Cenovus employees dig deep and give back

November 2017 - The numbers are in and once again, Cenovus staff showed their generosity and their support for community during this year’s Thanks & Giving campaign.

Thanks & Giving is an annual Cenovus event during the month of October where we support our employees’ charitable giving to registered charities that are meaningful to them and the company matches their donations, dollar for dollar. Employees also participate in volunteering events and food drives to support local charities.

This year, employees donated $736,228, which was matched by Cenovus to total more than $1.47 million. On top of that, staff also rolled up their sleeves to help out at volunteer events in their areas and to bring in food donations for their local food banks.
