Neutron proudly supports Pink Shirt Day, each year our team dons their Pink Shirt to send the message that Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and over the Internet. It is important that victims of bullying know they are not alone and there is help and support available. Wearing a pink shirt on this day sends a strong message to them that others care. Often, the simple act of wearing a shirt can start conversations – conversations can be a big step towards healing and helping!
We are very proud of the team at Neutron who volunteered at ‘Plenty of Plates’ last night; they showed up at Save on Meats to prepare, cook, serve and clean up a 3 course meal for 70 homeless people on the downtown east side. This event is put together by Ash and his team at A Better Life Foundation. This is truly a great team building opportunity that directly impacts the lives of our neighbors. Neutron’s involvement last night will result in over 1000 meals being made available to Vancouver’s most vulnerable. Neutron continues to support A Better Life Foundation through volunteering and collaborating with other community focused organizations. Rick Gibbs, President of Neutron sits on their Board of Directors.
