HAVAN Honors and Giving Back at Home

From becoming HAVAN Legends to Coats for Kids and a KinVillage Fundraiser - Kemp has been busy over the last few months giving in big and bigger ways in Delta and beyond.

Legends of Housing HAVAN 15-year Recognition

Last month the Homebuilders Association Vancouver  (HAVAN) recognized all those who have been members for 15 years - honoring our longstanding committment to building excellence. Burnaby’s Mayor, Mike Hurley,  shared a very inspiring vision of plans for his community infrastructure projects coming in the next few years. Mayors and councillors from all municipalities joined us to meet with builders and suppliers across the lower mainland. View Event Details Here.

HAVAN Coats for Kids wraps up warmth for all

We are grateful for our community and friends at Sarah Gallop Design, which saw contributions of over 120 clothing items and several bags of new toys in support of the Homebuilders Association (HAVAN) Coats for Kids program.

The 27th annual Coats for Kids campaign kicked off this year on November 7 in support of the Lower Mainland and Surrey Christmas Bureaus - two groups whose many initiatives help to provide a warmer winter and brighter holiday season for families in need. The Coats for Kids donation campaign ran until December 8, with HAVAN member companies providing locations for members of the community to drop off new and gently used coats, scarves, gloves, blankets, and new unwrapped toys and gifts for children of all ages.

Along with this, the HAVAN's Custom Homebuilder & Renovator Council (attended by Steve and David) raised $6050 for Coats for Kids at their December meeting.

KinVillage Cheers for Fears Fundraiser

In late October, David and the organizing committee for Cheers for Fears raised over $50,000 for the Kinsmen Seniors Centre in Tsawwassen.

This red carpet Halloween bash donated 100 per cent of all proceeds to the redevelopment and expansion of KinVillage housing and care facilities. The South Delta Community Impact Committee's (SDCIC) hard work culminated in a sold out Halloween costume party held at the centre this fall.
