Grandview Corners (GND)

Grandview Corners is part of the White Rock/South Surrey region of BC. Our office is on the corner of 160th Street and 24th Avenue, South Surrey. With a population of 54,000, we have the largest concentration of people over the age of 60 in Surrey.  Our office is in a bustling and fast-developing area with lots of real estate development. We are part of a community that offers many opportunities to support projects in the education, health, social and recreational areas.

Since we became part of the Western Family, for three years in a row, our branch has exceeded the fundraising targets. We have been selected once for the $5,000 infrastructure grant (which we awarded to the Peach Arch Hospital’s emergency room expansion project). In addition, we have:

  • Awarded $500 student bursaries each year to students at Earl Marriott School (in 2016, the amount increased to $750).
  • Pooled our matching grant funds with the Semiahmoo branch to buy ukuleles for the Pacific Heights School’s music program
  • Pooled our matching grant funds with the Semiahmoo branch to buy a touch tank that houses sea critters for the students’ science program.

We are proud to be in the top 5 branches to raise highest funds per employee – a considerable feat given the size of our office! We will strive to keep up our fundraising efforts to support our communities through the Foundation!
