Thanks to a generous community and a lot of dedicated volunteers!
We have big news! Our wonderful donors have given over $12 million to help build the new, larger, safe Dundas Manor Long-Term Care Home!
“This is another exciting milestone in the Expanding the Circle of Compassionate Care Campaign. $12 million is a lot of money and our small but mighty community deserves all the credit,” says Managing Director, Kristen Casselman. “We are so grateful for everyone’s support.”
As the festive season approaches, we will all have much more to celebrate as the general contractor who will build the new home and the construction schedule are confirmed.
“We have been working at this for ten years now and we are really closing in on some major milestones of the project. It is so rewarding to start to see the fruits of our labour – and that of many other volunteers – pay off,” explains Lisa Little, Dundas Manor Board Chair. “We will have our ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony by the end of this year. We may have to trade our spades for snow shovels, but we are determined to dig into the ground, even if it’s frozen! Please keep an eye out in the local papers and social media for the date as our entire community is invited to celebrate with us.”
“Thank you so much to our community for your generosity thus far, and for your patience as we navigate our way through the many necessary steps and processes involved in such a large scale and essential project – the new Dundas Manor. We look forward to sharing and celebrating many more milestones with you in the coming months,” sums up Dundas Manor CEO Cholly Boland.
