Adlyn proudly supports the Bissell Centre

Josh Hudon, owner of Adlyn Construction has been such a tremendous support to our organization. For example, he worked tirelessly of 9 months to collect 1000 bags of clothing and needed items for Bissell Centre. He then followed that up by raising $25,000 through our Coldest Night of the Year campaign (the highest amount raised in the province by any team)!

When you look at his five-star reviews online and his incredible commitment to the community, you begin to understand that Josh gives his all to everything he does and is a great example of the kind of business leader that we all need to support.

From the team here at Bissell Centre, thank you Josh for all of you have done for our community! Keep up the great work!

How we help

December 1, 2019

We have kicked off our campaign for CNOY20 and are very excited to raise more money for Bissell Centre.

Watch for raffles, silent auctions & other exciting events!

We look forward to working with our sub-trades, clients & community to raise much needed money for our city's homeless population.

July 24, 2019

Every July, Bissell Centre champions a campaign called Drop Your Gonch, which brings in thousands of new pairs of underwear for our city's homeless & most vulnerable. This greatly helps to improve dignity, self worth and hygiene.

This year we ran a small internal #dropyourgonch underwear drive and were able to bring in 133 pairs of underwear & bra's in under a week. Thank you so much to our sub-trades & suppliers that made that possible.

For the second year in a row, Bissell Centre has participated in Coldest Night of the Year. A nationwide fundraising campaign that brings in much needed money to outreach centres across Canada.

For the CNOY19 campaign, our fundraising team, Adlyn Executes, raised a whopping $25,300 placing 6th overall of over 3360 teams!

Our Captain, Josh Hudon, placed 10th overall of 23,786 individual walkers, raising $12,108!

We're looking ahead to CNOY20. It's Cold Out There

December 1, 2018

From March 1st - November 30th, 2018 we held a clothing drive to help bring warmth & dignity to Edmonton's homeless community.

We are very proud to say, that because of the generosity of so many of you, we raised 1084 bags of clothing and other essentials for Bissell Centre.

Thank you to everyone involved - from the media to the friends, family & total strangers that donated, and offered to be drop off locations. It truly was a community effort.
