City Employees Give Back In December
City of Moose Jaw employees took time in December to contribute to local charities in two different ways. Each year the City of Moose Jaw’s Recruitment, Retention and Recognition Committee (RRRC) organizes a “Dress Down Friday” initiative. For a donation, City Hall employees are given the option of wearing jeans/casual clothing every Friday throughout the year. In December, the City of MJ staff handed over the 2016-2018 proceeds to various local charities as follows: • 2016 - $1,046.50 – Moose Jaw Humane Society • 2017 - $636 – Hunger In Moose Jaw • 2018 - $1,267.50 – Riverside Mission Additionally, in 2018 the Treasury Dept. of the City’s Financial Services branch began a Community Outreach pilot project. The project allows employees to spend scheduled time volunteering with local charities. The project was initiated as way to not only assist local organizations but provide an avenue for City employees to develop personal and professional skills. In December, volunteers spent time helping at the Moose Jaw Humane Society and Hunger in Moose Jaw. The group looks forward to more volunteer opportunities in 2019!
