Rockport Carrier Co Matches Funds Raised from Fleur Fashion Show, Doubling the Donation to Transition House

Apr 06, 2023

Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan – Rockport Carrier Co made a surprise donation of $5,000 to the Moose Jaw Transition House last month following the success of the Fleur Fashion Show, an event that raised a total of $5,000.

The fashion show was organized by Rowan Clothing Co, and when asked how Rockport got involved with the event, Cameron Irwin stated –

“We have a very special relationship with Rowan Clothing and had been following along with this event for some time. After seeing the outcome and realizing the amount of time and effort they put into this fashion show, along with it being for such a great cause, we felt it was the perfect time to help boost their donation by matching it.”

Rockport Carrier Co has been operating in Moose Jaw for the last 25 years, specializing in the transportation of various freight loads through their van, deck, and 3PL division. Their sense of community is what ultimately pushed them to get involved.

“The Moose Jaw Transition House is such an amazing asset to our community,” Irwin stated. “I’ve been told that the Transition House is Moose Jaw’s best keep secret, for all the right reasons. They were in need of some well-deserved donations to help with maintenance and restructuring of their facility. Representatives told me their goal was to make women feel like they’re at home, and we hope that matching Rowan’s donation will push other companies in our community to do the same.”

Irwin hopes to continue supporting the Transition House in the future, and is excited to see who else in the community will help out with this cause.
