CIPH Encourages Creativity in Member Fundraising by Offering CIPH Building Hope Trophy
The 4th Annual CIPH Habitat for Humanity Week
September 18, 2010
September 12th to 18th, 2010, marked the 4th Annual Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) Habitat for Humanity Week, a week used by CIPH’s member companies to fundraise for Habitat for Humanity Canada (HFHC). Following each CIPH Habitat for Humanity Week, CIPH awards their Building Hope Trophy to the member or members that plan and execute the most creative fundraising initiative.
CIPH members Sean Giberson (Taco Canada Ltd.), Jeff House (Jess-Don Dunford Limited) and Simon Blake (Plumbing & HVAC) answered CIPH’s call for creative fundraisers this year by organizing the first ever CIPH Ride for Habitat, a 166 km motorcycle ride that saw participants travel from Vaughn, Ont., to Newmarket by way of Brampton and Orangeville.
"We had a great ride. The weather was fantastic, we had more than 30 riders, and we managed to raise more than $5,000 for Habitat for Humanity Canada. It was a great way to spend a Sunday,” said Sean Giberson, Taco Canada Ltd.
To date, the 4th CIPH Habitat for Humanity Week has raised over $35,000 for HFHC’s home building activities. Since CIPH began their partnership with HFHC in 1994, they have contributed over $6.3 million in cash and product donations.
"CIPH members should be very proud of their association’s amazing contributions to Habitat for Humanity Canada – together our association is truly making a difference for many Canadian families in need of safe, decent and affordable housing” – Charity Committee Chairman, John Hammill (Moen).
