Years ago, Colin Noble’s father left a major donation to a local charity — and in recognition, a wooden plaque was placed on the wall.
What happened to the plaque is a lesson in the power of giving. As the agency’s work impacted Kamloops, the plaque was made smaller and smaller —- symbolic of how donations can help fill the holes in the community fabric.
“In 30 years, the plaque is now one tenth the size it was originally, the Kamloops man said. “I wonder what size it will be in another 30 years and at what point does it disappear forever?”
“Buildings crumble, benches wear out, equipment becomes obsolete, cures are found, orphanages disappear and services get used up. But for those who want their name to live on forever and have their name remembered, community foundations create the perfect solution.
