Cleaner Guy Beaulieu not only keeps the Fernie Women’s Resource Centre sparkling clean, he also uses his job to help the centre keep up its good work.

Beaulieu, owner and operator of the cleaning company, Gather Dust, has been donating the proceeds from the bottles his company collects in the places he cleans. He has donated $1,330 to the Fernie Women’s Centre in the last two and a half years. This money goes towards programs and activities that are not funded. It allows the Women’s Centre to offer services and programs that they could not without this donation.

“Guy puts a lot of hard work into this endeavour. He collects, stores, sorts and takes the bottles to the depot,” said Lauren Fox, outreach worker with the Fernie Women’s Resource Centre. “It takes time and energy but he is willing because he wants to give back where he can.

“It is businesses like Gather Dust that help make a difference in the Elk Valley.”

Guy said he chose the Women’s Resource Centre because he wanted the money to stay in the community.
