An Endeavor Close to Our Hearts
Brody McDearmid, accountant, company partner and trusty Meridian CFO, spearheads the CAN fundraiser each year. At 4 years old, Brody’s son, David, was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Since being diagnosed with ASD, David has surprised Brody and his wife Carrie over and over with his ever growing and evolving list of unique talents and abilities. He’s bright, funny, and has an outgoing, warm and charismatic personality. David is the inspiration behind Meridian’s commitment to the Canucks Autism Network and the annual fundraiser.
Along with the annual CAN fundraiser, Meridian offers an Acts of Kindness program, and a fundraiser program which provides 30% of funds raised to approved organizations. Additionally, Meridian has made donations to local food banks, the Tsawwassen Boys and Girls Club, Surrey Christmas Bureau, and much more. Interested in more information?
