Kelowna company gives HOPE to the community

The 17-person staff at Creative Roots Landscaping each donates one hour of their time every week

What a great way to wrap up a busy July for the staff at Creative Roots in Kelowna.

The staff celebrated month’s end by donating $3,000 to HOPE Okanagan.

“We are growing so fast this year and just can’t keep up with some of the things we need,” explained Angie Lohr, president and co-founder of HOPE Okanagan, a group that provides night-time outreach to homeless and/or sexually exploited women in Kelowna’s downtown core.

HOPE also offers a safe house/recovery house to women.

The 17-person staff at Creative Roots Landscaping each donates one hour of their time every week to contribute to the company’s Community Give Back fund.

They then choose a charity to benefit from a donation.

Employee Sam Ulasy recommended HOPE Okanagan for this month’s recipient because her mom volunteers there.

To-date, Creative Roots has donated over $118,000 in cash and in-kind work to organizations in Kelowna.
