Rick’s Heart Foundation is the result of the philanthropy of renowned British Columbia businessman, Rick Diamond, founder of Diamond Delivery.
Diamond Delivery is a transportation service provider that offers honest solutions at a competitive price in order to set a standard in this industry and achieve profitable growth. Mr. Diamond has a strong passion for local and global communities. With a strong focus on corporate social responsibility the Foundation provides support for many pressing local and global concerns including addiction, low income and homelessness.
Issues such as addiction and homelessness affect over 11,000 people in BC alone. The Foundation works hard to improve the poverty situation in Surrey and the surrounding greater Vancouver area by funding community building events and charities, addiction recovery centers and collecting monetary and clothing donations.
A message from the founder: Rick Diamond:
“We have been a leader in the transportation and distribution industry for over 30 years. We owe our success to our loyal customers, devoted team, state of the art technology, and professional drivers. Giving back both at home and abroad has always been a priority and today we are working to take it a step higher and build a new corporate model in which environmental initiatives and philanthropy are an integral part of who we are. We know from experience that doing good is not only the right thing to do, but contrary to what many in the business community believe, it can also be good for business.
Everyone has something they can contribute. In addition to providing financial support to worthy causes, as a transportation company we are able to support many organizations by assisting them with the transport of goods that would otherwise be prohibitively costly. We have used our transport capabilities locally for such things as delivering summer lunch programs, pink shirts for Pink Shirt Day and internationally to deliver medical equipment to Africa through a local BC Operated Charity.
Today, more than ever, corporations must step up to address the many serious humanitarian and environmental challenges that we face. We are determined, through our foundation and our companies, to make a difference. We invite you to join with us.”
