In 2006 Redwoods implemented the Redwoods Cares program where each year the staff selects a local Langley based charity to become the recipient of the charitable rounds initiative. Each time a staff member plays a complimentary round of golf they pay $2 which is awarded to this charity. In addition, each time a public golfer is able to golf on a complimentary basis (often a silent auction prize donated to a charity) the player is asked to donate $5. These donations are accumulated during the year and at the end of the calendar year the funds are tabulated and awarded to the charity of choice.
For the past year of 2013, we have made our donation of $2300 to Walnut Grove Secondary School specifically in their Learning Support Services department. These funds will be utilized for resource materials adapted for student ability, assisted technology to help students with academic communication, writing output, and numeracy skills, and programs that target specific student weaknesses: writing, numeracy, and reading comprehension.
For this year of 2014 we will be donating to the Special Olympics of Langley. These funds will be used towards all of their Sports Programs; now standing at 14 different sports programs for Intellectually challenged Athletes in the langley community.
