At Okanagan Sundeck Centre, we take pride in our community involvement. Our company has made a commitment to help build affordable housing by donating time and/or materials to various construction projects throughout the Okanagan Valley. We are pleased to be able to give back to the communities that continue to support our business.
Below are some of our more recent projects:
Small businesses play a critical role in supporting local communities, particularly during challenging times. At the Okanagan Sundeck Centre our team takes pride in being a positive impact within the community. By supporting food banks we are doing our part to help provide essential assistance to individuals and families in need.
The Lake Country BC Food Bank is a vital resource that helps to alleviate hunger in the local community.
Sundeck Centre in support with John Groeneveld of Royal York Estates have donated to the Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation this past year. Cops for Kids are committed to assisting children that are in medical, physical or traumatic crisis. Cops for Kids work tirelessly to raise funds to support children in communities across the Southern Interior Region of British Columbia.
This year instead of Christmas Cards, Tuff Industries and Sundeck Centre donated $1500 to the local food bank. Thank you for your past business! Taking the time to see the hard work and dedication of all the people at our local food bank (and I assume the ones in your community as well) gives new appreciation for all the things we often take for granted.
In November the Sundeck Centre joined the “Movember” movement with their stand up team of Geoff, Justin, Mike, and Chris. Their mission was simply to help raise awareness of men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health. With a small team we made a large stand for men’s health, and for all their hard work the Sundeck Centre has donated $400 to Prostate Cancer Canada.
The Under One Roof Partnership
The Vernon and District Community Land Trust Society has partnered with Kindale Developmental Association and Habitat for Humanity to build, as its community project, a six-plex for families and people with disabilities. Support for this project has come from; the City of Vernon, Okanagan College Residential Construction Program, the Province of BC, Heartwood Homes Limited, MQN Architects and numerous businesses and individuals. Residents of the four family units and the two single units moved into their new homes in early 2010.
