This year L’Arche has been chosen as one of two charities that will benefit from Canada Life’s Charity Softball Tournament on July 25. Monies raised through the tournament will be used to purchase a new truck for L’Arche’s Neighbours Helping Neighbours program. This new truck will offer more room – which means the Neighbours Helping Neighbours crew can accommodate another person as they cut lawns, provide yard maintenance and do other chores for seniors and people with physical disabilities in Burnaby, South Vancouver and New Westminster. The Neighbours Helping Neighbours crew is made up of individuals with developmental disabilities and their supervisor. Since their customers are people who have fixed incomes, they provide this service as “neighbours”, without expectation of payment.

Canada Life will match donations up to $20,000 if they are received before July 25.
