Brookswood Denture Clinic Donated $5,000 to the Langley Senior Resources Society on January 23, 2019
Langley, BC –Brookswood Denture Clinic, in Langley, BC, donated $5,000 to the Langley Senior Resources Society (LSRS). This is the 5th year the denture clinic has donated funds to the Society. The money was donated at a cheque presentation on January 23rd, 2019 @ 11:30am at the senior centre. The donation will go to financially support the Outreach Program offered at the Senior Recreation and Resources Centre.
Philanthropy aside, Brookswood Denture Clinic has always been a prominent member of the community that generously contributes to its senior population. The sole purpose of making the sizable charitable contribution is not to attain media limelight but to set an example to other businesses that serve seniors. The Society is again losing a major donor partner, United Way. It’s imperative the community at large get involved in any way they can.
“Isolation can lead to mental, physical, and emotional deterioration, and seniors are highly vulnerable to these conditions. This Outreach Program helps seniors to improve the quality of their lives, and to live with dignity, hope, social security, and meaning” said Janice McTaggart, Director of Outreach Services at Langley Senior Resources Society.
LSRS has launched many initiatives for senior members, and the ‘Outreach Program’ is one that has proven to be successful, changing lives every day. The Outreach Program helps senior members, as well as their families to stay connected with the community, and to be empowered and independent.
“We take great pride in financially supporting the ‘Outreach Program’ at the senior centre. This is our 5th year donating $5,000 to the program. The community needs to know that Langley Senior Resources Society is a not for profit organization, they are independent of the City and Township of Langley. The Outreach Program at the senior centre is vital and connects people to their community. I have personally witnessed the results. Some of my patients tell me stories about how the staff and volunteers in Outreach have literally saved their lives.” Darren Sailer, Denturist at Brookswood Denture Clinic.
“Everybody deserves to live a happy and healthy life; we can all do our part” Colin Harty, Denturist at Brookswood Denture Clinic.
