Fraser Valley REALTORS® donate $12,000 to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Abbotsford

You’ve put smiles on a lot of faces! Earlier this month, Board President Gopal Sahota presented a $12,000 cheque on behalf of Fraser Valley REALTORS® to the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice – Dave Lede House in Abbotsford. The donation will be used to purchase a Pedicraft Canopy Bed, which is specially designed for children with safety and comfort in mind, equipped with adjustable mattress options while also able to support necessary medical equipment.

The Canuck Place Children’s Hospice was established in 1995 and offers pediatric palliative care for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families which includes medical respite care, pain and symptom management, expressive therapies, end-of-life care, as well as grief and loss counseling – all at no cost to families.

“Our region is growing, and the demand for specialized care is greater than ever,” said Gopal Sahota, President of the Fraser Valley Real Estate. “Fraser Valley REALTORS® are proud to support Canuck Place and the incredible work they do providing a home and care for children and their families in the most difficult of situations.”

Over the last year, Canuck Place has cared for more than 715 children and families with over 40% of patients residing in the Fraser Valley.

“We’re so thankful for the support of partners like the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board,” said Canuck Place CEO, Margaret McNeil. “This generous contribution will directly impact Canuck Place families as we expand our services at Dave Lede House this year. Together we will be there for families in need here in the Fraser Valley and all across BC.”
