Having just recently acquired ownership of the facilities, one non-profit retirement residence is already planning on making room for more, as they kick off fundraising for a major expansion.
Filling up the Campbell’s Bay Recreation Association, the Friends of St. Joseph’s Manor (FSJM) announced their next step for providing benchmark senior living with the plan to build an additional 10 rooms at a wine and cheese gala on June 14.
“Our goal has been and will continue to be providing a quality service to the seniors in our communities, and this is why we intend to pursue a 10-room addition,” said Colleen Larivière, director of the FSJM, at the event.
The current initiative, starting with the social last Thursday night, sees the FSJM seeking to fundraise a quarter of a million dollars. The estimated cost of the addition currently sits at $955,020.
While they entered the evening with a pre-raised amount – starting with $45,000 towards their goal – the group were excited to share that they would be received another significant investment. Promutuel Insurance made a large donation, adding $10,000 to their efforts.
