Today we recognized our Neighbours Helping Neighbours crew that did an amazing job of raising $3,178towards our Canada Life Challenge. Each of our homes and day programs were asked to do what they could to fundraise towards a new L’Arche vehicle. In total, L’Arche Greater Vancouver received $24,338.38 that will be matched by Canada Life through their Canada Life Softball Charity Tournament in which we also participated.
Neighbours Helping Neighbours is an outreach program of L’Arche Greater Vancouver. They are an enthusiastic team of people with and without development disabilities who assist seniors and others with physical disabilities in our neighbourhood with gardening, lawn maintenance and other simple maintenance tasks.
