Community Responsibility - What it Means
January 17, 2017 | By Barry English
Our community is more than just a place to hang our hat. Community is creating a balance of work and play that ensures a strong opportunity for growth for all of those who live there. At TDG Marketing we believe that we have a responsibility to help make our community a better place for all of us.
Our approach to community involvement has caused us to offer our talents on a pro-bono basis for a number of causes over our sixteen year history. From creating marketing tools to “Clean the Lake” to developing and growing the “Lifetime Achievement Awards” identity in the community, TDG has gravitated towards projects that we believe make a strong impact and help make Brantford a better place. In fact, last year TDG Marketing donated over $40K in free marketing services to organizations and causes that have touched our hearts.
Over the years the causes that we have rallied behind include: Ronald MacDonald House, The United Way, Lansdowne Children’s Centre, Rotary Club and more. One of the projects that we are most proud of is our Involvement, under Barry’s leadership of The Gretzky Family Monument. This gift is a lasting legacy to the Gretzky family that is having a positive impact on tourism within Brantford.
Why do we do it? The answer is simple – this is our home. This is where many of our employees live. Most importantly because it is the right thing to do. Our community is only as strong as we all make it. We encourage each of you to get involved – in whatever way works for you to make your community strong.
