We Believe in Supporting Our Community
As a company thornley has been very consistent in supporting a variety of community based initiatives.
thornley has always believed in being an active and supportive part of our community. Over the years we have played an integral role in many community-based projects -- sometimes pro-bono, sometimes at a reduced rate with add-ons thrown into the mix, and always with a fair bit of volunteer time included for good measure. A partial list would include: DiversCITY community resources, Youth Arts Council, Literacy for Life, Coalition for Music Education, The Centre for Child Development, Stand up for the Arts campaign, The Surrey Foundation, the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Society and a host of others.
Our giving back to the community started in the 1990s where our first volunteer project was creating some designs for A Loving Spoonful, an organization that supplies nutritious meals to people living with aids. The next year our charity of choice was the SPCA. Eventually, we landed at the doorstep of the Surrey Food Bank, where we really found a home and a sense of belonging. We continue to help out the food bank with a variety of graphic, marketing and video services. We are honoured to have been given the opportunity to support this worthwhile Surrey-based organization.
We have also actively supported Pitch-In Canada since our company's inception and continue to do so. Now in it's 40th year, Pitch-In Canada could arguably be described as the progenitor of the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle movement in Canada.
Recently, our campaign “100 Days to Give” for Surrey memorial Hospital Foundation was recognized by the Canadian Public Relations Society in the Canadian Marketing Campaign of the Year category (bronze). Read about it at the Surrey Now.
