Hollyburn Properties’ 4th annual participation in the Spring Hope Food Drive in Ontario has come to a close. It was a resounding success! All of our Toronto and Ottawa resident managers participated by canvassing door-to-door and collecting nonperishable food in our buildings. They even recruited a few residents to help!
"Every single day there are Ontarians struggling to make ends meet and who are forced to make the difficult choice between their most basic needs, like paying the rent or eating a meal," the report stated.
Thank you to all of our Hollyburn residents, staff members and partners who helped make this food drive a success. Eradicating hunger is dependent on the involvement and participation of many parts of the community, all working together towards one common goal. You can count on Hollyburn's support next year!
But wait that's not all! Our team in Ontario is on a corporate social responsibility roll! We also participated in the City of Toronto's "Community Clean Up Day" on Saturday, April 23rd 2016 - part of Live Green Toronto, the City's program that promotes environmental sustainability in our neighbourhoods.
Today's guest blog post is brought to you by Whitney, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and part of the Business Development Team at Spud!
Healthy food is in the building! We are so excited to partner with Hollyburn Properties to provide residents in Vancouver (Calgary, Ottawa and Toronto coming soon!) with a healthy, convenient, and affordable grocery shopping option. SPUD is a local company, our warehouse in East Van, and we focus on selling local products. Our mission is to change the way we think about grocery stores and the way we get our food.
Our business model hinges on our delivery system- deliver fresh, organic, and healthy food and goods to our customers’ doorsteps. We make shopping healthy as easy as possible. For the residents of Hollyburn Properties we deliver right to you. We offer a full grocery store of fresh produce, healthy snacks, cooking and baking ingredients. Anything that can be bought at a brick and mortar grocery store, you can order through us! If we don’t carry a product, your suggestions are taken very seriously (as long as they are legal and don’t contain any of our “banned ingredients”).
Because we deliver your groceries to you, you have more time in your day to exercise, spend valuable time with friends and family, or to cook with those around you! We don’t want you to waste your precious time in lines! Did you know the average Canadian wastes 5 years standing in lines over the course of their lives!? That is crazy.
Interested in what kind of products we sell? Check out this list of categories:
Produce (a variety of seasonal and staple fruits and vegetables)
Grocery (anything from oil & vinegar to nuts & seeds, and cereal, granola & oatmeal)
We also have Meal Kits pre-planned to make shopping even more seamless! Log in to our site and search for “kits” to find an assortment of logically grouped items, just begging you to throw together in a meal. For example, check out our Guacamole Kit, Angus Cheeseburger Kit, and our Tex Mex Night Kit.
We are so stoked to be servicing Hollyburn Properties, we are offering a special deal. For any HP resident, we are giving you $15 off your first FIVE orders above $50! In addition, if you are a first-time SPUD user, we are offering you $30 off $60, that’s 50%!
P.S. Please feel free to stop and talk to our delivery people if you happen to run into them! They love to answer questions, chat organics, or just to chat about the weather.
Designed by Francl Architecture, this industry-leading 144 suite rental building will add significant rental supply to a neighbourhood with a vacancy rate of just 0.2%.
This proposal will contribute much needed rental housing in North Vancouver, and offers 32 family-oriented rental suites.
The project also includes an improved streetscape and public realm with patio space for street-front businesses along Lonsdale Avenue and West 13th Street. Weather protection for pedestrians and the addition of new trees and pavement treatments will enhance the area. A new public mews will link the proposed building’s open space to City Hall and the Civic Plaza.
Hollyburn Properties has deep roots in North Vancouver and has been operating rental housing in the city for almost 40 years. This will be our third purpose-built rental building in Central Lonsdale.
Come meet the project team, view our proposal, fill out a comment form and share your feedback.
We hope you are as excited about this project as we are. We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on this new rental initiative and hope to see you at the Town Hall Meeting!
