Spreading The Holiday Spirit

A Time To Give Back!

As the holiday season is upon us, we are all trying to get into the holiday spirit.  This of course has us thinking of giving.  John Canning & Co. is doing our part and spreading the holiday spirit through donations this holiday season.

We are spreading the holiday spirit and giving in multi ways.

Donating Surgical Masks:

We are asking for your help in reaching our Goal Of Donating 10,000 surgical masks.

Holiday Mask Donation

During these unusual times, so many organizations are in need of life-saving PPE to help make our way through the COVID-19 pandemic.  We feel by donating surgical masks to some of those organizations in need is the perfect way to give back this holiday season.

The masks we are donating are:

    • Made in America- The masks are designed, developed and produced here in America, which also allows us to support our businesses in the United States.
    • FDA-Listed "Surgical Masks", Medical grade with 99.2 % bacterial and particulate filtration down to 0.3 microns.

Every new follower we get on any of our social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), means we donate another mask towards our goal.  So, tell your colleagues, preservation friends or anyone that might benefit from our expertise and the information we share, that now is the perfect time to follow us on social media.

Follow Us Now And Get Us Closer To Our Goal

Donating to the APT Scholarship Fund:

We also decided to give a donation to the Association for Preservation Technology (APT) organization. John Canning & Co. has been a long-time member, supporter and participant in their conferences. The APT is the premier cross-disciplinary organization dedicated to promoting the best technology for conserving historic structure and their settings. Since their mission of advancing appropriate traditional and new technologies to care for, protect, and promote the longevity of the built environment and to cultivate the exchange of knowledge throughout the international community aligns to the work we do, we thought it would be fitting.   APT offers scholarships for students from all areas of study in the field of historic preservation and conservation. 

We hope you see this holiday spirit decision as a good investment in the future and a way to continue the preservation/conservation of the historic structures for all to cherish and enjoy. We at Canning feel blessed to be able to continue to do the work we do in historic preservation, conservation, restoration, replication and the sacred design fields and to have such great people, companies and organizations to work with in the process.  

APT Scholarship

Whether near or far the holiday spirit is around us and still can be as strong as years past. Let the essence and magic of the holidays that is found in decorations, baking, music and everything else that makes the holidays special, help fill our hearts with the holiday spirit and cheer that is so needed this year.

From all of us at John Canning & Co., we wish you good tidings for the Happiest of Holidays and a Very Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone all the best. Stay Safe and Healthy.
