Running for children’s health
Stelpro made a $25,000 donation to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation during the Grande Virée des Sentiers du Mont-Saint-Bruno.
Due to exceptional circumstances arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the race was postponed to 2021. However, Stelpro wanted to meet its commitment by becoming one of the Foundation’s front-line donors. This initiative seeks to provide healthcare and social support teams with the supplies they need to curb the impact of the pandemic on Quebec’s sick children. Listening to the community and its needs is a priority at Stelpro.
The Grande Virée des Sentiers du Mont-Saint-Bruno is a friendly race held in a natural and enchanting environment. Each year, Stelpro proudly donates $250 for each member of its team that completes the 5 km course.
“For more than 10 years, Stelpro has been encouraging its employees to get active while supporting a cause that is meaningful to them. This inspiring initiative positions Stelpro as an agent of change in the community, and we feel privileged and proud that Sainte-Justine is the beneficiary of the company’s commitment.”Chantal Soly Associate Director, Philanthropic Development, Fundraising Events, CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation
24 hours to make a real difference!
Two teams sporting Stelpro’s colours braved exhaustion and the bitter cold to complete the three events (running, ski, hybrid) of the 2019 edition of Tremblant’s 24h.
Tremblant’s 24h is recognized as the largest ski industry fundraising event in North America. This initiative raises money mainly for the Fondation Charles-Bruneau, which supports research in pediatric hematology-oncology so that all children with cancer can be cured and live healthy lives.
“All I’ll say is that at 3:00 in the morning, in the cold, you appreciate when it's your turn to get hot chocolate. But when you know what sick children go through, the cold and the exhaustion don’t really signify! I'm very proud of our teams.”Yves Chabot President of Stelpro and participant
Creating small miracles, one donation at a time
As an affiliated sponsor, Stelpro is committed to raising as many donations as possible for Opération Enfant Soleil.
Opération Enfant Soleil raises funds so that all Quebec children can receive the best possible care in their region, as well as benefit from spaces that are conducive to their healing and state-of-the-art equipment in the province’s major pediatric centres.
“Acting as a goods and services partner for the Maison Enfant Soleil project, in addition to having donated $75,000 to date as an 'Entreprise Enfant Soleil,' Stelpro is an important ally that allows us to carry on with our mission and purchase essential items to promote the well-being of children. For example, Stelpro has helped us finance multifunctional monitors that allow us to monitor patients' heart rate, breathing, saturation, pressure and temperature. Thanks to your generosity, we are able to work big and small miracles for children. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”Julie Lemieux President and CEO, Opération Enfant Soleil
The sound of happiness
Stelpro contributes to the Montreal Children’s Hospital’s music therapy programs and Dr Clown Foundation.
The Dr Clown Foundation’s mission is to bring joy to hospitalized children, students in specialized school settings, patients of all ages in Quebec’s general hospitals, as well as seniors in nursing care settings. Music therapy draws on music and other types of art to ensure the well-being of young patients. This innovative technique helps these young people to better express their emotions.
“Since 2014, Stelpro has been helping the Montreal Children's Hospital bring music to the bedside of sick children and adolescents. Thanks to your support for this important program, our two music therapists have worked with 1,850 patients aged 0-17 years in virtually every department. Our music therapy program has also allowed us to replace some obsolete musical instruments and add new technologies to encourage children and adolescents to be more involved in their musical journey.”Colette Vanasse Senior Advisor, Development, Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation
Getting our community moving
Stelpro is proud to be the main sponsor of the Montis Soccer Association of Saint-Bruno, an organization that plays an important role for the youth in our community.
This non-profit organization is dedicated to promoting, encouraging, developing and supervising soccer in Sainte-Julie, Saint-Basile-le-Grand and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.
“As a parent, I always want what's best for my children. That's why two of them play on MONTIS competitive soccer teams. Thanks to Stelpro's sponsorship, it costs less to play soccer at the club; this gives parents a bit of breathing room so that they can concentrate on the essentials. I’m so proud to see the big ‘S’ on all the players' uniforms, knowing that my employer is contributing to the well-being of young people at the local level. Thank you, Stelpro!”Catherine Labonté Product Manager - Heating and HVAC Division
Solidarity and social involvement
Putting the pedal to the metal for our athletes
Stelpro’s commitment to young Quebec athletes shows through its sponsorship of the first stage of the Défi 808 Bonneville. This bike race is structured around 100 km stages that can be completed as a relay or a solo race.
The Défi 808 Bonneville is a cycling event in support of the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence du Québec, whose mission is to support student-athletes, our leaders of tomorrow.
“For Stelpro, it's much more than a challenge; it's a commitment to a worthwhile cause. The Foundation presents models of success and perseverance that encourage young people to be more active, eat better and adopt healthy lifestyle habits. At Stelpro, we fully endorse and support these values! I'm very proud to have participated in this event! Congratulations to my teammates. I look forward to doing it again next year!”Daniel Pellerin Project manager - Design
Building the future together
Stelpro is invested in the Habitat for Humanity organization. By offering its products, time and community spirit, Stelpro hopes to bring comfort and reassurance to those in need.
Habitat for Humanity is an organization that brings together community, safety and pride. Its mission is to help struggling families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership.
“I had the great pleasure of attending the ceremony when Saadia, Mohamed and their three children were given the keys to their new home. Their house was built by Habitat for Humanity, which Stelpro has supported since 2017. By the end of 2017, 121 people, including 78 children, were living in houses Habitat for Humanity Quebec had built or renovated since its inception in 1999. It was particularly touching to see the concrete results of our partnership with Habitat for Humanity Quebec, which allows families to become homeowners and, above all, to enjoy a better quality of life.”Stéphane Lettre Strategic Marketing Director
Ensuring day-to-day well-being
As a proud Quebec flagship company, Stelpro places great importance on helping local organizations, including Action Nouvelle Vie. Stelpro made a $10,000 donation to this organization to support its community.
Action Nouvelle Vie is a local organization that helps ensure the day-to-day well-being of families living in poverty. It meets the basic needs of individuals, with a special emphasis on those of children.
Every month, more than 10,000 individuals benefit from the organization’s actions in collaboration with their partners.
“We've been fortunate to have Stelpro's support for a long time. From the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, they were among the first to support us, allowing us to respond to a significant increase in requests for food aid. Thanks to their support, we've been able to help more than 1000 families every week since the beginning of the pandemic with food baskets worth approximately $300 each.”Suzanne Fournier Executive Director, Action Nouvelle Vie
Working together to end hunger
In addition to collecting food for the underprivileged, the Stelpro team participates in the guignolée des médias by collecting donations at several locations on the South Shore.
Since 2001, the guignolée des médias has aimed to mobilize people across Quebec to collect non-perishable food items and cash donations to help people in need, both during the holidays and in the difficult months that follow. The goal is also to raise public awareness of the problems associated with poverty and to help those who are victims of it.
“The team spirit and good humour volunteering generates are rewarding! After the fundraiser, I feel I’ve done something good for society. This event means a lot to me because I believe that everyone should be able to have a nice Christmas and a good meal to share with the people they love. I will definitely participate again!”Vincent Daigle Customer Service - Project
Providing support in times of crisis
Stelpro knows how important it is to give at the most important times, such as when a humanitarian disaster occurs. The company provides financial support to the Canadian Red Cross for various one-time events. This year, a $10,000 donation was made to support the organization during the COVID-19 crisis, which paralyzed the world in the spring of 2020.
A member of the world’s largest humanitarian network, the Canadian Red Cross strives to improve the lives of people at risk by mobilizing the power of humanitarian action in Canada and around the world.
“In these uncertain times, Stelpro's support allows the Red Cross to tailor its response to the needs that will arise in the coming months and offer help and comfort to those who are most vulnerable.”Ghassan Brax Assistant Manager, Business Partnerships, Canadian Red Cross
