L.D. Dermody Insurance has been involved in the community since our beginning. Over the years, the company has developed a program which helps give back to communities where we work and live. We believe that giving back whether through volunteer opportunities or donations, is a way to improve our community for the future.
Employee Volunteer Time
Each employee is allowed time off to volunteer their time at a local nonprofit or to participate in charity events. This is paid time off during the work day for employees to give back to the community.
In the past during Christmas we have supported the Markham Fire & Emergency Services annual toy drive in their support of the Markham Salvation Army and the Markham Stouffville Hospital Children’s Centre. New is our support for Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. Holland Bloorview is Canada’s largest children’s rehabilitation hospital and the work they do they is beyond compare.
