Although known for our professional, diligent and experienced work in the moving industry, Number 1 Van Lines likes to help people with more than just relocation. The month of June has brought an activity that made us remember how much we love to volunteer. Namely, with an altruistic approach and our passion for sports, we did some volunteer work for Art Aggregate Hamilton and gave life to their design of a handmade mini putt course. This undertaking has enriched the whole RBC Canadian Open experience. Having that the outcome turned out to be truly wonderful, we would like to share the experience with you.
Why do we love to volunteer?
With our knowledge and expertise, we started aiding individuals to relocate their belongings, and thus better their personal and business lives. We salute everyone’s efforts towards progress, and always strive to help. Art Aggregate captured our attention with their innovative and creative approach to bold and fresh ideas. Supporting people who are not afraid to dream big, and helping them realize those thoughts is just one of the aspects in which we, Number 1 Van Lines and Art Aggregate correlate. However, we tend not to support solely by words of recognition. Rather, we love to volunteer and help in whatever way we can. After all, helping people has been the main principle around which this company came to be.

Why is volunteering good?
In a time where people find it hard to make ends meet, where the economy is unstable and worries are not hard to come by, it is crucial that we are there for each other. That is why we love to volunteer. We believe that is a paramount component of a successful, prosperous and happy community. We also believe that everyone should do as much as they can to make this place better for everyone. Having that the city of Hamilton is pretty keen on sports, this time around, we’ve decided to support an interesting physical activity that is golf on a national scale.
How have we benefited from volunteering
When you strive towards perfection, no knowledge is surplus. At the very least, it can help you understand people better, and provide you with otherwise unobtainable experience. However, this valuable understanding that this action brought us is not the only benefit of volunteering. In all honesty, it has made us even better people. And that is on an individual and group level. It has been proven many times that the sole act of a selfless deed enriches a person, and makes them feel better. Working together on a creative project for a noble cause has made us even closer as a team and a company. We have earned additional respect for each other, and come to realize how talents come in many shapes and forms.
Volunteering envokes creativity, compassion, and diligence. Projects like these make you learn how to think outside of the box, and truly praise ingenuity. Even if you are not the crafting expert, using this opportunity to learn makes the whole process even better. This versatility in virtues is the reason we love to volunteer. Besides making your community a better place, and thus enriching the lives of all residents, you are also bettering yourself as a person, a college, a parent, a partner, a child and anything and everything else you might be. By helping others, we are also helping ourselves!
