RONA Foundation donates over $1 million – improving children’s quality of life

The RONA Foundation, which oversees the philanthropic activities of RONA inc., one of Canada’s leading home improvement retailers operating the Lowe’s, RONA, and Réno-Dépôt banners, is pleased to announce a contribution of $1,017,200 to Opération Enfant Soleil (OES) and Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). From March 27 to May 5, 2023, employees of the corporate and affiliated stores across the country, at six distribution centres, and at the Boucherville head office mobilized to collect donations in-store and online, to sell tickets, and to solicit suppliers.

“Helping to build stronger communities is part of our DNA at RONA. Our employees are proving it once again with this campaign. The year 2023 marks the 25th anniversary of the RONA Foundation, which has redefined its mission for the occasion,” says Josée Lafitte, Director of the RONA Foundation. “These are challenging times, both economically and socially. The needs of organizations are greater than ever, and our teams are working hard to support them. I am proud of RONA’s commitment to the philanthropic activities under the RONA Foundation.”

RONA Suppliers at the Service of the Québec Community

In Québec, once again this year, RONA and its suppliers have put their expertise in the home improvement sector at the service of the Maison Enfant Soleil designed by Bonneville as the official supplier of materials. Thanks to the generosity of 14 of its suppliers and a corporate contribution, the network has maximized its sponsorship to a value of $129,645, covering almost the entire cost of building materials for the house. In addition, participating Québec stores sold raffle tickets for a chance to win the house.

A New Mission to Mark and Important Milestone

The RONA Foundation recently marked its 25th anniversary with a new mission: to help improve the quality of life of Canadians in need by revitalizing their living environments or make it easier to access housing. In particular, it aims to help victims of domestic violence and their children, low-income families, and people with special needs or mental health issues.
