At Deetken, giving back to our local and global community is part of our job. Members of the Deetken team volunteer with foundations and community-based organizations focused on vulnerable populations in Vancouver, sit on the board of a micro-finance institution that helps low income indigenous populations in Guatemala, sponsor a refugee family, volunteer for the audit and risk committee of a major charity, and work to maintain our children’s schools and coach their soccer teams.
