Rob Tournour Masonry is a long-term supporter of HeroWork. HeroWork helps charity organizations in Victoria, BC carry out renovations to their buildings. This renovation, called Radical Renovation, take a fraction of the time and cost. Here is more on the great work done by these heroes.
The charitable sector in Victoria, BC has a disparity between demand and resources. Due to this disparity, the infrastructure of the charities takes a back seat. Most charities do not have the expertise or the funds to redevelop their buildings. HeroWork steps in to help charities bridge this gap. How does it do it?
HeroWork, itself a charity, partners with many businesses like Rob Tournour Masonry Ltd. and puts together community events to help other charities carry out renovations. To carry out successful Radical Renovations, HeroWork believes there are 4 ingredients –
1) Change – a visible and radical change over a short time
2) Coolness – a memorable experience for all participants in the project
3) Connection – give participants a sense of feeling connected with those around them
4) Cohesion – a thorough organization of the project so that all participants are clear on their roles
The work done by HeroWork has benefits of its own. It provides the recipient with a sustainable structure that meets current building codes. Second, a refurbished construction helps the charity deliver its services. There is a sense of pride and engagement amongst all the clients, staff and volunteers who help out.
Starting with a minimal budget of only $ 380, the first renovation project that HeroWork completed was worth $ 25,000. Since then, HeroWork has completed over $ 2.5 M worth of charity rebuilds in Victoria. Projects include the Rainbow Kitchen Project, which Rob Tournour Masonry partnered.
Rob Tournour Masonry Ltd. is proud to take a leading role in the various projects of HeroWork, and to support the community.
