Agrium Inc. is a global leader in agricultural products, services, and solutions and was named one of Canada’s Top Employers for 2017. Their goal is to help growers increase their crop production sustainably and work collaboratively to grow high quality food for our rapidly growing population. With their expertise and strong community mindedness, Agrium Inc. helped Between Friends break ground on a Horticultural Therapy Garden at Between Friends Camp Bonaventure in 2015. Horticultural Therapy uses horticulture, plants and nature as a modality of therapy designed to improve the social, cognitive, physical, emotional, creative and spiritual health and well-being of individuals or groups. The garden has had such a positive impact on our campers and with Agrium’s continued support we have been able to expand on the garden each year! We wish to thank Agrium Inc. for their support of our garden and giving our participants the opportunity to learn about plants and vegetation while growing their skills and experiencing the beauty of nature!
The CIBC Children’s Foundation was founded in order to make a difference in the lives of children. By working with their clients, employees and children’s organizations, they aim to improve the quality of life for children in the communities they serve and prepare Canadian children for future success. The CIBC Children’s Foundation has been a longtime supporter of Between Friend, first through our Skate-a-Kid to Camp event, and now through our Friends in Motion Bowl-a-Thon! These family favourite events have helped us ensure that every child who would like to attend our summer programming has a chance to do so, regardless of financial hardship. Our friends from CIBC Children’s Foundation helped us bowl our way to another successful event that raised over $70,000! We wish to thank the CIBC Children’s Foundation for their sponsorship and support of our 3rd Annual Friends in Motion Bowl-a-Thon this year and for bowling alongside our participants in friendship!
