A Langley plumbing company has decided to donate five per cent of its income from November and December this year to the Langley Food Bank and they want to challenge other small businesses to do the same.
Murrayville Plumbing owner Spencer Turley said he hopes to be able to donate up to $5,000 to the food bank on the first week of January.
“We have been in business for two years. We’ve always liked the idea of giving back to our community and those close to us,” said Turley.
“Recently our company volunteered with the Langley Legion to collect and deliver poppy boxes. This idea is what sparked the conversation about giving back over the holidays.”
His fiancé suggested the local food bank and Turley thought it was the perfect fit.
“We hope it is the start of a great year for Langley and its small businesses and charities,” he said.
He’s hoping the idea will take off.
“I thought it may be a cool idea to challenge other local business to give back to Langley this holiday season.
“You never know, this could inspire others to give back too.”
