Sears Canada Employee Charitable Fund
Each year, Sears Canada associates give generously to hundreds of causes that make a difference in their communities. They also contribute their time and talents as volunteers to help many charitable and not-for-profit organizations. Through payroll deductions and associate-driven fundraising initiatives, the Sears Employee Charitable Fund helps raise funds for a variety of causes that are close to the hearts of their associates.
Since 1998, the Sears Employee Charitable Fund has been a generous contributor to the Canadian Cancer Society. Each year, the exemplary generosity of their employees makes Sears one of the Canadian Cancer Society’s largest employee group supporters.
Sears Canada Inc. offers Canadian consumers a diverse array of shopping options, with department and specialty stores, Canada’s largest general merchandise catalogue, a comprehensive website at www.sears.ca and a broad range of home-related services.
