Red Door strives to go beyond financial contributions to charities by actively leading volunteer initiatives.
At Red Door we believe strongly that private industry should play a leading role in delivering service at the local community level. While we design and build landscapes for residential and commercial property owners we also see an opportunity to use our unique resources to lead community and social based initiatives. We strive to go beyond financial contributions to charities by actively leading initiatives with our tools, equipment and boots on the ground.
Sandy Merriman House
Early in 2016 Red Door began working with Victoria Cool-Aid Society to perform a comprehensive design and build of the front gardens at Sandy Merriman House, a women’s emergency shelter located in downtown Victoria.
Throughout the design process we engaged with the clients and staff to produce a design that effectively responded to their unique needs. In March of 2017, in partnership with Heritage Masonry, Red Door will break ground and bring the design to life.
We have challenged our clients, suppliers and local business’ to get on board and we are very pleased to have generated all the support the project needs to be successful. We encourage you to consider supporting the project by donating directly to Cool Aid Society.
Tax deductible contributions can be made directly to Victoria Cool Aid Society online at www.coolaid.org or by calling 250.383.1977 and referencing the Sandy Merrimen volunteer landscape project.
In October of 2016 Red Door assisted HeroWork with a flagstone installation at the Victoria Rainbow Kitchen in Esquimalt.
HeroWork is a progressive and innovative Victoria based charity that renovates other charities spaces through spectacular community style events called ‘Radical Renovations.’ Because of our shared belief in leading volunteer projects with boots on the ground, we have pledged to continue working closely with HeroWork on future projects.
Frank Hobbes Elementary School
In 2016 Red Door volunteered at Frank Hobbes Elementary School in Victoria to lead a workshop on soil science. We returned to erect deer fencing around the school veggie garden and have committed to regular educational and project initiatives for the kids and staff at Frank Hobbes.
