ENWIN Utilities Ltd. (ENWIN) recognizes that a strong contribution and involvement in its local community is an integral part of its corporate social responsibility.
ENWIN’s Community Support Program is an initiative that supports local charitable and non-profit organizations. Every year, ENWIN initiates a call for applications from local community groups. These applications are then reviewed by an internal committee composed of team members representing different departments within the organization. The committee reviews all applications and allocates funding based on a predetermined set of criteria. Through this program, ENWIN has assisted key local organizations with over $50,000 in donations every year.
In tandem with the Community Support Program, ENWIN is proactive with numerous initiatives within its local community. In 2022, ENWIN collaborated with the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) Windsor- Essex to provide 700 hot meals to Windsor residents in need. It also supported the Can-Am Indian Friendship Centre, a local group that supports the Indigenous community of Windsor and Essex County by providing funding for cultural and educational programs. Additionally, ENWIN contributed to the planting of over 2,000 trees with Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA). This tree planting initiative was the result of a successful e-billing campaign that promoted paperless billing and culminated in ENWIN receiving ERCA’s 2022 Conservation Award.
ENWIN encourages its employees to engage in local charities and non-profit organizations through its Grassroots Initiatives Program. Through this program, employees may receive matching contributions to the funds they raise for local organizations. Recent recipients have included Hiatus House, Habitat for Humanity Windsor-Essex, Enactus Windsor, Ronald McDonald House Windsor, and the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society.
