Buy a hammer, build a community

Home Depot fundraiser supports Willow Point Supportive Living Society in Campbell River

The Home Depot Canada Foundation’s purpose is to give back to communities it serves by supporting affordable housing and building strong communities for Canadians in need. This year, Campbell River’s Home Depot Canada store has chosen Willow Point Supportive Living Society as its partner to benefit from its fundraiser.

From May 30 to July 3, funds are raised by customers purchasing a $2 “Paper Hammer” at the checkouts in the store. All funds raised will go to Willow Point Supportive Living Society.

Willow Point Supportive Living Society is a totally self-supporting non-profit charitable society that owns and operates a complex at 142 Larwood Road. Its mandate is ‘to provide a range of affordable housing to seniors which would tend to prevent, shorten or delay facility placement by supporting those that wish to maintain an independent life style in the environment of their choice’.

The Supportive Living Society appreciates donations to cover the cost of ‘extras’ that help make living independently easier such as grab bars, levered handles on taps and door knobs, raised toilets, walk-in tub-to-shower conversions, raised gardens and to address any other accessibility issues that come up. Donations are gratefully accepted with tax receipts given for any donations of $20 or more. Please visit the society’s website at www.wpsls.com for more.
