Volunteering Initiatives

Our Crew Cares initiative provides employees with opportunities to volunteer within the communities in which we live and work. 2022 saw a reboot of the Crew Cares program after local COVID-19 restrictions began to ease. With a target of 120 volunteer hours over the year, Crew far surpassed that, volunteering 158 hours.

To kick it off, Crew selected Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids (“BB4CK”), an organization that has developed a school lunch program for kids that may not have the luxury of eating lunch daily. On average, BB4CK feeds 4,000 to 5,000 kids from kindergarten to grade 12 daily across more than 200 schools in the city. In March, Crew had 10 volunteers working with the dedicated staff and volunteers of BB4CK to make lunches for the program.

June saw the “Crew” on a week-long blitz with The Mustard Seed working across various services offered in Calgary. 24 Crew employees worked over four daily shifts, making sandwiches in the hundreds, sorting clothing and goods donations at the warehouse, or serving the Crew-sponsored lunch from the downtown shelter. We were honored to contribute to the great work done by the Mustard Seed in caring for individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty.

In September, we volunteered with Discovery House, an organization that offers safe spaces for women and children escaping domestic violence. Our main task was to assemble new furniture for the 19 individual apartments within the shelter. Crew is proud to work with organizations that care for and support our community’s vulnerable members.
