We are excited to feature Our Place Society in our latest Non-Profit Highlight. In this post we touch base with Grant McKenzie, Director of Communications, about their upcoming campaign, “Coldest Night of the Year.” CNOY encourages the people of Victoria to walk in solidarity to raise funds for the hungry, homeless and hurting people in the Victoria community.
During the week of September 20-27th, 2019, the world saw 7.6 million people take to the streets for “the biggest climate mobilization in history.” Following this impactful event, HeartPress is excited to highlight Sierra Club BC, a Victoria-based non-profit focused on defending nature and confronting climate change. We spoke with Elisabeth Hazell, the Manager of Donor Support and Engagement, about their participation in the climate strikes and the scope of their work here in BC.
Our new series Giving Stories features first-hand accounts of individuals and businesses that give back. Whether donating time, money, items or services, those featured in Giving Stories are making a difference in the world around us and deserve to be celebrated!
This week’s Non-Profit Highlight celebrates the 100th anniversary of Junior Achievement BC (JABC)!
We spoke with the Director of Community Engagement of JABC, Cheryl Borgmann, about how they work to ensure that the natural world will continue to be preserved for its own intrinsic value and for the benefit of all.
