Rotarians are looking for doors to open — and improve.
The Comox Rotary Club wants to help open doors for people with physical disabilities.
Through a grant available from the federal government Rotarians will improve the accessibility of buildings in the Comox Valley for those with special needs. A few of the eligible improvements include the renovation and retrofitting of buildings like constructing interior or exterior ramps, raising and lowering sinks or counters, improving lighting or even building and accessible washroom.
“ We’ll provide the labour and the Federal government will provide the financing” said Garry Steele, Comox Rotary president. “It will improve the lives of many people in the community and our club has always enjoyed getting hands-on with projects so this is a real win-win for everybody.”
Comox Rotarians will even do the paperwork for the applicants, helping to pen the requests for the grant from the Federal Enabling Accessibility Fund.
If you or someone you know would like help improving their accessibility, contact Comox Rotary Club president Garry Steele before Sept. 25 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
