Vince’s Market firmly believes that in order for businesses to be strong, communities must be strong. In reciprocating this, it is up to businesses to give back to the communities they exist in.
This being our belief at Vince’s Market, we commit an annual budget of $45,000 to be put back into the community. This comes by way of products, gift cards, or in some special cases monetary donations.
As we come into the holiday season, we wanted to shed some light on Vince’s community engagements this year, and inspire you to help make a difference in your community.
Cedar Centre Open House on Monday, November 27th
The Newmarket-based centre serves more than 200 York Region survivors of trauma, including children who have suffered sexual or physical abuse. After 20 years of being at their current location, they got a “redefine through redesign” facelift. Vince’s Proudly sponsored the $10,000 update and offered its supervisor team as volunteers for the 4 days of the project.
We also sent our supervisor team as volunteers to help with the renovations.
Join us at the Cedar Centre open house on Monday, November 27th to unveil their new look!
