serving Niagara

Our Story

Community Crew was first launched in 2008 as Live Different.  It’s focus was to inspire the residents of Niagara to make a difference in their region through community service. As a result, hundreds of volunteers are now serving in non-profit organizations here and around the world.

In 2013, we took a formal step to pursue charitable status and tackle poverty’s effect in Niagara. Today, with the help of Community Partners, we offer proactive and reactive programs that make a difference in the lives of hundreds of kids in Niagara and across Canada.

Here's a sample of we've been able to do
