There’s a spirit of community that defines the Maritimes. We are connected by a deep-rooted desire to give what we can to our family and friends, whatever they need. It’s a spirit we share at Baxter, and with our whole Saputo family. And it goes beyond delivering fresh, wholesome taste to your family every day.
From charitable events to nonprofit organizations, discover what the Baxter family of employees is doing in the community to make a better day for us all.
On Thursday, April 8, 2010, Baxter Milk joined with other businesses in the community in support of the P.R.O. Kids Out of the Park FUNraising dinner. Held at the Delta Brunswick Ballroom, this dinner is an annual event that raises funds for P.R.O. This nonprofit program, operating out of the Leisure Services Department of the City of Saint John, provides funds for youth to get involved in recreational activity. This year’s guest speaker was Silken Laumann, a championship rower who won a silver medal at the 1996 summer Olympics in Atlanta.
Baxter’s family of employees across the Maritimes donated for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Across the country Saputo, through matching funds and their corporate donation, raised money for Haitian Relief efforts.
Our Saputo family is always ready to lend its support to our community. The Maritime employees donated through payroll deductions to the 2009 United Way Campaign.
For more than 20 years, Baxter’s Saint John employees have been making the season bright for hundreds of families in need. Through our employees’ generosity, we were able to help a few families have a Merry Christmas in 2009.
