We’re delighted to donate to the Canucks Autism Network on behalf of our Employee of the Month Kurt. At Canadian Mattress Recycling, we believe in supporting our employees and the communities around us.

Kurt, our February employee of the month, wears many hats at work. He’s been a helpful employee for the year he’s been with us. As a great addition to our team, Kurt’s help in recycling mattresses and furniture haven’t gone unnoticed.

For his charitable donation, Kurt asked that we donated to the Canucks Autism Network.

The Canucks Autism Network

Founded by the Aquilinis, co-owners of the Vancouver Canucks, the organization aims to help children with autism thrive. Play through sport has always been one of the most engaging ways children connect with each other. Since 2008, the organization has delivered hundreds of programs across British Columbia, engaging thousands of children with autism and their family through the collaborative play of sports. Through activities such as hockey, these children develop lasting friendships.

One of the organization’s latest achievement is making Rogers Arena an “autism aware” facility. With the support of the Vancouver Canucks and the Canucks for Kids Fund, the Aquilinis introduced sensory kits and quiet rooms for the stadium. In addition, this initiative have also provided staff with training, so that they know how to engage and help those with autism at family-friendly events.
