Over the years, the company has worked closely with

schools on several aspects including hot lunches, a backpack

program, school bussing, support fundraisers, and sponsor

awards. FMGOC is also focused on ensuring community

members have opportunities for employment and provides

on-the-job training and mentorship.

Community health and safety initiatives include donations

to regional health centers, operations of the community

Dorothy McDonald Centre, local Health Centre, and local fire

department funding and sponsorships.

have also been able to build and develop the Elders Centre,

Youth Centre, Dorothy McDonald Centre and Community

Arena. A long-term care facility is also under development,”

King said.

“Our community, our clients, our

suppliers, and our people are all

engaged in the business on some

level. We believe everyone contributes

to our success. We reach our goals

by working safely, acting reliably, and

delivering quality services. Interacting

with respect, care, honesty, and

demonstrating strong ethics is the

cornerstone of our company.”
