If nothing else, the past several months have laid bare our need for unity during times of uncertainty. At Authentica, the core idea of community has always been ingrained in our culture and values as a company. We value the social groups we’ve built internally, the alliances we’ve become a part of in the course of our business, and the global partnerships to which we all belong. This has always inspired us to look beyond our bottom line to how we can use our business as a force for good.
We’re working hard to live by that intention as a certified B Corp. When we discovered this community of companies, we knew right away that joining would help strengthen our commitment to being a positive force wherever we could. A year on and facing challenging times, we’re so grateful to be part of this like-minded group of companies. Inspired by our fellow B Corp members, we’re working more closely than ever with our partners to provide support to those in need.
United with Those in Need
The challenges of the past several months have had the greatest impact on the most vulnerable members of our communities. By strengthening our existing relationships with several organizations and forging new ones, we stand united more than ever with those in need. For some time now, Authentica has partnered with Backpack Buddies, the Richmond School District, and I Can for Kids to feed children in British Columbia and Alberta. We’ve doubled down on these relationships, donating more food to help children receive enough nourishment. We’ve also forged a new relationship with Food Banks Canada, working with them to fill hampers that will feed many Canadian families over the coming months.
We are committed to supporting our communities by feeding those in need. Guided by our company values, we’ll continue to lean into that commitment through times of uncertainty now and in the future. We hope that you’ll join us in supporting your own community by donating your time or money to those in need. We’re grateful to be on this journey with you and the B Corp community, recognizing that there’s strength in numbers.
