We celebrated our 25th Anniversary in a big way by Paying it Forward to deserving families within our community. In partnership with our trades and other community partners, we were able to help four families within Red Deer during difficult times.
True-Line believes in giving back to a community that has been very good to us. We don’t only donate money; we get right in there and do the work! From organizing charity ball tournaments to building houses in El Salvador, from riding 1800 km on motorcycles to building dream homes, we believe in doing our part! Some of the major organizations we are involved with are:
El Salvador Project
People say “Charity Begins At Home”. We believe “The World is our Home” and it is our moral responsibility to help our fellow man. We are so blessed to live in Central Alberta, one of the most prosperous regions in the world. People in Red Deer do such an amazing job with our local charities; we challenged our staff, friends and business friends to consider helping in a global way as well.
Earthquakes, hurricanes and a twelve-year civil war crippled El Salvador. One third of their six million people live on about $1 a day and many are forced to go without adequate food or shelter.
In 2012 Sue Neufeld, one of True-Line’s owners, made her first trip to El Salvador to help build houses for people living in absolute poverty. She personally experienced just how her donations went right to work for people with the greatest needs. After seeing the desperation firsthand, Sue made a commitment to do what she could to help. She set a goal to raise enough money to build 30 houses and return to El Salvador in 2013 with two teams of volunteers. With the help of the very generous people of Red Deer and area, along with our staff and trades, that goal was reached, not only in 2013, but was repeated in both 2014 and 2015. By the end of 2015, our True-Line El Salvador Project will have provided houses for 100 families!
Replacing houses like this... With homes like this... For families like this...
Through our parent organization, Shelter Canada, 30 teams are now building over 300 houses per year in El Salvador! We are a small part of a wonderful project that is helping to provide homes for over a thousand people per year! Amazing!

Watch our videos and share with us how heart-warming it is to give back! As John Bunyan said, “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you!”
If you are interested in helping with this project, the cost to sponsor a home is $3000, and every donation is tax deductible. Please email Sue Neufeld.
Kids With Cancer Charity Ride
Revving Up For Kids Charity Motorcycle Ride for Kids With Cancer
Rain or shine, hail or floods, the Neufeld family participates in a charity motorcycle ride to support kids with cancer.
In nine years since the start, the ride has raised $1.5 million. In 2013 the ride took place on the big Calgary flood weekend. Not a motorcycle rider around would have headed out on that rainy weekend just for pleasure, but for the kids, 60 riders rode out in the rain to raise money for the kids.
Trevor was riding for the kids while his house was flooding in Calgary!
Kinsmen Club, The Festival of Trees and The Red Deer Regional Health Foundation
Over the years True-Line has built over 20 lottery homes in Red Deer; for The Kinsmen Club, The Festival of Trees and The Red Deer Regional Health Foundation. We have helped these organizations raise over $3 million to help serve the community’s greatest needs.
Women’s Emergency Shelter and Youth and Volunteer Center
True-Line is very proud to have partnered with The Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter and the Youth and Volunteer Center helping them with their construction projects. We are so fortunate as a community to have these safe refuges for our women and children that are experiencing hard times. We have had an ongoing relationship with these organizations for close to twenty years.
Red Deer College
Education is one of the most important aspects in building a strong community. Through a partnership with Red Deer College, True-Line is a Presenting Sponsor of RDC’s Annual Wine Tasting Festival. This partnership ensures that the College can continue to enhance their programs, allowing Central Alberta residents to receive top notch education right here at home.
We at True-Line know many of the partnerships we have created with these worthwhile organizations would not be possible without the support we receive from our trades, suppliers, staff and customers. We cannot Thank You all enough for all you do to help us make this possible.
