Supporting Communities Across Canada
Greenrock IMPACT is devoted to creating strong, healthy, and environmentally sustainable communities while celebrating cultural diversity and promoting human rights across Canada through a variety of annual initiatives, volunteer programs, and donations. Greenrock IMPACT further supports the most vital real-time needs of our residents and community members.
Greenrock’s COVID-19 Relief Fund Exceeds $4 Million
The COVID-19 pandemic created unique and extreme challenges for our city and communities. In response to this crisis, Greenrock created a relief fund to address concerns surrounding food security, mental health, BIPOC communities, LGBTQ2S+ communities, senior care, shelters and outreach support, and women’s health.
Thanks to a generous new matching campaign by the Green Sanderson Family Foundation, the fund has now exceeded $4 Million in donations.
