Derksen Plumbing & Heating teams up with Live Different

LD130.1At Derksen, our commitment to community outreach has gone global.  Since 2011, Derksen Plumbing & Heating has teamed up with Canadian charity Live Different  to help provide food, clean water and shelter for the people of Neuvo Renacer, a small community within Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.

In February 2015, a team from Derksen Plumbing & Heating traveled to Neuvo Renacer to help build three homes for very deserving families facing the daily challenges of extreme poverty.  While building, our team had the opportunity to learn firsthand the day to day struggles they face and their tireless perseverance towards sustainable development.

We would like to extend a special thanks to members from East Side Ventilation and Air Movement Services Ltd. for joining us on the ground in Nuevo Renacer.  In addition, a special thanks to Wescan Electrical Mechanical Services and Randall Plumbing & Heating for their sponsorship and support.

Currently, Derksen Plumbing & Heating is sponsoring Live Different in Cap Hatien, Haiti where the construction of additional classrooms at the local school is taking place. The project initiative is to help ensure more local children receive an education and they have facilities available to do that.

Live Different continues to assist local community leaders within the area. Together we can all affect change.  We encourage you to visit their website to learn more about Live Different or connect with them by email at  As an alternative method you can contact Kendra Jackson at 204-944-3445 or by email at
