Centra recognizes the role that community has played in our success, and we try to do all we can to give back. We set up the Centra Cares Foundation for that very reason. Since its inception, Centra Cares has fundraised and donated over $750,000 to local charities and is continuing to do great work.
Centra has long been committed to giving back to the community. Charity, humanitarian work, and fundraising that in 2015 Centra Cares became a registered charity in order to better support our mission.
There are many organizations in need of basic everyday items for distribution to those less fortunate than ourselves. Every year our employees nominate charities and causes that are close to their hearts and in need of support. Centra then reaches out to these organizations in a range of ways, be it through financial donations, supplying manpower, or supplying and installing windows, doors, and siding to the organizations in need.
We’ve already raised over $750,000 for good causes, and we’re keeping up the momentum. Learn about some of the important work we’ve done below, and visit the Centra Cares website to discover more.
