We’re just weeks away from our upcoming Longhouse Extreme Makeover, Oct. 18-20.
This initiative has truly been a volunteer-driven activity, with Investors Group leading the way.
We have commitments from many donors, sponsors in-kind, volunteers, tradespeople and suppliers who are – and will be – supporting our makeover beyond what we could have imagined.
But more is needed. If you are a tradesperson willing to get involved, please consider volunteering. If you own a business or are connected to a supplier, please consider how you might help.
And, of course, volunteers are still needed both before and during the makeover weekend.
Call 604-535-0015 for information.
