On Saturday October 1st we attended the 2016 Campbell River Chamber of Commerce Business Awards of Distinction. We were honoured to be chosen as the recipient in both categories that we were nominated in:
Non-Profit of the Year – Sponsored by Marine Harvest
Our non-profit was recognized for our dedication to Campbell River families, engaged volunteer base, community partnerships, homeowner education program, the wonderful support we have received from the City of Campbell River, and engagement with many local businesses.
Social Enterprise Award, sponsored by Coastal Community Credit Union
We received this award for our ReStore operations. The ReStore sells new and gently used housewares, furniture, appliances and building supplies store, all of which is donated by individuals and businesses in our community. The ReStore is supported by a large team of volunteers. Because our ReStore pays all Habitat for Humanity’s operating costs, 100% of cash donations to Habitat and profits from the ReStores go directly to building programs.
Thank you to the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce for recognizing businesses in our community. Our heartfelt congratulations to all the other nominees and award recipients!
