Across the country, everyone is feeling the impact of the unfolding COVID-19 situation. To show our support and gratitude to the frontline health care workers, the Connor, Clark & Lunn Foundation has launched an initiative, underpinned by contributions from CC&L Financial Group and its affiliate companies, including CC&L Private Capital—and indirectly our clients and those who support our firm. The initiative will provide much needed funding to COVID-19-related programs nationally, with donations to aid organizations requesting support for front line health care workers.
At CC&L Financial Group, we commend the incredible job our frontline health care workers are doing, putting their own lives at risk and making many sacrifices, while tackling the virus and looking after the well-being of families, friends and communities. Recognizing the needs of just some our medical heroes immediately impacted, these donations are a first step, and the CC&L Foundation anticipates providing broader support for a wider set of needs related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the future.
During this challenging time, we must all come together in support of our communities, and we truly thank the frontline health care workers’ for their tireless efforts to keep us all safe and well.
