In support of our Sleep Out: Executive Edition Joseph Richard Group Employees & Executives raised $115,309.09 for Covenant House Vancouver!

With approximately 950 people employed at 20 JRG public houses, restaurants, and liquor retail outlets in British Columbia and Alberta, close to 100 employees spend a night sleeping on the street at one of three JRG locations (Townhall Maple Ridge, Oak & Thorne in Langley, and S+L Kitchen & Bar South Surrey). Three days later on November 16, JRG co-founders Ryan Moreno and Andre Bourque were joined by Chef Stowe to also take part in the downtown Vancouver Sleep Out: Executive Edition at Covenant House Vancouver.

At the employee sleep out all the JRG participants, received $10 Tim Hortons gift cards in the morning to get a hot coffee and breakfast after they had slept out. The sleepers choose to re-donate those Tim Horton’s gift cards for our young people and close to 200 gift cards were received.

A huge thank you to the Joseph Richards Group, their dedicated employees and all their supporters for giving back in such a huge way for our youth!
