Our Meridian Family has partnered with the Canuck’s Autism Network (CAN) and committed ourselves to supporting their cause and programs with our annual fundraising activities. CAN provides year-round, innovative, high quality sports, recreational, arts, and social programs for individuals and families living with autism while increasing awareness and providing autism training in communities across British Columbia. In short, CAN focuses on a three pronged approach: program delivery, training, and raising awareness of Autism.
During the month of April (Autism Awareness Month), we will be donating $1 for every pound of wings sold to Canucks Autism Network (CAN).
In 2009, Brody McDearmid, company partner, and his wife Carrie welcomed their son David into the world. Shortly thereafter David was diagnosed with Autism. David is a remarkable little boy, full of energy and enthusiasm for life. He is the inspiration behind our company commitment to support the Canucks Autism Network. Thanks to CAN, David, along with 100’s of other kids living with autism, have opportunities to participate in a variety of high-quality activities in a fun and safe environment, tailored for kids, teens and young adults with autism including sports, camps, social activities, and family events, with one to one support available from trained staff and dedicated volunteers.
