100 Men Who Care Present $10,500 Donation to Greenwoods

In their inaugural meeting this past month, the men who gathered raised $10,500 for the Greenwoods Eldercare Society with funds earmarked for a family communications room where residents can connect with families via video conference. Over eighty men of the 105 members gathered at their first meeting at the Harbour House Hotel to select a local charity to support. The randomly selected nominations were from Greenwoods Elder Care, The Salt Spring Island Rowing Club, and the Salt Spring Island Soccer Association. In a close vote, Greenwoods Elder Care gained the most votes.

100 Men Who Care have now shared those funds with Aletha Humphreys, Executive Director at Greenwoods who accepted the cheque for $10,300 on behalf of the board, staff, and residents of Greenwood’s Elder Care. The money was raised by the newly formed 100 Men Who Care, Salt Spring Island, and will go to refurbishment of the activity room.

    Thank you to the 100 Saltspring island men who care! Your choice of a charity like Greenwood’s Eldercare Society is deeply appreciated and will support our aspirations to create a space that acknowledges our residents and families. A place to quietly visit and a place to stay in touch with off island family and friends. This gift is immeasurable for Greenwood’s and supports our goals to enhance our home and quality of life for SSI residents of Greenwood’s.
