Community Involvement

Greely Sand & Gravel Inc. always tries to lend a helping hand to CHEO.  In 2020, Greely Sand & Gravel Inc. supported CHEO’s outdoor classroom where French is held at their school.   The donation of 3/8″-5/8″ Riverwash Stone, 1 1/2″ Riverwash stone, and Adventure Playground Mulch will allow for the kids to learn through sensory and dexterity.   “It’s been so amazing to be outside everyday where we can have the kids explore.  We are so grateful!!!!” says Sarah.  

For 2020,  Greely Sand & Gravel Inc. supported the Ottawa Food Garden ProjectGreely Sand and Gravel, who are also partners to the project, have committed to a significant donation of soil. “We are proud to build upon our longstanding community gardening partnerships throughout Ottawa and support this project to ensure families have what they need to get started”, says Brent Pyper, owner of Greely Sand and Gravel.”

And in the spring of 2012, GS&G did the impossible, transforming loads of top quality soil, stone, sand and mulch into loads of money for the Childrens’ Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). GS&G donated $5 from every household load of landscaping supplies, picked up or delivered.  As a result, GS&G generously donated $25,380, with the help of our dedicated customers, to support CHEO.

Year after year, Greely Sand & Gravel Inc. continues to support CHEO’s Dream of A Lifetime. Greely Sand & Gravel Inc. Inc’s giving just keeps on growing!

To honour GS&G for their involvement in the community, we were awarded the Osgoode Ward Special Business Commendation Award “in recognition of outstanding volunteerism that has made significant contributions to ensuring residents have opportunities to become active and involved in the community.”

GS&G provided a helping hand to Greely’s fire department. A pumping station was built on our site to allow easy and quick access to fill their fire trucks with clean water to better serve the Greely area in emergencies.

GS&G has established a Tom Thompson Memorial Scholarship Fund (an award set-up for a long time friend and employee) to encourage education and help support children or grandchildren of their employees.
