Why We Are Committed to Community Involvment
Upright Doors in the Community
We believe strong, vibrant communities develop when consumers buy locally, and the local economy depends on it. Parks, financing roads, public schools and walkways, as well as youth sports leagues all benefit as local businesses pay taxes that go to their city and local government. Dealing with, and supporting local businesses who are dedicated to contributing to their communities helps those same businesses continue to support the various programs and organizations for our children and youth in Uxbridge, Ontario.
