Fraser Surrey Docks Holiday Food Drive
November 20th, 2013
The employees at Fraser Surrey Docks are holding another food drive this Holiday Season from November 20th to December 16th to benefit the Surrey Food Bank.
The Surrey Food Bank is a non-profit organization committed to “helping people help themselves.” Since 1983, the Surrey Food Bank has been assisting low-income individuals and families who live in Surrey and North Delta by providing bi-weekly food hampers to supplement their food needs. Sometimes people will rely on the Surrey Food Bank when faced with an unfortunate setback or crisis in their lives, the Surrey Food Bank helps those in need of a temporary food “bridge” to get them through their crisis. The Surrey Food Bank touches many people’s lives in the Surrey and North Delta areas and is a critical component of our community structure and well-being.
Fraser Surrey Docks employees have been involved with this initiative for many years during the Holiday Season and are proud to continue to support this worthy cause.

BRING YOUR KIDS TO WORK DAY AT FSD – A TRUE FAMILY AFFAIR
November 6th, 2013
On Wednesday November 6,2013 Fraser Surrey Docks participated in this nationwide event and welcomed employees and customers to bring their children to work. The focus was about how work fits into the family and community life balance and what jobs and opportunities are in the port and marine industry. Fraser Surrey Docks provided the students with an opportunity to review company operations as a group before spending the remainder of the day with their parents. This provided a more fulsome perspective looking at safety, marketing, operations and maintenance. The setting provided some great interaction with a wide variety of staff and provided opportunity for the students to dialogue with one another. We understand the new format was well received.
Students from several schools within the Lower Mainland were involved with learning about :
- Safe working practices ( a full Health and Safety orientation was presented )
- Awareness of the power of heavy machinery( view the full operation of a vessel`s cranes and the movement of cargo from a ship to a truck )
- Fellow worker responsibilities ( tour of a heavy machinery maintenance shop )
- Understanding how consumer products such as electronic equipment that they own at home comes into their possession (due to the movement of cargo on a global maritime perspective)
- The global market reach and procurement practices of a major marine terminal in Canada’s largest port
In attendance were:
• Devin Ogg (Alex Ogg)
• Dean Cusick (Nicole Cusick)
• Glen Doduck (Alexa Doduck)
• Marc Felton (Matthew Felton)
• David Keeling (Tyler Keeling)
• Don Kask (Luci Kask)
• Brian Mowbray (Calum Mowbray)
• Jeff Scott (Nicholas Scott)
• Leonard Cox (Michaela Cox)
• Wayne Honey ( Kelsey Honeyman )
And a few others including customer Bob Minato ( Sean ) and Leo Landry ( Oliver )
We were pleased to welcome all of the students into our FSD family for the day. We believe this collaborative approach will provide for a positive foundation as they continue to build our future.
