Donating Hours for Dollars to the Central Okanagan Food Bank
The Creative Roots Landscaping Team donated big dollars to Central Okanagan Food Bank in December. How big? They donated $2800!! in order to support the excellent work the food bank does to keep hungry bellies full in the community. In 2020 many folks were hampered by the pandemic. The Creative Roots team wanted to prove they care about the community. They chose to give to the food bank because of the positive ripple effect. It is the perfect charity to donate to because of how many people they help out through out the Okanagan.
Creative Roots Landscaping GiveBack Program
The Creative Roots Landscaping team are dedicated to building relationships in the community. As a result they have donated over $184,000 in cash and in kind!
Creative Roots Landscaping operates using an Open Book Management system. This includes weekly company wide financial meetings. At which company finances, ways to succeed, and the impact that success will have on the bottom line, are discussed. Each meeting, each employee donates an hour of wages to the GiveBack program. So this provides between $1000 and $1400 per month. Which enables the giving to happen!
Over thirty charities have benefited from the Creative Roots GiveBack program to date, including the KGH Foundation, Make a Wish Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Cops for Kids, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Inn From the Cold, HOPE Outreach, Boys and Girls Club and the Kelowna Women’s Shelter.
For the Creative Roots family, giving back is important, and we’re hoping more local businesses embrace the concept of turning their time into money for the good of the community. We live better by giving back.
