Community involvement is important to us! We believe strongly that we should give back to the communities we work in and have had the wonderful opportunity to meet some fantastic folks along the way. Here are some we have been fortunate enough to align ourselves with:

Enriched Bread Artists - Diane and Jen

With our personal interest in the local art community, sponsoring the Enriched Bread Artists has been our privilege since 2014. The Enriched Bread Artists is a nonprofit, artist-run space dedicated to the production and development of the visual arts by providing affordable studio space, located in Hintonburg.

We have been happy to support the Old Ottawa South Community Association with t-shirts for their after school program and their Homes Between the Bridges Home Tour, held May 31, 2009, which featured six unique homes in the neighbourhood for ticket holders to visit. The proceeds from the Homes Between the Bridges event went towards the Old Ottawa South Firehall Community Centre redevelopment fund, now a truly wonderful hub for the community.

The City of Ottawa Archives held a daily exhibit to celebrate Ottawa’s rich history of contribution to Canada’s favourite pastime. Our wonderful city has helped shape and mould the sport of hockey over the last 125 years and we were proud sponsors of the event which provided information to visitors of the City of Ottawa Art Gallery, through artifacts, images and trivia.
