Empire – Building better communities...

May 19, 2015

Proving that they take community-building seriously, Paul Golini, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, Industry Relations of Empire Communities recently delivered a $40,000.00 gift to OneFoundation for Niagara Health System to support hospital advancement across Niagara.

The company, which currently has the master-planned community of Imagine underway in the south-west corner of Niagara Falls, takes pride in designing homes and neighbourhoods that help enhance the way people live and interact every day. This philosophy led to their ‘Empire Heroes’ Program as a way to mark 20 years of developing and building communities. The program assists those working in the hospital, law enforcement, fire fighting and other EMS services with purchasing a new home in neighbourhoods where Empire builds. With each home purchased through the Empire Heroes Program, Empire makes a $1,000 donation to the local hospital foundation. The offer will be extended to armed services personnel, reservists and veterans as the next division of the development moves forward.

Mr. Golini elaborates, ‘Not only has the ‘Empire Heroes’ Program resulted in $40,000.00 to benefit local hospital care, this is the perfect way for new homeowners – especially newcomers to Niagara – to participate in bettering their community. What better way to connect with each other than to support services that are used by all of us?’

OneFoundation board member Roland Giguere and NHS Communications Director Brady Wood graciously accepted Empire’s generous gift that will have a significant impact on patient care. Funds will be directed toward the current campaign to enhance and replace equipment for the Endoscopy Program across the NHS. OneFoundation Managing Director Kristina Manzi added thanks for Empire’s plans for continued support, ‘Imagining’ a better community is something we definitely share in common.
