April 2022 Fundraising Update
The Spencer Home Foundation was established to support the on-going needs of the residents of the Kenneth E. Spencer Memorial Home. Funds raised allow the Foundation to purchase items not provided by the Provincial Government.
Our current goal is to continue fundraising to reach $150,000 to purchase 100 dressers and night stands for resident rooms in Section One to replace aging (49 years old) furniture. To date, we have raised approximately $35,000 of the $150,000. In 2015/2016, the Foundation successfully raised enough funds to purchase the same for Section Two.
We need your help to reach this goal!!!
You may donate in memory of a loved one by sending a cheque in the mail, drop of your donation to the Business Office or donating online to the Spencer Home Foundation at the Canada Helps website.
