We fundraise each holiday season for the Food Bank, we set aside a budget to match employee charitable donations, and we run a charity from our office called Cassie + Friends that is dedicated to changing the lives of children who are living with Juvenile Arthritis. Plus, we give back to the community through each of our new developments by donating $100 per home that is built to the Breakfast Club of Canada to help ensure kids don’t go to school hungry.
