To everyone who heeded the call and donated to the Canada Helps Great Canadian Giving Challenge - THANK YOU all!

Together we raised $2,885 of new donations during the month of June! Whether you donated five dollars or five hundred, every dollar counts and every gesture of support brings us that much closer to our summer goal of $275,000.

It may seem impossible and out of reach, but nothing is out of reach if we continue to pull together in service to island need, to community need, and to personal need; because when we have a strong community culture, we are all the beneficiaries in good times and bad.

Twenty new homes on the land called Rainbow Ridge will house individuals and families of all ages, making us stronger by providing secure year-round rentals on Cortes for the younger generation who cannot afford to buy in at today’s high prices. They bring vitality, excitement, trades. They bring energy and hope.

It will also allow space for more seniors to live; those who know the island, its moods and seasons, those who provide perspective and wisdom.

Each of you who contributed has helped this dream have a chance of becoming reality, because as we know:

It takes a community to raise a village.

Thank you from your Housing Committee
