September 15 to 30. Despite a challenging economy, our team came together to deliver our most successful campaign yet. View some of the highlights of our 2016 campaign.

A record 62 per cent of the ENMAX team pledged their support, besting last year's record of 55 per cent and raising $343,400, for a total of $686,800 with ENMAX-matched funds. From the matched dollars, 10 per cent of the funds will be divided and donated to the United Way in Edmonton and Fort McMurray.

"It is so inspiring to see the spirit and collaboration that took place across ENMAX as teams came together to achieve results beyond my expectations," said Brandy Prefontaine, Director, ISPM and 2016 United Way Chair. "The United Way knows where assistance is needed most across Alberta, and the efforts of our team will make a real difference."

In addition to donating, a keystone to this campaign was helping out in the community. The ENMAX team collectively spent 1,800 hours volunteering over the two weeks, including:

  • Making 3,000 sandwiches in one hour, providing lunch for three days at the Drop-In Centre
  • Cooking and packaging 900 servings of food for families via Made By Momma
  • Preparing 400 candy bags for the Distress Centre's crisis line volunteers
  • Cleaning and winterizing 50 yards at homes owned by the Calgary Dream Centre
  • Playing ball with Calgary Dream Centre clients and donating baseball and hockey equipment for future use
  • Serving 500 meals at the Calgary Drop-In Centre and Edmonton's Bissell Centre

The ENMAX team also held a number of fun and educational events in support of the United Way, including the Poverty Simulation, Truck Pull, and Cutthroat Kitchen, a challenge that pitted our executives against each other as they cooked a Thanksgiving meal using a hamper of items provided by the Calgary Dream Centre.

Thanks to everyone who supported our campaign and helped make a positive impact on Alberta communities.
