Manheim Montreal Supports Cox Automotive Canada’s Back-to-School Drive with Third Annual Vision Réussite
On August 23rd, elementary school yards across Quebec were filled with children making the transition from summer break to the routines and classes of another academic year. Thanks to our Manheim Montreal team, many of these children, who were unable to afford new school supplies, were provided with the items required to help make the 2018-19 school year a success.
For the past three years, Manheim Montreal has participated in Vision Réussite, a back-to-school initiative that provides Quebec children in need with supplies, like math and French textbooks, backpacks, and lunch boxes, among other items.
“Manheim Montreal’s goal was to ensure local students in need were ready to learn and are prepared for success in the classroom,” said Liliane Dubois, General Manager of Manheim Montreal. “Having basic school supplies can make all the difference when it comes to their future achievements.”
Individual and group contributions over the summer – including a company corn roast that acted as a fundraiser – helped to make this year’s Vision Réussite campaign a success. Led by Credit and Collections Officer Johanne Campion, who has been at the helm of coordinating and piloting this project since its inception, the Manheim Montreal team compiled resources and encouraged customers to join in on the social responsibility initiative.
By helping to create improved learning conditions for students this back-to-school season, Cox Automotive Canada has harnessed its power to both boost and enhance the communities we live, work, and play in.
