Volunteer awards celebrating community leadership for Canada 150
In support of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Envision Financial is celebrating community leadership across British Columbia by recognizing local volunteers who are making meaningful contributions in our communities. Do you know someone who’s making a difference? Is it you?
Throughout 2017, we’re selecting 52 volunteers who are devoted to developing positive and vibrant communities. That’s one person every week from regions throughout BC. Nominate an inspiring volunteer and he/she could be eligible to make a $1,500 donation, courtesy of First West Credit Union, to the non-profit or charity of their choice.
We like to think of it as simple generosity.
The stories behind #SimpleGenerosity
Behind every dollar awarded there is a story of inspiration and generosity. We’re proud to share these stories – stories of your community – with you.
Paul Belhumeur and his colleagues with Re/Max 2000 Realty are donating their $1,500 award to the Surrey Food Bank. Every second month, Paul and his team take a full day out of their busy lives, roll up their sleeves and get to work at the Surrey Food Bank sorting food and serving on the front line. Always enthusiastic when interacting with clients, their positive energy is infectious! This rock star team started volunteering in 2013, and donates about 240 hours every year—they know it’s important to do what they can to help those less fortunate in our community. Thank you for inspiring us!
