Penticton Home Hardware Building Center is a proud community sponsor. We have made a longstanding commitment to share our time and resources to making a lasting positive impact in the lives of youth, seniors and the less fortunate members of our community. We’ve partnered with various local organizations that work tirelessly on behalf of our community and residents.
Our sponsorship of the Apex Snow School, and the annual Home Hardware Freak’n Farmer obstacle race, which provides support to the Youth Outdoor Recreation Society, provide opportunity for youth to participate in outdoor recreational activities. In addition, we’ve committed volunteers and donations to events that support the Okanagan Similkameen Neurological Society Child and Youth Development Center (OSNS), sponsored ongoing food for two children in our community through the Starfish Pack program, and partnered with the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen in support of the Yes Project funding the development of the Penticton Youth Center and the many resources that facility will provide to support youth in our community.
We’ve also committed to supporting the South Okanagan Women in Need Society (SOWINS) through fundraising events and donations in order to support women and children coming from abusive circumstances by donating to the organization and providing basic necessities such as food and clothing to the single parent families in need during the holiday season.
Another organization that we’ve contributed to through donations and support of fundraising events is the South Okanagan Medical Foundation, primarily to the new hospital tower campaign providing medical equipment for the expansion.
Additionally we provide space for various local youth athletic groups and other groups that align with our areas of focus above to fundraise on site.
We are a proud supporter of Penticton’s favorite hockey team, the Penticton Vees, and have partnered with them on game sponsorships and events throughout the year in addition to awarding a $1000 bursary attached to an academic award each year to a team member that is moving on to advance their education.
