Social Initiatives

With the arrival of each New Year, FGP’s staff-run social committee is tasked with selecting a local charity.  These local charities are typically smaller in nature and do not have major fundraising campaigns from which to generate donations.

Throughout the year, FGP employees generously raise funds through various fundraising initiatives.

Some recent examples of local charities that have benefitted from these fundraising efforts:

  • Blessings in a Backpack
  • East End Children’s Centre
  • TRAILS Youth Initiatives

FGP is a proud supporter of the following charitable initiatives and organizations:
