Neutron joined other community leaders and organizations for the 1st United Church’s 10th Annual Golf Tournament for the Homeless at UBC on May 29th. The event raised $75,000.00 to maintain their programs on the downtown east side. 1st United is Vancouver’s oldest church and provider for homeless people on the downtown east side. We would also like to give a big welcome to Minister Jim Hatherly who has taken over from Bob Burrows who served for over 5 decades – Jim, you have our support! Also a big shout out to Michael Lansky and his team at Terra Breads for being the key sponsor of this event.
Rick Gibbs, Neutron and Michael Lansky, Terra Breads
Neutron takes pride in working as a team both inside and outside of the workplace. Our staff enjoy taking part in the events we help sponsor in our community.
In January of this year, Neutron donated 10 computers to Quest. These computers were in perfect condition and much needed by Quest to address their expanding services in communities throughout the lower mainland. We thoroughly recommend taking a stop by Quest’s main office at 2020 Dundas St in Vancouver to see for yourself what an incredible organization this is. Visit www.questoutreach.org for more information.
Quest Outreach’s mandate: Reduce Hunger with Dignity, Build Community and Foster Sustainability. Neutron has been working with Quest for the last two years, helping to steer food processors’ unsellable (damaged, mislabelled etc), but completely edible food otherwise destined for landfills to Quest’s markets instead.
With everyone’s schedules during the holidays, participation is no longer restricted to one day, we’ve given you a whole week to GO HUNGRY. What we need from you is an account of your experience. Your outward experience through social media will not only advocate for the cause, but deepen commitment from your supporters!
So, we need you to commit to one of the days and then take a few minutes every two hours to document how you’re feeling. Please share out those feelings via Twitter using the hashtag #beinghungrysucks and if Facebook is your thing, please write a summary and tag it the same at the end of your fast.
Simple, right? This will create groundswell for the cause and allow other people engaging to relate!
On the 21st of January we would like you to invite your most passionate fundraisers, along with a choice group from your leadership, to join us at Save On Meats to celebrate.
The evening will give everyone a chance to meet program users along with key stakeholders and engage in some workshops and talks around the issues. Ultimately we want you to share your experience and help us co-create the change moving forward!
Of course, there will be lots of food representative of the meals that we’ve funded, along with libations from local brewers and distillers.
Space is limited for this event, and we want you all there, so please RSVP in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the many events that Neutron proudly sponsors is the Saving the Girls Charity Golf Tournament, held annually for the last five years. This year’s tournament was the largest yet, raising over $36,000.00 for breast cancer. This year Neutron has also participated in the “BIG 15” (Building Industry Golf Tournament) which raised money for the BC Children’s Hospital Association. Lastly, a fit team from Neutron ran 10K in the Vancouver Sun Run this year! We encourage all of our vendors and customers to get involved in all of these organizations and become a sponsor this year. For more information please contact our office. Check out our Youtube video below from this year’s event – Saving the Girls 2012.
