There is no denying it. Giving back to the community is one of the most rewarding feelings there is. Be it a financial donation or donating time, giving back is never a waste of time.
Take January 17 for example. It’s not often that we get the opportunity to have dinner with 382 people. No…it’s not because one of us won the Powerball last week and was able to treat everyone. It’s because we were fortunate enough to spend Sunday evening participating in Feed the Hungry, a local organization offering a family-style sit down dinner to Calgary’s impoverished.
January marked Homes by Avi’s 11th year participating in the event. In a joint sponsorship with McLeod Law, we were able to provide 110 volunteers, which included staff members, trades and suppliers, and family and friends. Our combined $5,000 sponsorship provided more than 500 meals to the individuals who attended the dinner—something we are truly proud of.
In addition to our volunteer efforts, the Stampede Rotary Dream home plays an important role in the initiative. Throughout the year, each Rotary club takes a turn to sponsor a dinner for Feed the Hungry, and arranges volunteers to donate their time to the charity.

A huge thank you to everyone who was involved in making this event a success.
This is just one of the ways Homes by Avi is dedicated to giving back.
