Community Partner: Qualico

Since its inception, Qualico has supported organizations throughout Manitoba that help build a stronger community.

“In 2015 Qualico went a step further and defined six specific areas that it wanted to support,” says Robert Bulman, Director of Brand Management, Qualico. “Two of these areas included community infrastructure (supporting services that aim to improve the quality of life for children and adults living in Winnipeg); and healthcare and medical research. There is a natural fit between the Children’s Hospital Foundation and Qualico.”

It is a partnership highly valued by the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

“We simply cannot meet our goals and needs without caring partners like Qualico,” says Gary Rozak, Program Director, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. “Qualico has been in our corner for many years supporting events like the Dr. Goodbear Golf Tournament. Their support has been tremendous.”

For Qualico employees supporting the Children’s Hospital is an easy decision.

“Within Qualico we have many employees who have personal stories about what the Children’s Hospital and the Foundation mean to them,” says Bulman. “From newborns with life threatening conditions, to allergies and asthma, the Children’s Hospital has provided a number of our employees and their children with hope and the knowledge that they were receiving the highest possible standard of care.”

Through programs such as Volunteer Day, Acts of Kindness and their Corporate Giving program, Qualico has built a strong partnership with the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. Their amazing staff makes this partnership possible.

“Qualico has a deep rich history of community support backed by tremendous employee spirit,” says Rozak. “Qualico prides itself in enriching our community and through their support they have helped the Children’s Hospital Foundation save lives by helping us purchase costly medical equipment. We are truly grateful for everything they do.”

Bear hugs to Qualico and their amazing employees for helping Manitoba’s sick kids feel better.
