Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd. is a strong supporter of the Starfish Pack School Program in Vernon. Through volunteer time, individual and corporate donations, KWL helps the Kalamalka Rotary Club, Vernon Boys & Girls Club and School District 22 provide reliable access to healthy food each weekend during the school year. Each weekend a backpack is sent home with 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, snacks and fresh fruit. This ensures that kids can show up on Monday mornings able to focus on learning, and helps fight food insecurity and hunger in the community.
Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd. sponsored a hole and submitted a team for the annual 2018 Young Life charity golf tournament held at Royal York golf course in Armstrong. Although it was a rainy day the sun did manage to show itself a few times and the event was a great success with good fun had by all. The event raised $8000 to support the work of volunteers who care about reaching the teens of the North Okanagan.

About 50 Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd. staff, family members, and friends volunteered to help restore a spawning channel alongside Mosquito Creek in North Vancouver.
Activities included removing invasive species such as holly and ivy, removing garbage and stream obstructions, and planting new native vegetation along the creek. This work, along with other recent work done along the creek, is helping native fish species such as Coho salmon to return to Mosquito Creek after an absence of several years.
