Turkstra Lumber has been operating in Hamilton and South Western Ontario for over 65 years. As active members of their community, Karen and Peter Turkstra sought to give back.
The Karen & Peter Turkstra Family Foundation Fund was established in 2012 to support the charitable giving of their family. Their prime focus has been on providing donations in the areas of youth, nutrition and education.
Since inception, the Karen & Peter Turkstra Family Foundation Fund has provided over 50 grants to community organizations including: Interval House of Hamilton, Hamilton Food Share, Mission Services of Hamilton, Healthy Community – Healthy Youth Flamborough and Robert Land Community Association amongst many other charities working to make Hamilton a vibrant and inclusive place.
Working with HCF, the Turkstra family are able to use their fund to address unmet needs in the community, now and forever.
