The Glacier View Lodge (GVL) Legacy of Light campaign deadline has been extended to Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day.
“We invite our community to support of Glacier View Lodge and the Legacy of Light fund,” said GVL director of resident lifestyle and community programs Liz Friis. “How better to show your love for family and friends, or to honour the seniors in our community, than by your ‘gift of love’ to Glacier View Lodge?”
The campaign has raised $13,200 so far.
“For others in our community who noticed the tower of Christmas lights and star shining from above the Valley, know that the lights, a symbol of Legacy of Light campaign, shone in remembrance of many people who were dearly loved and in support of the needs of seniors living in our care community,” sdaid Friis.
Now in its 34th year, GVL’s “Legacy of Light” fund (formerly Book of Lights), initiated and supported by the Soroptimist International of Courtenay, brings awareness to a project that will give a legacy of comfort to lodge residents. This year the project is to update the main living area and replace the well-used furniture.
