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.
Christmas Toy Drive
Every Christmas we support the Markham Fire & Emergency Services annual toy drive in support of the Markham Salvation Army and the Markham Stouffville Hospital Children’s Centre. The Salvation Army is well known for its great work in supporting local families in need. Going to a hospital can be an extremely stressful and frightening time for children and their families. It makes a huge positive impact to be able to provide the children with toys and activities during their hospital stay.
