Community

We are always looking for ways to care for our community and our employees are passionate about supporting various charities and associations. Here are just a few of our recent activities:

RAPS - Regional Animal protection Society

At GLBC, we’re passionate about supporting causes that matter. That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with RAPS (Regional Animal Protection Society), a compassionate no-kill organization dedicated to providing a safe haven for feral, abandoned, and surrendered cats and dogs.
Led by our own GLBC employees, we recently rallied together to raise funds for this incredible charity. And here’s the best part: GLBC is doubling down on our commitment by matching every contribution made. Together, we’re making a tangible difference in the lives of these vulnerable animals. Join us in supporting RAPS and be a part of the movement to create a brighter future for animals in need. Together, we can make a paw-sitive impact!  www.rapsbc.com

50/50 BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund Raffle

We continued our support for the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund this holiday season by sponsoring the Burn Fund’s 50/50 raffle. All proceeds go to the fund which supports burn survivor programs like Burn Camp for kids, virtual mental health support, and the Home Away accommodation program which offers families traveling to Vancouver for burn and trauma treatment a home away from home.

BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund – Bright Nights VIP Night at Stanley Park

GLBC is proud to have partnered with the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund at the Stanley Park Bright Nights VIP Event for BC Burn Fund Families. Our team handed out digitally printed corrugated fire trucks that were filled with goodies for the Burn Fund Families and helped spread some holiday cheer!  

Canuck Place – Children’s Hospice

Ideon Packaging has supported Canuck Place for 9 years with a yearly toy drive for the foundation.  Great Little Box Company/ Ideon Packaging (GLBC)  are proud to continue the tradition this year, together as a team. A group of volunteers visited a local toy shop and purchased gifts for the families at Canuck Place. Santa delivered the gifts around the Valley and Lower Mainland to the families in time for the Holiday Season.

As one of the biggest health issues facing men, GLBC is taking part in Movember and fundraising for prostate and testicular cancer. Our employees are amazing and not only baked and donated for the cause but a huge shout out to the fellows growing their awesome Movember staches!

One Night Outside

On Nov 18 our team will be sleeping outside to help fight and prevent youth homelessness. They are giving up One Night so that these youth can have a lifetime. GLBC is generously matching the donations our participants raise for this event.

Dress for the Cause

Our Richmond Branch was pretty in pink today as we participated in a Dress for the Cause Bake Sale to raise money for the Breast Cancer Society. Thank you to all our staff for your fantastic baking and giving to this important cause.

Award of Excellence Program

GLBC has so many amazing employees we created a monthly program where peers nominate each other to acknowledge and celebrate those staff who go above and beyond the call of duty. The best part is 3 monthly winners pick a charity close to their hearts for GLBC to. Since all of these charities are an important part of our community, we wanted to give a shout out to this year’s recipients:
