As you may remember, last August we had the opportunity to participate in the 7th Annual Canada Life Charity Softball Tournament. Canada Life matched our pledges for the tournament and we were able to raise enough money to purchase a brand new van!
The van will be used by our Emmaus Day program. And they will definitely put it to good use; taking it grocery shopping, delivering cookies, swimming, bowling, etc. We are so grateful to Canada Life for making this purchase possible!
On Friday, we welcomed several representatives from Canada Life into our community to celebrate the purchase of the van. It was wonderful to give them a glimpse into our life here at L’Arche – and to share some amazing baked goods of course!
We are also pleased to announce the Canada Life has chosen L’Arche Greater Vancouver to participate in their 2012 tournament on July 27th at Softball City in Surrey! Please stay tuned for more details…
Thank you again Canada Life for your support!
Our new van!
