Community Spirit

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:

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention & education programs. We love that 100% of funds raised really go to support these women and children across Canada. We are proud to be a Top 10% donor, and have been sharing a portion of our commission from each and every sale, since 2012. We support this wonderful charity in every way we can, allocating to local shelters whenever we can.

The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group

The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group is a volunteer-driven community group working to enrich the Glebe community by delivering recreational, cultural and social activities and services. We are proud to support the Glebe House Tour each year, and to have donated items to benefit the kids in their programs.

Enriched Bread Artists

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.

Elmdale Public School Fun Fair and Silent Auction

We are proud to sponsor this neighbourhood school’s Fun Fair each year. The proceeds raised from this fun event help support initiatives that do not receive support from Ottawa Carleton District School Board, such as technological teaching aids within classrooms, art supplies and music programming, inter-city busing services, and so much more.

Boomerang Kids Strollercise

Boomerang Kids Strollercise program has been providing emotional, physical and social support to thousands of parents in Ottawa. A special ceremony of appreciation from the Strollercise participants to Boomerang Kids was held on October 1, 2010 and we were proud to sponsor a commemorative bench, made from 100% recycled materials, which was placed on Echo Drive, kiddy-corner from Boomerang Kids on Bank Street in Old Ottawa South.

The CAG Old Ottawa East

The Community Association Group of Old Ottawa East is a voluntary, not for profit, community-based organization for the residents of Old Ottawa East. We are so proud to be a community partner with CAG to help them offer a range of great programs and activities. You will find us at their annual Main Event every spring since 2013.

The Hintonburg Community Association

The Hintonburg Community Association is a volunteer-led group of local citizens eager to make a difference in the community, and we were proud sponsors from 2009 through 2015, supporting its wide range of events and activities throughout the year, and attending many of the events ourselves! We continue to be involved in this wonderful community.

The Ten Oaks Annual Bowl-A-Thon

The Ten Oaks Annual Bowl-A-Thon is held each year, and we are always proud sponsors. All money raised supports programming for children and youth.

Various community sports teams and neighbourhood schools are always looking for financial support and we are proud to donate ours to the West End Hockey League, Elmdale School, Nepean High School and St. Francois d’Assise, among others.

Ottawa Speciality Food Association (OFSA)

Ottawa Speciality Food Association (OFSA) – We are proud to have been the sole sponsors of the Westboro & Holiday Food Fairs in 2012-2014 in support of the Westboro Region Food Bank. Goodies were plentiful and we were happy to support our own local speciality food vendors and small business owners!

Old Ottawa South Community Association

We have been happy to support the Old Ottawa South Community Association various activities over the years. We love that the Firehall Community Centre is such a hub within the community!
