Vote on $10,000 nonprofit donation at the Spring Trade Show

Apr 27, 2016

Syncrude wants people attending this weekend’s Fort McMurray Spring Trade Show at MacDonald Island Park to vote in a special election.

We’re donating $10,000 to one of four nonprofit groups: Habitat for Humanity Wood Buffalo, Stepping Stones Youth Shelter, Some Other Solutions and the NorthLife Fellowship Baptist Church Soup Kitchen.

“All of them are worthy causes who make a real difference in our community. Please stop by our booth at the trade show to cast a vote. The group with the most votes at the end of the weekend will receive $10,000,” says Kara Flynn, Syncrude’s Vice President, Government & Public Affairs.

Syncrude distributes about $6 million annually from its Community Investment Program to programs and initiatives. As part of that investment, Syncrude supports employees and retirees who volunteer with nonprofit organizations that make our community a better place with grants from its Good Neighbours program. Syncrude distributed $311,600 to 92 non-profit organizations through the program in 2015.

Syncrude operates the Syncrude Project, a Joint Venture undertaking among Canadian Oil Sands Limited, Imperial Oil Resources, Mocal Energy Limited, Murphy Oil Company Ltd., Nexen Oil Sands Partnership, Sinopec Oil Sands Partnership and Suncor Energy Ventures Partnership.
