The fun started with a rainy set-up and a small snag with the food truck breaking down, but as renovators we are quite accustomed to making changes on the fly so we made up a plan B and everything turned out perfectly. We had beautiful weather the day of the event, and the tent provided by Brad and Phil from Huron Perth Tent Rentals gave us all a shady spot to eat.  Continue reading

RAK from JeffOur 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.

Jeff chose a local grocery store to find a community member who could use help with their weekly grocery purchase. Upon arriving he was faced with his next challenge of who to approach with his donation dollars. How do you choose?! A challenge indeed.

Art and his MumOne 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.

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
