Coming Together to Help Others
Residents of The Summerhill, The Mulberry, the Staff, and Pacific Arbour Retirement Communities have shown their support for all those affected by the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti. So many Haitians were left without food, water, shelter, or medical support. In a coordinated effort with the Canadian Red Cross; the residents of The Summerhill came together to donate an amazing $6600, The Mulberry residents with $7107, and the staff contributed $1125. All these donations were matched by Pacific Arbour Retirement Communities, as well as, an additional $10,000. Just two weeks after the disaster, the Red Cross was delivered cheques totaling $39,664 for the Haitian relief effort. The Canadian Government has offered to match all these donations.
