Gildan is excited to launch its third consecutive Centraide fundraising campaign within its Montreal offices. The funds raised during this campaign will help to support over 350 community agencies in the Greater Montreal area that work to support youth success, take care of the essentials, break social isolation and build caring communities.
Gildan believes that a more sustainable future starts with education by encouraging students to take ownership over the environmental issues in their own communities. The Company has sponsored the Eco-Schools program since 2010, an international organization that uses action-based learning in the classroom to engage youth in building sustainable habits and solutions in their community.

Q: How did you end up at Gildan?
My husband and I were living in Arkansas where I was working for a large retail company. He had wanted to move back home to Charleston for a while, so in 2010 we made the big move. To be honest, I was really sad about it. I loved my job back in Arkansas and I never thought I would find another job quite like it here.
