When good friends of one of Walker Aggregates’
employees lost their home to a chimney fire, our
Duntroon employees rallied to raise money and
offer help. The family had no insurance and
nowhere to live. Walker Aggregates owned a
home located on the quarry expansion lands that
was slated to be demolished. Seeing a potential
solution, employees asked if the family could live
there until they got their lives in order. Volunteers
fixed the house up, and we replaced the furnace
so the house would be comfortable for living.
When the quarry licence was granted and the house had to be removed, it wasn’t demolished. Instead, it was donated to the family, who moved it a few kilometres down the road to their old property where a foundation had been prepared.
“It feels good to make a decision that so positively impacts one of our neighbours.”
Ken Lucyshyn, Executive Vice-President, Walker Aggregates
