Community engagement

 

OPÉRATION ENFANT SOLEIL

Lumen is proud to raise funds every year since 2005 to the non-profit organization Opération Enfant Soleil. Employees donations are deducted voluntarily on their payroll or through various fundraising activities. For example, head office employees organize a dessert table during the holiday season. Volunteers bring a dessert they have prepared and employees are invited to enjoy these sweets, and at the same time can donate for the cause. The check is presented each year during the Opération Enfant Soleil Telethon.
