We are happy to announce Subway's Victoria Drive location has been honoured with a Corporate Good Neighbour Award by South Vancouver Neighbourhood House and the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of British Columbia!
Subway received the award at the ANHBC's annual Good Neighbours Awards in May, during Neighbourhood House Week. You can read more about Subway's valuable contribution to their community below.
Subway Restaurant at 6402 Victoria Drive, Vancouver is recognized for their community and neighbourly contributions to South Vancouver Neighbourhood House (SVNH).
In the last three years, Subway has provided fundraiser donations (gift cards) and supplemented meals with free treats and snacks for program participants.
Their kindness and generosity is demonstrated by their warmth, willingness to help, and connection with multiple people.
They remember faces and names, which makes such a difference, not only for those new to Canada, but for those who live and work within the neighbourhood.
Many of the participants that access SVNH programs come to the programs for many reasons (social connection, settlement services, rebuilding lives, community engagement, etc.). The owners of Subway understand the complexities of being a newcomer.
Subway's owners are a testimony of Canadian culture (warm, open, friendly, etc.) and neighbourly spirit!
