Good for Small - The Power of Small Businesses in their Communities
Moneris celebrates Canadian businesses all year round, but October is extra-special – it’s Small Business Month! As a proud partner of small businesses across Canada, Moneris has partnered with RMHC Canada to showcase just how big a small business can be in their community.
Throughout the month of October, Moneris – alongside their small business customers– will donate $200,000 to RMHC Canada.
The generous spirit of Moneris and Canadian small businesses will enable 1,190 nights of stay for families with sick children, ensuring that they can remain together and close to the care they need.
Hear from Jonathan Claveria from Peace Collective in Toronto, a Moneris small business customer, and learn about his personal connection to RMHC and the importance of supporting community for the Peace Collective brand.
