We give back!

Our GiveBack program is an extension of our Open Book Management system,  which engages and educates our team, generating thousands of dollars for charity – over $125,000 to date in cash and in-kind donations – while giving our team a voice in their workplace and a positive relationship with their community.

Inspiring

Positive impact

Our annual GiveBack impact is four-fold:

  1. Donate $1000 each to two local charities in June and December.
  2. Provide $1000 for the “Creative Roots Landscaping Growing Opportunities Bursary” through the Central Okanagan Bursary and Scholarship Society for a local graduating student.
  3. Donate $100 quarterly through 100 Heroes Who Give a Damn! – Kelowna for a variety of local charities.
  4. Yard Angels provide expert landscape maintenance service to three deserving Kelowna residents. One each in spring, summer and fall.

The Yard Angel project aims to lighten the gardening load for three Kelowna residents suffering from a debilitating illness or injury who are unable to care for their yards. It’s an inspiring way for us to contribute to the community doing what we do best: landscaping. Three times a year – spring, summer, fall – a recipient will be chosen through our nomination process.

Friends, family, and caregivers are encouraged to nominate people who appreciate and need our expert landscape maintenance service. On the 3rd Saturday in April, August and November, Creative Roots Yard Angels descends upon and completes a yard maintenance miracle at the recipient’s home. We hope our gesture will bring joy, ease the burden and promote healing of a local resident in need.

Yard Angel Recipient Criteria:

  1. Must be resident of Kelowna or West Kelowna
  2. Must be hospitalized or bedridden when nominations are open
  3. Must have a yard that requires maintenance

Nominations are currently OPEN.

2020 Nominee date TBD

A few of the charities we’ve contributed to:

Creative Roots Landscaping operates using an Open Book Management system. It includes weekly meetings to discuss the finances of the company, ways to succeed as a team, and the impact that success will have on the bottom line. Each employee donates an hour of their wages for these meetings to the GiveBack program, providing between $800 and $1000 per month. This 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.
