When Henry and his wife Margaret turned to us for their Waterloo kitchen renovation, not only did it present the opportunity to expand our creative knowledge on a new project; it was a chance to learn more about a family, their history, and the home they cherish so very deeply. Continue reading

We can’t thank everyone enough for participating in our 75 Days of #PuttingPeopleFirst. We heard so many great stories from our friends, clients and our community about how the people they know are living the Putting People First philosophy.

Trudy met Scott & Cindy (pictured) when she moved to Waterloo Region in 2000 and became their neighbour. Both Scott & Cindy have albinism and Trudy has been supporting the NOAH organization through their annual bowl-a-thon for many years.
The NOAH organization provides accurate and authoritative information on living with albinism. They provide a safe and supportive space where people living with albinism and their families can find acceptance and fellowship.
Our 75th Anniversary Give Back campaign presented a wonderful opportunity for Trudy to go above and beyond her personal contribution and further show her support to her neighbours turned friends. Continue reading
Our team member Jeff had been contemplating for some time about where he wanted to focus his contribution for our 75th Anniversary (RAK) Random Acts of Kindness campaign. Jeff’s brainstorming eventually led him to a very basic but very essential necessity in life, “we all need food to eat” he said.

One of the many campaigns we are running for our 75th year in business is for each of our team members to choose where our company should donate $500 in Waterloo Region. Art’s community donation will be to Hope Spring Cancer Support Centre in Kitchener.
Art says, “I wanted to use my funds to support an organization that is dear to my heart. In this order, my Grandmother, my Aunt, my Brother, myself and my Mom have all had personal battles with Cancer. My Mom is in the photo above, just before she passed. Of the five, two of us are still here to talk about it and grateful to organizations like Hope Spring for the great work that they do!” Continue reading

As part of our 75th Anniversary, we have given each of our team members $75 to go out into the community and commit some acts of kindness!
One of our team has already commented, “It is a weird thing that happens as you go from a brief moment of stressing about intruding on strangers in a line to wanting to look after everybody! It feels awesome!”
One of the many campaigns we are running for our 75th year in business is for each of our team members to choose where our company should donate $500 in Waterloo Region. Our first donation is being given to REEP Green Solutions.
