FirstService Residential B.C. Raises $65,500 for the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice
VANCOUVER, B.C. – MARCH. 7, 2016 – FirstService Residential, Metro Vancouver’s leading residential property management company, raised $65,500 in donations for the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice during its annual donation campaign for the hospice. The donation amount raised this year more than doubles the gift raised during last year’s campaign. This past holiday season, FirstService Residential, the strata management leader, teamed up with more than fifty local vendors used by its strata corporation clients to raise money for the Children’s Hospice, supporting local children with life-threatening conditions. The donation was presented to the Canuck Place team by representatives of FirstService Residential and its vendor partners.
“Canuck Place Children’s Hospice is grateful for the incredible generosity of FirstService Residential, their vendors and partners,” said Margaret McNeil, Chief Executive Officer of Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. “The 2016 holiday campaign is a fundraising achievement and doubled the gift amount of the previous year. This remarkable contribution will help ensure Canuck Place can continue to provide pediatric palliative care to children with life-threatening conditions and support the families who love them.”
To recognize the contribution, FirstService Residential sent a holiday e-card to its clients, more than 100,000 residents living in over 500 strata properties across Metro Vancouver. “We are humbled to see the support for the annual Canuck Place campaign more than double,” said Scott Douglas, President of FirstService Residential in British Columbia. “The Children’s Hospice is a true symbol of hope and community building. The relentless work of the Canuck Place team to make a difference in the lives of children in need and their families is an inspiration to us all.”
