Local company Canadian Forest Products (Canfor) donated lumber needed to repair the fire escape on one of the residences.
The Real Estate Foundation and Quesnel Community Foundation both contributed Grant money to help renovate Racing Road Residence to accommodate wheelchair access. Many changes and improvements were made to the home to allow easier access by those people dependent on wheelchairs.
Sunrise Rotary 2000 generously donated funds to purchase new tables and chairs for Red Bluff Hall. The Hall is a work project for our participants and used by the community at large.
In 2008 we approached several donors for help in purchasing a wheelchair accessible van. This created added independence for the people we serve in accessing community events, medical appointments and other travel within our area.
Enabling Accessibility Fund has approved the modification portion of the purchase while Quesnel Community Foundation made a cash grant available towards the purchase.
In economic times like these the recognition by companies and Foundations is paramount to our Association delivering the best service to those who need us the most.
As always we thank them for their continued support.
