Dumas fosters a philanthropic spirit across our employee base and continuously strives to be a responsible corporate citizen through a commitment to: employing locally in the communities where we work, supporting training initiatives, sponsoring community events, and encouraging employee participation.
Dumas employees generously volunteered hours of their personal time for events within their community, and continuously make significant personal donations to a variety of local causes.
Below are some of the highlights of these contributions:
North Eastern Ontario Family and Children’s Services (NEOFACS)
Since 2008, Dumas employees in Timmins and Kirkland Lake, Ontario, have partnered with NEOFACS to purchase Christmas gifts for children in need and sponsor local families. Thanks to the kindness and effort of employees, their families and friends, hundreds of gifts have been distributed to less fortunate children over the years.
Face Off for Funds
Since 2012, Dumas and its employees have sponsored and supported the Timmins and District Hospital by participating in the Rotary Face Off for Funds 24-hour hockey fundraiser.
Dumas ROCKS for CNIB
Dumas employees sang and danced their way into the judges’ hearts on Canada Sings, taking home the $25,000 grand prize for “Lake Joe,” a fully accessible lakefront facility located in the heart of Muskoka that provides a unique blend of recreation and vision rehabilitation in a safe, inclusive environment. Dumas executives were so impressed by the team’s enthusiasm and commitment that the company also gifted an additional $10,000 to the cause, resulting in a total of $35,000 in support of CNIB!
