Core Value: Proudly Serving Our Communities
Her personal motto is “a small gesture can make a big difference,” and Carlie Jones takes that ideal seriously, volunteering with community organizations such as Aboriginal Day and Pride Parades in Vancouver. With her infectious smile and enthusiasm, Carlie’s passion for giving back shines through when she speaks about her work with Girl Guides. She says that her parents instilled in her the drive to help others as much as possible. “Mentoring Girl Guides is a super cool experience,” she said. “Being a girl at that age is tough, and giving them an outlet where we focus on helping our community together is really rewarding to me.” With many international employees, Carlie sees her Safeway work family as a surrogate for those new Canadians. “For some it’s not just a new job, it’s introducing them to a new country, customs, and how things work.” “My Sobeys is a Safeway and it has been a great place to work, to grow, to develop, and to meet new people,” she said.
