“To be able to have my son out here, you have a feeling of acceptance through a company. You have a real family orientated feel, you feel like you belong to something with Centra,” says Centra Installer Tim Sjoquist.
Tim and his son Noah volunteered their time to help install windows for the winners of our 2018 Centra Cares Home Renovation Contest. The duo spoke about their experience and the importance of family within a company. While on site, Noah learned a few tips and tricks from his father and displayed flashes of potential.
The Centra Cares Foundation has raised $250,880 in 2018 and donated $158,254 to 20 charities throughout the year. We would like to thank all those that have donated to the Centra Cares Foundation and we are excited to continue to support communities across B.C. Take a look at a few highlights from earlier this year! Stay tuned for more!
The Centra team celebrated in Victoria with the winners of our 2018 Centra Cares Home Renovation Contest. Families, neighbours and many members of the Centra family were in attendance, enjoying the day and transforming the look and feel of the Rankin & Nelson residence.
We are so grateful and blessed to have the opportunity to support and change the lives of a deserving family. We were overwhelmed with the strength of the local community and couldn’t be happier to be a part of it. Congratulations to Melissa Rankin & Josh Nelson!
A few members of the Centra Cares committee had the honour to visit Canuck Place Children’s Hospice David Lede House in Abbotsford. The warmth, love and passion throughout the facility speaks volumes about the importance of Canuck Place in our community. Centra Cares presented a cheque to members of Canuck Place for $81,804.
The funds will go towards supporting the long term version of providing counselling and nursing services to many families. It was gratifying to listen to many stories and experiences about families throughout B.C. and we are so happy that this type of donation will support various services provided by Canuck Place. Take a look at our latest video where members of Canuck Place illustrate the importance of their partnership with Centra Cares.
We have our winners for the 2018 Centra Cares Home Renovation Contest! Centra would first like to thank everyone who took the time to nominate a family that they felt was deserving of new windows. We had over 300 nominations submitted, which made the decision process extremely difficult. We would also like to extend a huge thank you to Cardinal IG Glass Industries for donating the glass for these windows. Congratulations to Josh and Melissa and the entire family. Thank you for sharing your story.
