Everyone who works at West Wind has formed a close relationship with wood.  Most are passionate and take advantage of any opportunity to use and/or work with it.  Our Flooring Manger, Joel is no different.  In fact he set the bar for everyone else.  He’s been with us since 1998; still in high school at the time and highly recommended by his Wood Work Teacher.  He has spent his entire post-secondary career working towards improving and upgrading his living environment; a few times over.

Here are some pictures of the porch he installed on his current home renovation.  Great job!  What’s next?

Step Up and support Global Change!

December 5, 2011 West Wind CompanyOther

The crew at West Wind had another great giving opportunity by Mrs. Clarke’s Grade 7 Class.

It is the the 2nd year we have donated to this cause brought on by the class at Dunsmuir Middle School. The fund raising campaign is to raise money for Gifts of Hope through Plan Canada.  The students have been reading, writing, connecting, and researching issues in order to ignite some global change!  They have set goals to purchase pigs, goats, mosquito nets, medicine, school supplies etc in developing countries.

The class has set up a Giving Page through Canadahelps.org so the students can follow along with their progress. In past years they have raised anywhere from $1500 to$3000.

If you’d like to Step Up and support our campaign you can CLICK HERE.

Merry Christmas to the World!
