Trainyard Connect

A Monthly Kindness Initiative

Since opening The Trainyard General Store in June of 2016, finding ways to connect and give back to our community has been important to us. In June 2017 we launched “Trainyard Connect,” a monthly kindness initiative that allows us to support the amazing work being done in our community by non-profit organizations.

We partner with a local organization for a period of two to three months whose work strengthens our community. During the agreed upon month(s) we celebrate the work being done and donate 5% of profits to support their continued community building work.

For February-April 2019 we will be partnering with Easter Seals Nova Scotia, they offer a variety of programs that promote independence, mobility and inclusion for Nova Scotians living with disabilities.

Please take a moment to check out our previous partner organizations. To date we have donated over $4000 to our partners as part of Trainyard Connect!

We are so excited to be in a position to spread even a tiny bit of kindness within our community, and grateful to everyone who has supported us in getting to this point.

Thank you!
