DUO GIVES BACK

As a proud member of the London community, we feel strongly about giving back and supporting a number of local charities and community groups. We continue to diversify our involvement in the community while maintaining our commitment to past organizations. Read on to learn more about the non-profit organizations we currently support.

DUO Building proudly partners with the StopGap Foundation to build accessibility ramps for single-step storefronts in the London community and help raise awareness about barriers in our urban environment.

Unity Project

The UNITY PROJECT provides emergency shelter and transitional housing with a peer-supported community model. They offer front-line support staff that are accessible 24/7…365 days a year, and work one-to-one with each resident to monitor and advance a personal action plan for stability and independence.

DUO Building has supported the UNITY PROJECT for over 8 years, and Pat Malloy volunteers his time on an ongoing basis as a board member. Recently, Pat helped organize a major fundraiser for dentists to help the homeless. Over $75,000 was raised to restore the Victorian Facade of the UNITY PROJECT residence. DUO also donated all of their time and materials used in the re-build at cost.

The foundation conducts cutting edge research to fight this devastating disease right here in London at the Bethanys Hope Research Labratory. The organization holds many fundraisers every year to support their research including the ‘Big Italian Kitchen Party’ in April.

DUO Building has been a proud sponsor for over 10 years of the annual Bethany’s Hope Gala. In 2014 the DUO team volunteered at the Rock the Park fundraiser.

Cancer Survivors Garden

The Cancer Survivors Garden at McKillop Park opened officially on June 3, 2012 – National Cancer Survivors Day and is located at the corner of Wonderland Road and Riverside. The garden serves not only as a place of celebration, but also as a place of inspiration and hope for families who are beginning their journey.

Zoltan Balogh coordinated the DUO Team’s involvement in designing the layout and building of the railings as well as the garden’s stonework.

Kids Teams

We are proud of our work and of the long-term relationships we have developed with our clients over our 39 years of business in the London community. We continue to look forward to developing new projects and meeting new clients.

In the beginning, we sponsored our own children’s teams and as they grew, we sponsored our clients’ children’s teams in both soccer and hockey over the years.

Parade of Renovations

Organized by the LHBA, the Parade of Renovations is in its 28th year. We are the only London renovator to participate in the parade since its creation in 1990. The parade promotes the local renovation industry and also donates the proceeds from ticket sales to local charities.

The parade is a unique opportunity for London residents see local renovations. You can often visit show homes to see newly built model homes any time, but it is not everyday that you get to see what renovators do.
