Waterloo Region has been home to Jim all of his life. He was raised in Wellesley and then after graduating as a licenced funeral director, moved to Waterloo where he eventually became a partner at Erb & Good Family Funeral Home.
Jim’s has devoted much of his volunteer time to not-for-profit organizations and inter-faith initiatives in Kitchener Waterloo. He was a member of Waterloo Council for eight years and in 2011 was recognized by The Working Centre at the 24th annual Mayor’s Dinner.
For 27 years Jim has been a member of the Kitchener Conestoga Rotary Club (KCRC). KCRC’s community achievements have included the Dream Home, Lobsterfest, significant international service projects in Africa and most recently the Turkey Drive for House of Friendship Christmas Hamper Project. The Turkey Drive raises approximately $250,000.00 yearly to make sure that every deserving family who receives a Christmas Hamper from House of Friendship also has a fresh turkey for their holiday dinner – something we all take for granted! BOX 11 will donate a portion of their proceeds of this year’s show and sale to the Turkey Drive.
This year BOX 11 invited KCRC to be their Charity Partner for the BOX Art Show and Sale. KCRC was delighted to accept the invitation and looks forward to supporting the creativity of local artists and receiving support for the Turkey Drive – a win win for our community!
