Let’s Eat! Strategic Group’s annual campaign against hunger

THANK YOU! Together, we made a difference by collecting food donations for those in need of our help.  Our 7th annual Let’s Eat! campaign against hunger proved positive and spirited during the week-long campaign from June 18-24. Over 4,000 lbs of food was collected for the Calgary Food Bank and Edmonton’s Food Bank! To top it off, Strategic Group will be making a $5,000 cash donation.

A special thanks goes to our Building Operations, Strategic Maintenance, Property Management Teams, community partners, the food bank staff for their preparation in advance of the food drive and throughout the campaign, as well as building Tenants and Team Members for all their energy, enthusiasm and contributions.

Thank you once again for making an impact. Because of you, there are less hungry people in our communities.

We are already looking forward to Let’s Eat! 2019 and we hope you are too.

A Thank You From Terra

We are thrilled to announce that our June Block Party Blowout was a success and wanted to say a special thank you to the wonderful Terra residents, general public and Airdrie City Councillor Tina Petrow for being a part of the event.

Strategic Group wanted to give back to the people who make the residence and the community inclusively, such a great place to live. Randy Ferguson, COO of Strategic Group stated, “We are delighted at the response from the community for our promotion focussing on the rental of our newly constructed Townhomes.  The families that have chosen Terra as their new rental home have an opportunity to benefit well beyond the existing overwhelming strengths of this Residence, and we feel gratified by that.”

Three Terra residents’ names were drawn and the lucky winners of the one year of free rent are: Melissa and David, Danielle, and Darlene! Congratulations and we hope that this prize helps to make the next year at Terra extra special!

We hope everyone had a great afternoon at Terra’s Block Party and appreciate you joining us. Thank you, Airdrie, for being such a wonderful city and we look forward to many more years of championing better lives for this welcoming community.

Let’s Eat! campaign against hunger running June 18 – 24, 2018

Strategic Group is proud to be partnering with the Calgary Food Bank for the 7th annual Let’s Eat! campaign against hunger, running June 18-24.
