First Service Residential have been the driving force and coordinator of a yearly fundraiser for Canuck Place since 2014. In that time, they have raised over $400,000 for this amazing program that provides assistance to 750 families across the province, with the help of 600 volunteers.
Through First Services Residential, Canstar has been a supporter for several years.
With the opening of the Dave Lede facility in Abbotsford, Canuck Place has embraced the needs of the residents of the Fraser Valley with the hospice, and patient and family support programs.
On April 9th, Canstar was honoured to be one of the First Service Residential family of donors that toured the facility and learned more about the staff and services. As an annual donor, we have been to the Vancouver hospice many times, but this was our first visit to this beautiful purpose-built home.
Our thanks to Nicole Bonneau and Deborah Davison for their hospitality and gracious patience with all the questions we asked. And for the cookies. Especially for the cookies😊
