At Bigelow Flooring, community involvement is a vital part of our company culture. From the day we established roots in Guelph back in 2004, we’ve been working with local community organizations to help give back in any way we can.
We feel fortunate to be a part of the Guelph community. We live and work in a great town, and we feel very privileged. We get so much from our customers and from the community, and we are proud to be able to give something back to people less fortunate than us.
Our company motto is “People taking care of people.” It’s something that we strongly believe, and helping people in the community is an extension of that. Through sponsorships and other initiatives, whether it’s cancer research or helping get families into homes, we’re proud to be involved in these local charities.
Canadian Cancer Society
No matter who you are or how fortunate you’ve been in life, everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer – and the team at Bigelow is no exception. People all around us are affected, from friends and family to community members and beyond. Through participation in events like Relay for Life, benefitting the Canadian Cancer Society, we hope to help find a cure and provide support for everyone in our community who is touched by this disease.
Community of Hearts
Community of Hearts is a lifelong learning centre focussed on empowering adults with intellectual challenges. They offer a wide range of social programs, educational opportunities, volunteer opportunities and other support for people and their families. Our co-owner, Garth Bigelow, sits on the Board of Directors for this organization.
Habitat for Humanity
Bigelow is in the flooring installation business, so supporting Habitat for Humanity seemed like a natural choice. This organization helps families afford housing, and Bigelow is proud to contribute to the cause donating flooring materials to Habitat’s Guelph location.
Each one of our team members is involved in our community projects in one way or another. Whether it’s showing up and participating in events or manning our promotional tent at sponsored events and golf tournaments, we’re all committed to maintaining the giving and community-centred spirit that Guelph is known for.
