The SJAF Foundation board is grateful for the generous support of many donors and friends which directly enriches the lives of residents at St Joseph’s at Fleming. During the past year, the Foundation received many gifts including a $10,000 bequest, a $14,000 donation of Enbridge shares and a $500 gift from Royal Bank (the 10th gift of that nature on behalf of a former bank employee and current volunteer).
In 2016, the Foundation donated $50,000 to the home which was used to complete balcony repairs, assist in the development of the new outdoor Resident Sensory Accessibility Path, and the purchase of new lobby furniture upon completion of the front entrance renovations.
A significant highlight of the year was a celebration to honour the legacy of Bill Connolly, a founding board member of the St Joseph’s at Fleming Foundation who passed away in 2012. A portrait of Bill was placed in the lobby of SJAF as a fitting tribute to his dedicated service.
In 2016, we welcomed Chuck Piercy, a retired banker and involved community member to the Foundation board.
We look forward to upcoming events in 2017, including a rescheduled Euchre Party in the New Year.
