Campbell & Haliburton is a locally owned Regina insurance company, and we are proud to be present in the same city that we started in more than 50 years ago!! Being part of the Regina community is one of the most important values of our company. In our latest blog post, we share our special relationship with the North Central Family Centre.
Supporting Regina’s North Central Family Centre
The North Central Family Centre (NCFC) in Regina provides programs, activities and services in a supportive and safe environment to children, families, and seniors; to build self-esteem and self-confidence and enhance their quality of life. Today more young men and women than ever before need help as they move from adolescence to adulthood and NCFC offers a range of programs and supports to help them become productive members of our society.
In October 2021 we shared the news that our president John Grant was the recipient of the Association of Fundraising Professionals – South Saskatchewan Chapter, 2021 Outstanding Community Partner Award! Sandy Wankel, Founder, North Central Family Centre supported his nomination and shared why she thought John was a deserving recipient.
“To state that John Grant has made a difference to North Central Family Centre would be a huge understatement. John Grant’s personal commitment and dedication to our youth and families, and to the community is beyond measure. John’s long-term commitment and investment in NCFC will have lasting impact for generations to come, and is making a tremendous difference in improving the quality of life for many residents in Regina’s North Central. North Central Family Centre is a registered non-profit charitable organization offering wrap-around programs and services in a supportive environment to children, youth families and Elders.”
The commitment to support the North Central Family Centre (NCFC) is an ongoing one, and it is important to our staff. In the picture above Daryl Arendt (Campbell & Haliburton Insurance, Office Manager)is presenting a cheque of the money he raised from his participation in the 2021 Queen City Marathon. Campbell & Haliburton matched the money raised.
The NCFC’s commercial kitchen had been shut down by the city inspectors in 2017. Really limiting the use of the facility for the center. Historically they utilized it for job training to help people to obtain jobs in the Restaurant and Kitchen Industries, help people get their food safety certifications, also to make food for the after school programs and for people in need in the community. NCFC asked if we could help navigate through the approval process with the city to get the necessary permits to operate the kitchen again. We called on Jim Baiton from our very own Canadiana Foods / Tumblers Pizza and his long-term kitchen mechanical expert, Galen at 101285680 Sask Ltd HVAC-Refrig, Plumbing, Make-up air, Exhaust and more. Galen repaired all the deficiencies which totaled $16,730 and donated many hours of his time with no charge. Galen also kindly reduced the invoice by $1,000 as his contribution to the NCFC. Campbell & Haliburton paid the remaining $15,730 and NCFC now has a Kitchen fully up to code and approved by the City of Regina.
In 2022, John Grant, who is on the NCFC Advisory committee, is also responsible for putting together a fundraiser to purchase 2 new passenger vans for NCFC.
