~ PROJECT: PAVING PATHWAYS ~
‘Project: Paving Pathways’ is our fundraising effort, launched to coincide with the introduction of our new brand to raise the funds necessary to upgrade our facilities and resources in the two key areas identified by the society in 2003:
The first need identified that, despite the current facility at 555 Fuller Avenue having served us well since 1953, the Fuller location is now simply too old, too small and too far beyond repair or renovation to continue to adequately serve the needs of our people. While satellite facilities have been brought into service, they too suffer from significant inefficiencies and inadequacies.
The second need identified is to offer opportunities to those we serve for independent living in our community. Low rental accommodation in our region is in short supply for those most in need.
To date, a fund development committee has been formed and has raised close to $500,000 toward the target goal of 1.5 million dollars, the sum identified by the society necessary to achieve the needed upgrades.
Beginning in 2013, with the help of media partners like 103.9 The Juice and the Capital News, together with the efforts and commitment of various private organizations, businesses and individuals in the community, we will be launching a series of fundraising efforts to bridge and ultimately close the gap towards achieving our target.
Moving forward, we will provide updates on our fundraising efforts and initiatives in our News & Events section.
In addition to supporting our own fundraising efforts with your cash donations and volunteer time, you can also help us by holding your own fund raising events for ‘Project: Paving Pathways’!
