Today we're highlighting Gordy and Ravinder Dodd, finalists for our Generosity of Spirit Award.
Gordy and Ravinder arrived in Canada in 1977 from India and grew their furniture business from a 2,500 square foot space to three stores on the Island. For the past 40 years, the Dodds have organized and paid for annual Thanksgiving dinners for more than 40,000 homeless Victorians and 1,000 in Nanaimo. For seven years, they have donated Christmas dinners for hundreds. Their annual Walk for Peace supported by 20 volunteers motivates hundreds of walkers to fundraise for causes such as Jeneece Place and Victoria Hospice.
The Generosity of Spirit Award is sponsored by the United Way of Greater Victoria. Winners will be announced at our event on November 22.
