City Em­ploy­ees Give Back In De­cem­ber

Moose Jaw - - Faces Of The Region -

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!
