Allan and his team believe that partnership goes beyond the business.
It’s about looking after your community as a whole and those in it. For many years, Allan has sponsored, coached, educated and mentored. Here are some of Allan’s greatest partnerships in the community.
On September 12th, Allan was the Presenting Sponsor for the Annual event held by The Food Bank of Waterloo Region, Waffles in the Warehouse. Waffles in the Warehouse provides the opportunity to participate in the food insecurity conversation. It acts to raise awareness about food assistance in Waterloo Region and helps to inspire people to be involved in their community.
For 3 years, Allan has sponsored the KW Art Gallery Black and Gold Gala fundraiser, designed to help sustain the Gallery’s programming, educational and exhibition activities. Allan feels that the arts are an important part of the community and enjoys attending the event on an annual basis.

Whether it’s building schoolhouses, providing scholarships or funding technical training programs, the Pinball Clemons Foundation strives to help provide youth with the necessities they need to move forward in their academic journey.
Just Give is a campaign designed to inspire kindness throughout our communities by filling the food banks for the summer; a time when they are usually empty and client visits increase.
Last year, hundreds of schools from Durham to Niagara came together and raised over 440,000 pounds of food! This year, we are striving to reach our goal of 1.5 million pounds of food. Let’s fill the food banks for the summer and make a difference for families in need.
If interested, we would be happy to supply a complete list of partnerships with local businesses, sports teams and hospitals in the community.
