We do this by promoting and supporting projects in Italy and abroad that help overcome these barriers and drive people to express their full potential.
“Our faith in love and justice calls upon us to build a better world than the one we have found. It calls upon us to give back to the world all the good things we have received, so the less fortunate or most vulnerable members of our society get a chance to achieve a life full of opportunity and beauty. So those who take up the challenge will find concrete opportunities and the energy required to thrive in their own lives.” Andrea Bocelli

Our Gib-San team actively pursues initiatives within the communities we serve.

One example being, the Dundas Street Grille. We have been patrons of this establishment for over 30 years. The pandemic was incredibly hard on the food and beverage industry. In an effort to support this struggling business, we purchased hundreds of meals weekly, donating them to local women’s shelters, the Haven on Queensway, local churches, our team and others.
