LACEY CHARITABLE AND COMMUNITY GIVING
Why is work important to us? Working hard enables us to give back in the communities we live in – here are some of the causes and organizations we have supported over the years and a few that are near and dear to our hearts.
Isthmus (Formerly Blessings in a Backpack)
Formerly Blessings in a Backpack, Isthmus has a goal of working toward breaking the cycle of poverty. No child should have to go to school hungry, but it happens every day all across Canada. We run a unique program that feeds elementary school children who may not have any or enough food on the weekends. It takes only $120 to feed a child for an entire school year, which can make all the difference in a child’s ability to succeed in school.
We are committed as a family and a company to support children in our community and to that end, Lesa runs Blessings in a Backpack at Dewdney, Deroche, Hatzic and Mission Central Elementary Schools as well as Fraserview supporting over 60 children a year since 2012 and hopefully for many more. It’s a family operation with the youngest Laceys getting in on packing the food every school week that Lesa drops off every Thursday.
Fraser Valley Humane Society
Our two dogs are definitely part of the family and we want to be part of the great work the Fraser Valley Humane Society does in our community.
Lesa bakes for the bake sales – Spring and Fall – for the FV Humane Society to raise funds for local programs benefiting cats in our area.
The Fraser Valley Humane Society was first formed in the Summer of 1999, when the Fraser Valley (BC, Canada) was put on flood alert.
With the cooperation of veterinary facilities and volunteers from the community, we were able to establish a telephone hot-line and database to register and coordinate foster homes for pets in need. This database was available to other areas as needed, and therefore a network of help was created.
The FVHS works to eliminate the endless suffering of strays and abandoned cats in our community. Our no kill centre provides a humane approach to animal welfare.
BC Children’s Hospital Foundation
Upper Fraser Valley Community for Kids Golf Tournament
Each year the Upper Fraser Valley Community for Kids Committee organizes a fun, non-competitive tournament to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital. Last year this tournament raised over $55,000 to support the most urgent needs of the hospital. Please visit our registrations and donations page when register for next year’s tournament!
We have sponsored a hole in the tournament for years now and really support this great organization and the tremendous work they do for kids in the community!
Golden Eagles Canoe Club
The Golden Eagle Canoe Clubs mandates and goals are to keep culture alive in all of our young ones, to help them to maintain physical fitness, social interaction with elders and community members. It promotes pride for our community and its members.
The Golden Eagles Canoe Club is a spirited club of war canoe racers with a great determination and desire. We have been a proud sponsor of the Golden Eagles Canoe Club over the last few years.

Sasquatch Inn Show & Shine
As a proud sponsor of the Sasquatch Inn Show & Shine over the last 6 years, we are proud to partner with and participate in this fun summer event showcasing some of the best Harrison Mills has to offer.
Ivan Pretty Memorial Tournament
We have been a hole sponsor at the Ivan Pretty Memorial golf tournament at stunning Sandpiper Golf Course for years now – Erik worked with Ivan Pretty on construction at the golf course in the early days and we are proud to be part of this great tournament!
We sponsor a hole in the Agassiz Fire Fighter’s golf tournament every year – play the tournament for your chance to win $25,000 for a hole in one!
