We’re fierce community advocates, and believe that giving back and supporting the causes we believe in is one of the best ways to make a meaningful impact outside of regular business hours.
Derksen Plumbing and Heating and ALS Manitoba
The ALS society will always hold a special place in our heart. No one should go through the pain and suffering so many families have gone through, including ours. We take pride in knowing that with each volunteer hour and each dollar we raise, we are helping those in need and hopefully making someone’s diagnosis a little less scary and easier to bear.
We are one of the Title Sponsors for the Manitoba Walk for ALS, which takes place annually during ALS Month in June. In 2017 2,400 people participated in the event and helped surpass the goal of $250,000.00 raised.
Some of our staff members are on the Committee for this event, and help ensure that registration runs smoothly before and during the event. Our staff, family and friends are the volunteers for this key part. They greet all the walkers and ensure that all forms/money are processed efficiently.
Derksen Plumbing and Heating (1984) Abroad
Our commitment to community outreach has gone global. Since 2011, we’ve teamed up with Canadian charity Live Different to help provide food, clean water, shelter and medical services for the people of Neuvo Renacer, a small community in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.
In February 2015, a team from Derksen Plumbing & Heating traveled to Neuvo Renacer to help build three homes for very deserving families facing the daily challenges of extreme poverty. While building, our team had the opportunity to learn firsthand the day to day struggles these families face, and their tireless perseverance towards sustainable development.
Currently Derksen Plumbing & Heating is sponsoring Live Different in Cap Haitien, Haiti with the construction and ongoing support of the school. The project initiative is to help ensure more local children receive an education.
Derksen is also the primary supporter in the construction of Freedom Village, also in Cap Haitien. Freedom Village will provide transition homes for young girls who have been trafficked. The first phase of the Freedom Village will consist of 4 residences with 6 girls living in each.
Live Different continues to assist local community leaders within these communities. Together we can all affect change. We encourage you to visit their website to learn more about Live Different or connect with them by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
