“One of the marvellous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.” – Jean Vanier
At Paul Davis, we believe that caring about our work, our customers, and our community is an essential part of providing an exceptional service. We believe we have a responsibility to our community to help whenever possible, from being there after a disaster strikes to helping the less fortunate.
As a National partner of Raising the Roof, we are committed to helping those less fortunate through awareness, fundraising, and donation. Each year Paul Davis locations across Canada sell toques bearing the familiar Raising the Roof house logo at special Toque Tuesday events and throughout the winter season. Toque sales will help Raising the Roof’s partner agencies across Canada to provide resources and support to families and youth in need.
This year, Paul Davis bought 10,000 co-branded toques, supporting local agencies in nearly 50 franchise communities across the country.
Brantford Day of Caring – May 22, 2015
Paul Davis Brantford does great work in their community. On May 22, Peter Overgaauw and his team participated in Brantford’s Day of Caring. Here is what Pete had to say about the experience.
“Brantwood Community Services has an agricultural program, where the participants start the vegetable plants from seed. When they are large enough, they transplant them into the accessible gardens and care for them as they grow. When vegetables are ready for harvest, they pick their crop and use them to make preserves for sale. The monies earned from the sale of preserves are then donated to other needy charities. Like Paul Davis and Brant Mutual they are giving back to their community.
“We are very proud to have had the opportunity to work with Brant Mutual and Brantwood Community Services on this project and we wish them good growing weather and a bountiful harvest for their efforts!”
