FirstService Residential Raises $30,000 for the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice
FirstService Residential, the leading residential property management company in Greater Vancouver, has raised more than $30,000 in donations for the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. This past holiday season, the property management leader worked with twenty-five of the top 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 Canuck Place by representatives of FirstService Residential and its vendors.
“As B.C.’s recognized pediatric palliative care provider, we are here to help children and families of Canuck Place live in the moment and savour life together,” said Margaret McNeil, Canuck Place CEO. “The possibility of our work comes, in part, through caring corporations like FirstService Residential. We are grateful for their investment and that of their vendor partners to support B.C.’s children with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them.”
To recognize the donation, FirstService Residential sent a holiday e-card to its clients, represented by more than 100,000 residents living in more than 450 strata properties across Greater Vancouver. “We are honoured to support the exceptional work at Canuck Place,” said Scott Douglas, FirstService Residential B.C. President. “The tireless effort of its team to make a difference in the lives of children and their families is remarkable. The hospice is a true symbol of hope and community.”
