Supporting Our Community

From its beginning 25 years ago, OP is and always will be a family business. Helping one’s neighbor in a time of need is as much a part of Newfoundland and Labrador tradition as enjoying our woods and waters.  It is strongly valued and engrained in our culture.  Here are a few of the groups that we are proud to support.

JDRF

JDRF

Meet our friend Colby.  Our families have been friends for years.  Colby was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes in 2013 at the age of 7.  During the past 5 years Colby has been an Ambassador for the NL chapter of JDRF by increasing awareness about type 1 Diabetes and by fundraising for a cure.  To date his family team the “Jediabetics” have raised over $10,000 for diabetes research.

He was recently chosen from candidates all across Canada as the 2017 Boston Pizza Youth Ambassador of the year. We are so proud of the young role model Colby has become, and we are happy to support him and his family in raising funds to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.

If you wish to help Colby reach his 2017 donation goal for the 2017 JDRF TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes “Jediabedics” team feel free to check out his team captain page at:

Lilly Pond Derby for Dialysis

OP is owned by Gary & Judy Meadus.  The couple are strongly rooted in the community of Old Perlican and have been active leaders and supporters of many Non-profit groups over the years.  In 2007 Gary & Judy were part of a group of outdoor enthusiasts that co-founded the Lilly Pond Derby For Dialysis.  The group, who have a passion for helping others, raise money to buy equipment for NL dialysis units. For 10 years this group has worked hard for donations to make hospital visits more comfortable for Dialysis patients in NL. OP has been a proud supporter of the group and its efforts.
