No matter what time of year, rain, sleet or shine, David Burns is there for us. His business, Burns’ Snow Removal has been run locally by his family for over 50 years. From the beginning, Dave says that his business has been “very community minded.”
For the past five years, Burns’ Snow Removal has quietly supported United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes’ community garden initiatives by making soil and straw deliveries.
Along with current community development work, United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes has expanded their Community Garden projects exponentially for the year of 2019. 30,000 sq. ft. of land has been donated to United Way CKL through a land use agreement with Crayola Canada. An unused lot on Crayola’s property in Lindsay, Ontario will now be turned into a community garden which will provide produce for programs such as the Good Food Box, Meals on Wheels, food banks, school nutrition programs, and so much more. Community Gardens yield more than food, they provide many teaching opportunities and will draw people together socially to help strengthen our neighbourhoods.
From the start, David has been extremely enthusiastic and prepared to help out this initiative in any way he can.
David Burns has been a consistent example of corporate responsibility in our community, offering lawn maintenance and snow clearing services to United Way year-round.
Thank you, David.
