As if one and a half years of construction, and 4 months of no elevator wasn't enough of a challenge. On Saturday. our walk-in freezer bit the dust in a big way.
With an unexpected $11,000 in bills and a 2 week delay for parts to arrive, the little freezer on wheels was pressed into service. Needless to say this is a significant hit to our bottom line, yet we are proud that not one meal was missed. The men, who depend on us for their daily meals, continue to get quality,nutritious food.
Thank you to our cooks Lisel and Adam, along with the Support Care Workers, who have maintained the high standards of service our men so much appreciate.
It was an amazing gesture on the part of the team at PCL who also attended the game with the men. Heart warming to experience, given that our guys would normally be excluded from this exciting time in Toronto's sport history. To see them be given this opportunity was awesome.
Thank you to the entire team at PCL Construction.
The Good Neighbours’ Club was established in 1933 to respond to the needs of a large number of elderly, unemployed and homeless men, many of whom were veterans of the First World War. May Birchard, who founded the Club, was strongly motivated by strong principles, particularly the belief that “thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” She and the early supporters of the Good Neighbours’ Club believed that older men in need, and particularly veterans, ought to have access to the basics for a dignified life.
We continue to ensure that the values held and practiced by the Club’s staff and volunteers are based on the fundamental principles of integrity, fairness, service, excellence and respect for human dignity and potential.
