10 Winnipeg Businesses That Give Back to Help Others
1. Parlour Coffee’s Partnership with Main Street Project
For most of 2018, Parlour partnered with Main Street Project. After the central coffee shop was shook by a break-in, the owner of the shop decided to take steps toward positive change. Rather than letting the incident discourage them, the owners reached out to Main Street Project and arranged to donate a percentage of their sales and promote the organization on social media.
For more information, check out Main Street Project’s post about the partnership.
2. Farmery Estate Brewery and KUB Bread Donating Rye Proceeds to Winnipeg Harvest
3. Crampton’s Market’s Food Box Program
4. WRENCH’s Cycle of Giving Project
5. Sweet Impressions Bakery’s Bake the World a Better Place Cookies
10. Wawanesa Insurance's Continued Support of Habitat for Humanity
The final business that we’d like to highlight is Wawanesa Insurance. Founded in Wawanesa, Manitoba, the company has expanded across national borders but still operates its executive offices out of Winnipeg. Wawanesa has a strong and long-standing partnership with Habitat for Humanity, a Canadian non-profit focused on providing safe and decent housing for all. Wawanesa is the major sponsor of Habitat for Humanity’s annual Manitoba Property Insurance Build, which raises thousands for families in need of housing. The business also sponsors most of Habitat’s special events like the Prairie Fashion Show, a major annual fundraising project organized by Women Build. Wawanesa also sponsors Habitat’s Women of Influence Speaker Series, which highlights successful and inspiring women in our community and raises funds to construct a new Women Build sponsored home. In addition to their financial support, each year Wawanesa employees come out to help build Habitat homes!
Thank you, Wawanesa for your outstanding generosity!
