“Living and working in Sherbrooke strengthens my sense of purpose at Kruger Products, where my colleagues and I feel a deep connection to our communities,” said Prévost, manager of environment and continuous improvement.
At the national level, Kruger Products colleagues support communities through initiatives like the Cashmere Collection, a fundraiser for the breast cancer cause, which has raised more than $5 million since it began 20 years ago. Involvement in the fundraiser has been a rewarding part of the job for Jessica Karpel, marketing manager for Cashmere and Purex brands.
“Seeing the idea become reality right in front of you is really moving and fulfilling,” said Karpel of this year’s 20th Cashmere Collection fashion show, which featured a VIP front-row section of breast cancer survivors.
The same is true for Natasha Ramsinghani, associate marketing manager of partnerships, who recalled the thrill of surprising an underfunded minor hockey league association with a donation cheque through Kruger Big Assist, a national initiative aimed at making hockey more accessible for children. To date the program has committed over $800,000 to Canadian hockey communities.
It is truly gratifying to see the impact Kruger Big Assist has had on more than 1,000 kids in more than 40 Canadian communities,” she said.
As leaders in the consumer-packaged goods industry, Kruger Products teams value working for a company where they feel supported in giving back, knowing the business has the interests of their communities today and tomorrow at heart.
