A round of applause for Working Gear

When you come across a company that is working hard to make a difference you have to share it. Working Gear is a non-profit that provides clothing and gear free of charge to low-income or unemployed individuals in search of employment around Vancouver. They are outfitted with anything from construction clothing and steel-toed boots to business casual attire and suits. They even offer a barber service in-house.

Working gear was also featured on CTV’s Holmes Family Effect. Professional contractor Mike Holmes, alongside his son and daughter, surprise deserving people by transforming their spaces. Holmes and his family created an updated and functional space for the folks at Working Gear. Plus they were able to get 800 pairs of work boots donated to the cause.

The majority of business casual donations come from individuals and local businesses. Most of the construction gear comes from partnerships and organizations in the construction sector. If you would like to learn more about this amazing non-profit or if you want to donate to their cause you can find that information at https://workinggear.ca/ or https://www.facebook.com/workinggearsociety/.

Updates and Changes

Dear OnRivet Friends,

After listening to your feedback and working to make OnRivet better for you, we have some exciting new changes to announce. We have made some major upgrades to how our purchase orders and bills work.

Going forward a purchase order and a bill will now be two separate entities. When you create a purchase order it’s only a purchase order. When you create a bill it’s only a bill. There is no longer a status of “pending” or “approved” for either purchase orders or bills.

OnRivet will continue to support Quickbooks syncing for bills but purchase orders do not have the option for Quickbooks syncing.

The link below will take you to a document that will walk you through everything that has changed and get you up to speed. All of these updates and changes will be coming soon to all of our OnRivet customers.


The House That SHE Built

The Utah Chapter of the NAHB Professional Women in Building and the Utah Home Builders Association in a joint effort is designing and constructing the first all-women-built home that will be showcased in the 2021 Utah Valley Parade of Homes.

The House That SHE Built is located in the Wander community in Saratoga Springs. The home is approximately 3,200 square feet of living space including a finished basement that was designed and built for family functionality, from a women’s perspective. All stages of this project will highlight and utilize skilled tradeswomen, women professionals, and women-owned companies.

Proceeds from the sale of the home will go to scholarships, women-focused charities, and future projects like this one. If you want to find out more about this amazing project, how to donate, and see fun pictures of the progress being made check out their website at https://www.utahpwb.com/the-house-that-she-built/.

Women In Construction Week 2021

Women in Construction Week was founded by the National Association of Women in Construction. NAWIC was created in 1953 by a group of women to create a support network for other women in the industry. There are 120 chapters and over 4,000 members of the organization. The focus of Women in Construction Week is to promote women as a viable component of the construction industry. WIC provides us the chance to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in construction. We will be celebrating some of the amazing women making strides in the construction industry so stayed tuned next week as we highlight some of their projects.
