Who doesn’t love a local company that gives back? We sure do! It’s International Women’s #EachforEqual Day and we’ve put together a list of Vancouver and Victoria-based companies who not only offer amazing products, but also support women and contribute to increasing gender equality.
When it comes to corporate community investment, Country Grocer is doing it right. First opening their doors in 1984, being leaders in community giving has always been one of their company’s values. Today they receive up to 25 donation requests per week between their seven store locations, and they rarely turn anyone away. We recently sat down with Country Grocer’s Marketing Manager, Tammy Averill, to learn more about why their giving program is so successful!
It may be August, but we’re still making the most of summer! The best way to enjoy your last month of summer is to check out these August events in Vancouver and Victoria. There’s something for everyone!
We don’t know about you, but we’re welcoming June with open arms! To make the most of this month (and the great weather), we want to share some of the Vancouver and Victoria June events being hosted by worthwhile charitable organizations.
When Victorians think of large-scale transport – the kind needed for school trips and sporting events – they usually think of Wilson’s Transportation. And that’s largely because the Wilson family has, for decades, dedicated itself to community involvement.
Wilson’s was founded in the 1960s by the parents of the current owner, John Wilson, who was kind enough to sit down with HeartPress to talk about giving back.
