At Fergus & Bix, we believe it's the communities we're in that makes us great. Because of that, we understand the importance for us to give back and to be actively involved in the communities in which we operate. In 2010 we developed "The Charity Tap" program to do just that. With every sale of our feature beer, we take 50 cents and donate it towards a select local charity or community initiative. Since the program's inception, the Fergus & Bix group of restaurants has contributed nearly $37000 towards worthy causes.
Youth Central (formerly Child and Youth Friendly Calgary) envisions a society where all youth participate in shaping a vibrant community. They believe that young people who experience involvement and philanthropy at an early age grow up with an ongoing sense of responsibility.
Through various initiatives, Youth Central provides youth the opportunity to volunteer, serve on steering committees, voice their opinions to business leaders and politicians, learn about the diversity in their community, serve on a youth foundation and develop citizenship skills. Programs are primarily aimed at youth between the ages of 12-18.
When junior and senior high school aged youth get involved in Youth Central’s programs, they gain experience in areas of volunteerism, philanthropy, teamwork and leadership. In addition, youth enhance their self-esteem while making new friendships. The community is opened up to them and they learn about its rich diversity, at the same time gaining valuable employment skills to help prepare them for the future!
