Missing Children Society of Canada: A New Bison Cares Initiative



I joined Bison Transport almost two years ago as the Saskatchewan Terminals Manager. It was my first foray into the transportation industry after spending a 32-year career as a police officer with the RCMP. There has been a steep learning curve since I came aboard with Bison, and I was, and continue to be, impressed with Bison’s Mission and Core Values. Not only are these values demonstrated daily with its employee and customer relationships, but also in the spirit of community-giving so often put forth by dedicated Bison staff.

Rising To The Challenge: Blazing Bisons Raise Over $170,000

With the sun hardly over the horizon, more than 100 Bison employees, family and friends laced up their sneakers and took part in CancerCare Manitoba's 9th annual Challenge for Life last Saturday, "Walking It" and "Working It" en route to our organization's most successful fundraising initiative to date. The "Blazing Bisons," led by Sarah-Jane Perrier, a claims administrator at Bison whose incredible story was featured on our blog earlier this year, combined to raise over $170,000, with donations still rolling in. "We pride ourselves on being leaders in our industry and in the community," Perrier said. "As a group, with support from everyone in our company, the Blazing Bison team has brought in an unbelievable $173,578.00 and counting. There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude to those who participated, those who donated and everyone who helped out. We accomplished something amazing!"

Bison Cares: Sarah-Jane Shares Her Story

To begin April, we launched our Bison Cares campaign for the spring, encouraging Drivers and office staff to get involved in local charitable initiatives by making a donation or volunteering their time.

One of the biggest aspects of the Bison Cares campaign is our organization's annual involvement in the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation's Challenge for Life, a one-day fundraising event in which participants can walk for 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) or, as of this year, take part in a 200-minute workout. Last year, our team of 57 walkers raised over $100,000 in this event alone! Click here to read the case study about how we were able to run a successful corporate fundraising campaign!

Sarah-Jane, a claims administrator at Bison, is getting involved by leading the Blazing Bisons in this year's Challenge for Life. Below is her story:

Bison Goes To School: Team Members Work With Local Students To Promote Literacy

It’s no secret that child literacy rates correlate strongly with future success, and with a recent study demonstrating that the number of books in a child’s home is linked directly to academic achievement, the need for promotion of reading, and access to the necessary resources, at a young age has never been greater.

In an effort to promote the importance of literacy in our community, several Bison Transport team members joined Corus Entertainment and First Book Canada this morning to donate books to kids at Winnipeg’s Brooklands School and had the opportunity to sit down and read with them afterward.

"Price is the number one barrier to book ownership." - First Book Canada

Grade one and two students from Brooklands were treated to an exciting presentation by Maureen Fergus, author of The Day My Mom Came to Kindergarten, before signed copies of the book were given to each student to take home and keep. After the presentation, volunteers from Bison and Corus Entertainment read with the students and gave each of them additional books to take home.
