Throughout the last 40 years, we've placed high importance on being active in our community. As we're taking this month to reflect on the past 40 years, we thought we'd take this opportunity to celebrate some of the amazing organizations we've had the pleasure of working with long-term:

Coquitlam Express, Coquitlam Adanacs & Lacrosse All Stars 

Local sports associations are integral to our communities for so many social and hockey community associatedeconomic reasons, and we're so glad to be associated with each of these groups. The Coquitlam Jr Adanacs, for example, have made it to 8 national championships in the duration of our sponsorship, winning 2 in 2016 and 2018 - we couldn't be prouder!

One Girl Can

One Girl Can was created in 2008 when founder Lotte, originally from Africa herself, began forming collaborative school partnerships in Kenya. Through their three pillars of building, educating, and mentoring, One Girl Can works toward creating opportunities for girls to reach their full potential and empowering girls in their schools to build their confidence. Since their formation, One Girl Can has built 130 schools, awarded over 860 scholarships, and mentored almost 10,000 girls! 

SHARE Family & Community Services Society

What started as a children's clothing exchange in a basement in 1972 has grown to a non-profit, independent, community-based organization that provides leadership and programs in response to the social needs of local residents. These include many in-depth services from programs to support new parents and children with delayed development to independent senior support services and community connection opportunities. Today, SHARE Family and Community Services Society is a registered charity and one of the largest employers in the Tri-Cities, with staff who collectively speak over 25 languages to fit B.C. residents' needs! 

 

Through donations, events, and sponsorships, we love being able to work with incredible organizations that are truly changing the world for the better!
