West Canadian Participates in the #3Things4Neighbours Community Challenge



09.09.2020

A community challenge started in March by a Calgary business owner has gone viral in the local community, and West Canadian is the latest to participate.


The #3Things4Neighbours social media challenge is designed to encourage Calgarians to carry out acts of kindness amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenge began in March when a Calgary business owner created the campaign as a way to give back to the community.

Nearly half a year later, what started as a good deed between neighbours has caught on in Calgary's business community, as organizations like ATCO, Enmax,CANA and many others take to video to share three things they are doing to support our local community.

Many of the organizations who have completed the challenge have chosen to nominate others to do the same. Thank you to Luke Simpson, President & CEO at CANA for nominating our organization to rise to the challenge.

"We have learned that you don't have to be a big company with deep pockets to make a difference. Small acts of kindness and generosity can go a long way and make a positive impact on people around you." — Karen Brookman, President & CEO

Watch our video below to see how we are supporting our community this year, and we invite you to join in!

We would like to nominate Brent Hesje, CEO of Fountain Tire, Katherine Emberly, President of Business, Brand & Communications at Shaw Business, and Doug Cinnamon, Architect and Studio Managing Principal at DIALOG to complete the challenge.
