Thank you to the Legion Branch #289

January 13, 2018

As a registered charity serving older adults in Tsawwassen, KinVillage relies on the generous support of the community to help enhance the lives of its residents, clients and members.

Tsawwassen Royal Canadian Legion Branch 289’s recent presentation of a $3,000 cheque to KinVillage brings its total contributions to more than $20,000 over the past 8 years.  The Legion’s financial assistance has allowed KinVillage to purchase a wide range of equipment and furnishings – from seating comfortable for KinVillage’s Care Home residents, an able walker for its Rehab program,, outdoor garden tables, a barbecue, and TVs – to this year’s acquisition of a specialty mattress designed to prevent injury and and promote comfort and safety for Care Home residents at risk of developing pressure ulcers.  All off these purchases, made possibly through the Tsawwassen Legion’s continued generosity, benefit those who call KinVillage home, and their visitors.

As always, we are grateful to the Legion for its contributions – when we identify a need, it is there to help!
