‘Tis the season of giving, and we couldn’t be happier about it! One B.C.-based company knows that very well indeed. For the second year in a row, Richmond’s branch of Andrew Sheret has raised money to support DDA clients and programs.
Andrew Sheret general manager Connor Alexander says they have a point system for their own clients who can then donate points for cash that goes toward the non-profit organization Andrew Sheret choses to support.
“We contacted some of our long-standing accounts and asked if they were interested in donating a portion of their Andrew Sheret reward points, which Andrew Sheret matched the amount that they were willing to donate,” says Alexander.
He says seven local business stepped up to the plate to donate. In all, they gave a cheque to DDA for over 35 hundred dollars!
“One hundred percent of donations go towards programs that support our clients to help them reach their potential,” says DDA communications manager Evan Kelly. “We are extremely grateful that Connor and his team, and the Andrew Sheret company take this on to help make a difference in people’s lives.”
Andrew Sheret has 33 branches in B.C. and raises thousands of dollars every year for a variety of local charities and non-profits.
“Andrew Sheret is a family owned company, the company believes it is very important to give back to our local communities in which we operate out of,” adds Alexander.
