Welcome Sign – Community Involvement At The Sign Depot’s Grand Opening

Signing In And Signing Up For Community Involvement

On Friday May 14,2010 The Sign Depot opened it’s doors to the community in hopes raise awareness of The Food Bank Of Waterloo Region newest campaign, Waterloo Region’s DIG IN Campaign. Coinciding our Grand Opening with a charitable organization is just one of the ways The Sign Depot encourages community involvement. We hosted a community bbq in which the attendees were treated to hamburgers and sausages on a bun from our friends at Stemmlers Meats in exchange for non perishable food donations for The Food Bank Of Waterloo Region. We believe in giving back to the local community that supports us and this was a great opportunity to show off our new surroundings while contributing to a important local cause.
Our first contributor was also our smallest

The Sign Depot - Kitchener Ontario We invited family members, clients, friends and Mayor Carl Zehr to see what goes on inside our new sign shop located at 51 Borden Ave S. Kitchener, Ontario, formally the Doon Twines building. This historic building, now owned by Access Storage, has been re-purposed but many of its heritage features were kept intact. This makes a perfect match for our traditional wood signs.

We had a great time and it looks like our attendees did as well. More importantly we filled all the boxed for the Food Bank and it was all contributed to the local Dig In Campaign For The Food Bank Of Waterloo Region.
