To date, the EQUS Community Connection
has helped raise more than
for the betterment of
communities in rural Alberta.
EQUS employees are committed to making a difference in the communities we serve. The Employee Community Connection (ECC) Committee is an employee-run charity committee dedicated to making a difference year-round throughout our Service Area.
All funds raised by the ECC Committee go towards a charity-of-choice that is carefully selected to ensure the greatest benefit for those Albertans living in rural areas. For 2017, the ECC charity-of-choice is our local food banks.
EQUS employees at all three of our offices collect funds through the following staff events:
- Themed staff lunches
- Garage sale
- 50/50 draws
- Vending machine revenues
- Christmas Cookie Stroll
- Christmas party silent auction
In addition to these events, EQUS Area Offices compete in a Christmas food drive to collect non-perishable items for our local food banks.
The ECC Committee also benefits from the annual EQUS Charity Golf Tournament. With help from sponsors and donors, EQUS raised $18,316 from this event in 2016, and hopes to surpass this amount in 2017.
All members are free to purchase electricity services through EQUS’ regulated rate tariff or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase electricity services from, you will continue receiving electricity from EQUS.
