$3500 cheque presented by BC Interior Community Foundation President Hugh Fallis to Brenda Prevost Executive Director of the Centre for Seniors Information. These funds, provided through the Kamloops Seniors Citizens Housing Society Fund, will be used for the purchase of seniors mobility equipment.
BC Interior Community Foundation President Hugh Fallis presents Kamloops Hospice Association with a cheque for the interest from their fund. An endowment fund is a great way to ensure operational monies for a charitable organization are available every year. Hospice Executive Director Wendy Marlowe (far right) and Graham Davis, Chairman (far left), along with Hospice Staff & Volunteers are also pictured.
On February 28, 2018, the BC Interior Community Foundation presented the New Life Community (Kamloops) with a cheque for $3,889.00 for the purchase of electric hand dryers. The use of electric dryers rather than paper towels will reduce operational costs by nearly $1,500 per year while providing a more sustainable and hygienic option for New Life’s clients.
New Life Community (previously New Life Mission) has been providing outreach and poverty relief services in Kamloops since 1980. The funds for this project were sourced through the generosity of The Stollery Charitable Foundation which was founded by Robert and Shirley Stollery in 1994 and supports important charitable and community building projects in Kamloops and Edmonton.
What a wonderful present senior Kamloops resident Tina Cole received over the Holidays in 2018 – as a mobility impaired senior, she was housebound after her previous mobility scooter died and was not able to be repaired. Through the Kamloops Senior Citizens Housing Society Fund the BC Interior Community Foundation was able to provide Tina with a new scooter to help her get around.
