Community Living Impact Story

Imagine this. You’re headed to a concert tonight. You’ve been looking forward to it for weeks. The vibe, the dreamy singer, the people – it’s going to be a great time!

You managed to snag third-row tickets, so if you needed to sit, it shouldn’t be much of an issue.The music starts, and like clockwork, everyone is standing around you. Your view of the stage is now of butts and backs. You could stand up if you weren’t so tired. But you can’t.

Just One Ripple Effect of Supporting Small

When we started Guelph Box we had the goal of supporting local small businesses and local charities. We never could have predicted the many other ways that it has impacted the community and we were greatly humbled when we received this email from a vendor last month. "We never realize the ripple actions that one project can have on so many people's lives. There is a small, independent printer across the road from our bakery - R&R Printing. They have been in business for almost 60 years. They have been hit hard, like most small businesses during this current situation. We've been keeping them busy with all of our labels for packaging, flyers, menus, etc. They have been thrilled to...
