Nelson CARES has reached its Room to Live fundraising goal of $690,000 to refurbish and maintain Ward Street Place, an affordable housing block in downtown Nelson.
“We could not have done this without the full support of the Nelson community. The community and the broader region have been with us every step of the way.” said Ron Little, chair of the Nelson CARES board. “
At Nelson CARES, we reach out to support the most vulnerable people in our community. Inviting the community to join us in refurbishing Ward Street Place clearly resonated with many people; it allowed them to get involved in a tangible way.
“We value this and want to say thank you to all who donated.”
The three-year campaign, was given a $15,000 boost from the City of Nelson, which matched funds raised during a fundraising gala at the Capitol Theatre in November.
The next Nelson CARES fundraiser, the Coldest Night of the Year walk for Homelessness, takes place on Feb. 24.
