The Green Apron Project
PrairieCoast equipment is dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live and work. Volunteerism plays an important role in our culture and through the Green Apron Project, we are able to provide a place for our community-minded employees to give back.
The Green Apron Project is the official charitable arm of PrairieCoast equipment. The Project focuses on the cities and towns that PrairieCoast calls home. Its primary objective is to fulfill our mission of feeding our communities.
One way the Green Apron Projects gives back is by partnering with Breakfast Club of Canada (BCC). BCC is a national organization which oversees breakfast programs in approved schools across Canada. With over 200 schools in Western Canada on BCC’s waitlist we feel there is an opportunity to make an immediate, positive impact on those who need it most – our children. We recently completed a donation to BCC of $240,000 and 2,400 volunteer hours. Our staff is still involved in going in to local schools each week to serve the children breakfast.
Other Community Initiatives
PrairieCoast equipment is proud to be a continued supporter of local community events, Agriculture organizations, and charities.
We are also an active part of our local 4-H community. We run the John Deere Gator lottery every other year with 4-H British Columbia. We donate 2 Gators for the lottery and the local clubs sell draw tickets and local events, fairs, and tradeshows. This lottery generates almost $40,000 in ticket sales for their organization.
