Living our purpose by giving back to the community.

August | Backpacks for Kids Initiative Update

Our backpacks runneth over!

It was an A+ effort as our team wrapped up the “Backpacks For Kids” charity initiative in partnership with the CBE. Beginning in July, we began filling backpacks with the school supplies that kids need throughout the year. We asked our volunteers to purchase the requested items based on age and grade level, and they rose to the challenge! It was a popular campaign with our team – but we had no idea it would become a family event! Our VP of Business Development Glen Clark shared the below video of his grandson helping load up some backpacks!

 

 

We couldn’t be prouder of our team for filling 63 backpacks this summer! That’s 63 students who will start the school year fully equipped with all tools they need.

If you have any questions about our campaign, please email bradley.morgan@westcor.net . Thank you for helping us Build a Better World!

Returning the Favour

We believe in the strength of community. Without the support of our community, friends and families, collaborators, and industry peers, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Throughout our years working to Build a Better World, we’ve learned the importance of giving back. We promote Corporate Social Responsibility, a business approach that contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits for all. We focus our efforts on collaboration, reciprocity, and creating win-win scenarios to foster an environment of mutual understanding, growth, and fulfilment. We are proud to give back to the community that has helped shape who we are.

A few of the organizations we have proudly collaborated with over the years:

Calgary Construction Association
Canadian Construction Association
Alberta Construction Association
University of Calgary
Southern Alberta Institute of Technology
Lean Construction Institute
Canadian Construction Innovations
Canada Green Building Council
