Supporting Communities With Holiday Giving at Robert Half

By Robert Half on November 17, 2021 at 10:22am

Robert Half’s annual Holiday Giving program has been a signature philanthropic effort for our employees in North America since 2006. Projects typically range from toy, food and clothing drives to bike-building events and adopt-a-family programs. To date, we’ve collected more than 140,000 toys and games for children in need.

During this year’s holiday season, we’re focusing our efforts on virtual drives and fundraising for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Canada (RHMC), Food Banks Canada and other nonprofits in our local communities.

Ronald McDonald House gives families a place to stay together, close to their sick child in hospital. Across Canada, RMHC’s 33 programs provide families with a sick child a home where they can sleep, share meals, do laundry, and connect with other families going through similar challenges, making their journey to recovery a little easier.

Three ways to get involved

To meet the needs of RMHC and other nonprofits during this time, we’ve planned three ways for our employees, customers and community members to get involved:

  • Virtual Wish Drive – Robert Half offices can reach out to a nearby Ronald McDonald House or another local charity they have a relationship with. After learning about what they need, our teams set up an online wish list for toys or household necessities, then reach out to clients, friends and family members to help support the drive. 
  • Holiday Happy Hours – Our teams can select a local Ronald McDonald House or another nonprofit, plan to walk remotely at a time that’s convenient, and apply for the company’s Happy Hours volunteer grants. The eligible nonprofit will receive $15 for each hour walked.
  • Fundraising for RMHC – Robert Half employees can make a donation on our Robert Half Holiday fundraiser and invite customers, colleagues and other contacts to join them. Employee donations are also eligible for the company’s Matching Gifts program.

“It’s inspiring to see the many ways our employees are involved in supporting their communities during the holidays,” said Lynne Smith, Robert Half senior vice president of human resources and compensation.
