What a great way to wrap up a busy July! On Friday, July 28, the staff at Creative Roots donated $3,000 to HOPE Okanagan.
“We are growing so fast this year and just can’t keep up with some of the things we need,” explained Angie Lohr, President and Co-founder of HOPE Okanagan.
Hope Okanagan provides night time outreach to homeless and/or sexually exploited women in Kelowna’s downtown core and offers a safe house/recovery house to women. To learn more about how Hope is helping people in our community, visit their website: https://www.hope-outreach.com.
The staff at Creative Roots Landscaping Ltd feel it is vitally important to Give Back to the community. Our staff of 17 people donates one hour of their time every week to contribute to the Community Give Back fund. Together, we choose a charity that we feel could benefit from our donation. One of our employees, Sam Ulasy, recommended HOPE Okanagan for this month’s Give Back because her mom volunteers there. After learning more about the organization and hearing first hand what a difference HOPE make in the lives of our community members, we couldn’t agree more that this is a deserving cause.
To-date, Creative Roots has donated over $118,000 in cash and in-kind work to organizations in our community. Could yours be next? Drop us a line and tell us about a cause that is close to your heart
