Our mission to help everyone feel right at home includes giving back to the communities where we live and work. Read all about the causes close to our hearts, and check back regularly to find out how you can help support upcoming campaigns.
Every Child Matters
We join all of Canada in mourning the lives of Indigenous children lost at former residential schools. In honour of Indigenous communities across the country, Urban Barn has donated $5,000 to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society.
Celebrating Pride & Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth
Urban Barn celebrated Pride 2021 with a free digital art giveaway. For every download, we donated $1 to Covenant House Vancouver, for a total donation of $5,000 to help support LGBTQ+ youth. Donations from our French Pride Art went to Fondation Émergence, who received $1,500 to support their work improving the lives of LGBTQ+ people in Quebec.
In an unprecedented time of need, we wanted to find a way to help improve the lives of frontline workers. With $32,000 of new Urban Barn furniture, we helped make over lounges for Lions Gate’s Respiratory Therapists and Operating Room staff.
Blanket the country
Introduced in 2011, Blanket the Country gives warmth to people and animals experiencing homelessness. Together with our customers, we’ve donated over 50,000 fleece blankets and $15,000 to charities across Canada.
Health Care Workers Discount
In the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Urban Barn extended a 15% discount to first responders and customers working in hospitals, medical clinics and care homes.
