Community Giving.


The Raw Office is committed to bettering our community with a variety of initiatives. Raw Office Community Giving Program falls into 3 categories:

1. Partnerships with Care Providers
2. Direct donation of PPE
3. Volunteering in the community

# 1 - Partnerships with Care Providers

  • Canadian Chiropractic Association
  • American Chiropractic Association
  • Canadian Association of Social Workers

The Raw Office has partnered with a number of Front-line care providers during the pandemic.

The goal is to provide support and safety for medical practitioners and front-line workers.

Criteria for Partner Selection

We chose to support organizations that had close contact with the general population and that can reach large amounts of people quickly for the largest impact during the pandemic. Assisting these groups helped meet the both the physical and psychological needs of the general population, who had been cut off from essential treatments.

These were care providers who could not have continued to provide needed personal services without the protection that The Raw Office PPE provided. We continue to help these providers, and the general public, safe.

We assist these organizations by taking an active role and helping them continue their respective missions thanks to sustainable revenue.

Here are examples of a few recent outcomes from The Raw Office charity program.

Native Women’s Resource Centre

Donated PPE enabled the Native Women’s Resource Centre to continue to provide inperson counselling and assistance and safe gathering spaces for Toronto’s indigenous women.

Smile Canada

Donated PPE enabled Smile Canada to resume operations following the second wave of the pandemic much more quickly than would have been possible otherwise.

# 3- Volunteering in the Community.
