It costs a lot to maintain homes of our size (Sherbrooke alone is over 240,000 square feet!) This year, the Sherbrooke Foundation has been asked for more than $600,000 to replace capital equipment and furnishings that have outlived their useful life; to renovate and improve our homes at Sherbrooke and Central Haven. That money doesn’t come from government sources. Capital funds for both our homes are are raised by the Sherbrooke Foundation.
Renewing joy! is the Sherbrooke Foundation’s campaign to enhance full and abundant life for the people who live at Sherbrooke and Central Haven. The Renewing joy! campaign is refreshing our homes with new, upgraded equipment and home improvements. The goal is enhanced well-being and joy! for our residents.
Here are a few of the current needs being addressed and requiring funding…
At Central Haven, because of donors like you (with gifts large, small and in-between), in the last year we’ve been able to initiate some wonderful projects, now underway, which are renewing our home: replace the obsolete Nurse Call system; upgrade our hallway lighting; install ceiling track lifts in our residents rooms; improve the floor care in our residents’ rooms with a new scrubber machine; upgrade the wireless internet for all; support residents’ physical well-being with a new arm-bike and stand; renew essential building needs like a new water heater, roof repairs, flooring.
Our residents are benefiting with greater safety, comfort, freedom of movement, independence and more. These are all part of quality of life. They support our residents’ joy!
Your gift – regardless of size – will make a difference by combining with many others to help us accomplish these projects! If you’d like to know more about Renewing Joy! or other initiatives, please give us a call or send us an email!
