Kent Homes holds a Community Caring Week in support of local charities!


During September 7 to September 14, the team at Kent Homes came together to hold a "Community Caring Week", which resulted in donating various items to local charities. 

This was the first year Kent Homes put this together, and the outcome was phenomenal. Collecting $1,299.20, 191 lbs. of food, school supplies and more, the team was able to put many smiles on faces at the local food bank, Vestaire St Jean Baptiste and the local school Ecole Dr-Marguerite-Michaud (EDMM) in Bouctouche, NB.

"We are proud of the entire team for pulling together and helping right here in our community!" says Jessie-Lee Lomax, Marketing Coordinator for Kent homes. 

Here’s a look at their week of events:

September 7th - A bottle drive with team members donations, and the bottles from the Kent Homes office recycling bins, which gathered a total donation of $118.00.
