It is often said that it takes a community to raise a child – in this case, it takes a community, and caring partners in the community, to build safe homes in which to raise healthy, happy children. 

Gordon Food Service is just such a partner in our community.  Habitat for Humanity has been fortunate to have their significant financial support Canada-wide for many years.  Each year, employees, friends and business partners assist their various business groups raise money through local fundraisers to contribute to the building of homes in communities across the land. 

Habitat Greater Vancouver is honoured to have the commitment of GFS BC and their extended “family” as one of our largest partners and a full home sponsor, through their donation of $100,000 to our upcoming Richmond homes! 

As if this was not already an incredible gift, an energetic team of 17 women (and some men) have taken on the challenge of raising a minimum of $1,000 each in support of our Women Build campaign – also in support of the Richmond homes.  Their team has, to date, raised over $15,000 and is now the top fundraising team for this initiative. 

This outstanding achievement and support of our work is humbling and deeply appreciated by those who will benefit from their efforts and generosity – our families and children!  We know that they are all excited to trade in their office attire for work boots and tool belts for a few days and we cannot wait to welcome them! 

Some of them, pictured here, couldn’t wait and took a trip to the build site to get in the mood!

    Find out about math and play games with your favorite characters like Peg Cat, Curious George, the Cat in the Hat as well as Dinosaur Train! You can find out binary & hexadecimal and also educate your mental math while playing Binary Difficulty. Fun-addicting problem video game you have to prepare the offered wood forms to fit them right into the summary of various forms. Though Counting with Sweet can be an excellent interactive whiteboard tool for Preschool as well as Preschool classrooms, it also functions well for upper qualities that are dealing with much more complex math concepts.

    Have been to 3 restore locations in lower mainland. Prices were way over priced and not consistent with the other stores. Example - drop in round bathroom sink in Maple Ridge was $10 in Burnaby was $20
    Pocket door - same size and pattern $10 in MR & $30
    Bath tubs..., soaker - $100 in MR & $200 in Burnaby. I have done all three of my house renovations from used building supplies places. Habitat is too much money when on a budget. We bought a 6' jetted tub $200 and a soaker tub for $80
    I have a strong believer of recycling just won't be shopping here.
