Proudly Canadian Made furniture program makes The Brick
one of the organization's top supporters
EDMONTON, Oct. 25, 2017 /CNW/ - Wounded Warriors is proud to announce The Brick was its top corporate sponsors in 2016, raising and donating $200,000 to the national organization.
"As a Canadian company, The Brick is proud to stand beside the men and women that serve our country – whether they're active-duty members of the Canadian Armed Forces or valued veterans", said Dave Freeman, President of The Brick. "We're honoured to support Wounded Warriors Canada with $200,000 as they continue the important work of helping veterans transition to civilian life."
Donations were raised over the course of 2016. During The Brick's Proudly Canadian Made Furniture promotions, which were held 4 times in 2016, a portion of each purchase of furniture made by Canadian manufacturers was donated to Wounded Warriors Canada.
On top of the Proudly Canadian Made Furniture promotion, The Brick also donated funds, making the company one of the organization's top corporate sponsors for 2016.
Today we celebrate the Brick, a Canadian company whose ongoing vision and leadership leverages its position as a leader in the sale of Canadian made furniture into an ongoing commitment to supporting those Veterans, First Responders and their families who are injured as a result of their service to Canada. Since their first contribution, the Brick's faith in the mission of Wounded Warriors Canada amounts to approximately ¾ of a million dollars enabling us to grow and expand programing across Canada. These programs continue to change and save lives and the Bricks significant partnership reminds us that as a nation we are in this together," Phil Ralph, National Program Director, Wounded Warriors Canada
The Brick and Wounded Warriors Canada began their partnership in 2014.
