National Bank will donate $1 million to support several community organizations that help vulnerable people across the country. These organizations have to quickly respond to increased demand resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds will be distributed to a number of food banks from coast to coast, two organizations that support women in vulnerable situations, and the Canadian Red Cross campaign.
Members of the public can also make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross campaign using the organization’s online platform. National Bank credit card holders can use their rewards points to make a donation on the Bank’s à la carte rewards online platform.
“I'd like to commend the work of all community sector employees and volunteers who are currently on the front lines protecting vulnerable citizens and meeting their basic needs,” said Louis Vachon, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Bank. “For many years now, National Bank has been supporting hundreds of organizations that play a key role in Canada's social and economic development, even during uncertain socio-economic times like these.”
