Discovery House (Calgary)

Providing essential support and safe housing for women and children fleeing domestic violence, Discovery House offers a lifeline to those in need. By supporting Discovery House, we help create a safer, more nurturing environment for vulnerable families, empowering them to rebuild their lives with dignity and hope.

Ensuring a safe and secure blood supply is vital for the health of Canadians. Our support of Canadian Blood Services underscores our dedication to public health. By participating in blood drives and raising awareness, we contribute to saving lives and supporting medical treatments that depend on donated blood. This aligns with our commitment to reliability and excellence in manufacturing, ensuring that our products and our community efforts have a lasting, positive impact.

Southern Alberta Electronics Charity Organization (SAECO)

SAECO is close to our hearts, particularly through our involvement in their annual Charity Golf Tournament, which supports mental health initiatives at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Mental health is a critical issue, and our support helps provide essential services and programs to children and families in need. Just as we innovate in our industry to solve complex problems, we are committed to innovating in our community to support mental health and well-being.

Silvertips Lacrosse

Promoting sportsmanship and teamwork, Silvertips Lacrosse offers youth programs that foster physical fitness, discipline, and community engagement. Our sponsorship helps ensure that young athletes have the resources they need to thrive. This mirrors our emphasis on teamwork and continuous improvement within our company, where we strive to build a collaborative and supportive workplace.

Calgary Foundation

Enhancing the quality of life in Calgary, the Calgary Foundation supports a wide range of community projects and initiatives. Our contributions to the Foundation help drive positive change across the city we call home, addressing diverse needs and empowering local organizations. Just as we aim to enhance the quality of our products and services, we are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in our community.

Empowering women to achieve their full potential, Woman on Wings provides education, mentorship, and support services. Our partnership with this organization reflects our commitment to gender equality and the empowerment of women through sustainable, impactful programs. This mirrors our commitment to diversity and inclusion within our company, where we strive to create an environment where everyone can thrive.

Charity Events Participation

Volunteering at the Calgary Humane Society

Our team spent a morning at the Calgary Humane Society, helping to care for animals in need and supporting the organization’s mission to promote animal welfare. This hands-on experience not only contributed to the well-being of the animals but also strengthened our team’s bond through shared, meaningful activities. Just as we care for the details in our manufacturing process, we extend the same care and attention to our community efforts.

Serving Breakfast at the Calgary Drop-In Centre

We dedicated a morning to serving breakfast to the homeless at the Calgary Drop-In Centre, with our friends at Acera Insurance, offering not just food but also a sense of community and support to those in need. This initiative highlights our commitment to addressing homelessness and providing tangible assistance to vulnerable populations. Similarly, our approach to business is centered around providing real solutions and support, ensuring that we make a meaningful difference.

Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women in Calgary

Our team participated in this run to support women’s mental health programs and the Calgary Eating Disorder Program . By engaging in this event, we contribute to improving mental health services for women, advocating for a cause that aligns with our values of compassion and community support. Just as we strive for excellence and well-being in our work environment, we support initiatives that promote the well-being of the broader community.

Their willingness to get involved, step up, and make a difference is the cornerstone of our community engagement. Our team embodies the values of integrity, innovation, and collaboration, not just in their work at August Electronics, but in their contributions to our charity initiatives.

From volunteering at the Calgary Humane Society to serving breakfast at the Calgary Drop-In Centre, our employees consistently go above and beyond to support our community. Their participation in events like the Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women demonstrates their commitment to important causes, reflecting the same passion and dedication they bring to their roles at August Electronics.

We are incredibly proud of our team and grateful for their unwavering support. Their collective efforts amplify our impact, allowing us to contribute meaningfully to the community.
