It only takes one little action to put big things in motion.
Back in the early days of UBC’s Okanagan campus in Kelowna, which opened in September of 2005, Source donated reception furniture to one of the school’s public seating areas. The loveseat, chairs, and coffee tables got plenty of use, and after years of round-the-clock wear and tear from an ever-increasing student population, the furniture began to show its age.
Fast forward to March of this year when UBC student Kiri sent us a Facebook message about the popular seating spot: “Hey Source!The furniture that you donated to the lobby of UBC Okanagan’s Campus Administration building has been very well loved. Any chance on a new furniture facelift? Thanks, Kiri (a UBCO student who has sat on these comfy chairs a lot)”
We loved hearing from someone with a personal connection to our products and we *definitely* wanted the students at UBCO to have great places to sit, so we jumped into action! Source Account Executive Brian Anderson had handled the original donation to the university and still works at Source Kelowna, so we passed Kiri’s message on to him.
Brian connected with UBC’s administration, the order for new furniture was placed, and UBCO’s Campus Administration building now has a fresh, inviting place to take five:
Thanks again to Kiri for making contact, and we hope all the students, staff, and faculty at UBCO enjoy more years of comfortable seating!
