Give Joy This Holiday Season

Another year is coming to a close and during this tempestuous time in the world, the holiday season is a time where we recognize the privilege that we have in being able to spend time with and hold close our family, friends and community. We recognize the challenges and obstacles that people are facing and what better way to spread holiday cheer than by helping out those in need? At Genesis, giving back to our community has always been important but this year, more than ever, we want to show support for the people who need it most within our communities.

Did you know 70% of food is donated during the holiday months? This winter, thousands of Albertans will rely on charitable donations and the support of organizations like the Calgary and Airdrie Foodbanks, The Veterans Foodbank, the Women In Need Society and the Calgary & District Foster Parents Association, to prosper. It’s the time to come together as a strong community and donate to organizations that are supporting Albertans in times of need.

That’s why from now until December 31st, we will be making a $1,000 donation for every townhome and a $2,500 donation for every single-family home sold.

The charities that you can choose to donate to have been strong leaders in the community and have made a difference to Albertans. The five charities are all equally amazing and will help support Albertans in need this season. Genesis Builder Group will make a donation in your name to a charity of your choice with every home purchased between November 1st and December 31st, 2023.

The Airdrie Food Bank

The Airdrie Food Bank is able to provide vital services and programs to the community because of the support from their community and partners. Last year, the Airdrie Food Bank fed 44,676 people in our community, 44% of those being children.

The Calgary Food Bank

The CFB’s vision is a hunger-free community. They are the city’s main charitable food hub and the first line of support for anyone facing a food emergency.

The Veterans Association Food Bank

Provides assistance to those who were willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms and rights. Since opening in 2018, they’ve been able to provide food and support to over 500 Veterans and Veterans’ families.

Women in Need Society (WINS)

WINS is a Calgary-based shopping alternative investing in the social well-being of the community. Operating five destination thrift stores and five Family Resource Centres, they help vulnerable women and their families live better lives.

Calgary & District Foster Parents Association (CFPA)

As a non-profit association, they are a membership of Foster and Kinship Parents, dedicated to supporting each other and advocating for the betterment of Children in Care. Not only do they provide support to Foster and Kinship families, but offer a number of activities for these children and their Foster families, among other initiatives.
