IT TAKES A COMMUNITY TO BUILD A COMMUNITY
For the past 27 years, Trico has had the honour of creating homes for Calgarians. We appreciate the support we have received from our community, and from the 10,000+ families that has chosen Trico to build their family home.
Our 10,000 Homes Giving Back Campaign is our way of thanking the community that has supported us, and to celebrate Trico’s 10,000-home milestone.
From June 15 to July 15, 2019, Trico Homes will be donating $1,000 for every home sold to the following five local charities with a goal of donating $50,000 over a 30-day period.
Each donation will be made in the purchaser’s name(s).*
AARCS is a grassroots animal welfare organization based in Calgary with a foundation of compassion and kindness, embodied by its hard-working staff, volunteers, foster homes and supporters. Every day AARCS receive calls about animals in need of help – from broken bones, gunshot wounds, embedded porcupine quills, and mange to deadly diseases such as parvovirus. AARCS strives to ensure that these animals receive the medical care they need, along with a chance to recover in a loving foster home. Our goal is to help homeless animals in our community and enacting societal change so that someday we may all witness a Compassionate World for All Animals.

WINS is a local Calgary charity founded in 1992 to provide basic needs to financially disadvantaged women and their families. Since then, WINS has grown from one thrift store to five; one Family Resource Centre to four; significantly increased our community partnerships, as well as opening a Central Distribution Centre to efficiently manage the flow of goods from Calgarians. WINS is a true social enterprise as revenues from our stores fund a significant portion of the costs of our two community programs: the Free Goods Referral Program and Family Resource Centers. With your help, WINS can ensure that no woman who has made the decision to make a better life for herself and her family has to choose between putting food on the table and having a bed for her children.
