“Every day, we set out to build homes that people love and feel safe in. So, when you see that kind of comfort and security taken from so many people, it’s staggering,” Kendall says. “But what’s even more astounding is the generosity and willingness of so many people to help in any way they can, and I’m proud that Homes by Avi is a part of that.” Jayman Group of Companies donated $50,000 to the Red Cross and has challenged other home builders and developers to meet or beat this contribution. “We also supported Tao Events ﬁnancially to feed the volunteers working around the clock,” says Graham Boyce, Jayman president. “We have worked with Perry McGeough of Tao Events for many years. They are well known for their food trucks at events in and around the city.”
Boyce says they chose to do business with McGeough and his team because of their mission, which is to help those less fortunate in Calgary. “We accomplish that by delivering one meal to a homeless person for every three people we feed for you,” according to Tao Events. “In the ﬁrst days following the flood, we enlisted Perry and his team to provide food to rescue workers (police, ﬁreﬁghters and the Canadian Army) in downtown Calgary,” Boyce says. “We also recognized that Calgarians, and our City, take great pride in hosting the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth and wanted to ensure that the show would go on, ‘come hell or high water’!” So Jayman sought permission of the Calgary Stampede to have Tao provide 24-hour a day food service to the clean-up and restoration workers on the Stampede grounds over the Canada Day long weekend. “Once we received approval, we called on ‘Team Jayman’ to work alongside Perry’s team to feed ‘everyday Heroes’,” Boyce says. Over 15 Jayman team members, from both Calgary and Edmonton, worked around the clock to serve more than 2,000 people a day for ﬁve days. “We have amazing people at Jayman that want to help their fellow neighbour and they did just that,” Boyce says. of course dozens of other ChBa – Calgary region members have lent a helping hand and many have made signiﬁcant contributions over the last few weeks. for a complete list of these incredible donations, visit chbacalgary.com.
