It is our sincere pleasure to be reaching out to you to request support for The Brenda Strafford Foundation’s ‘Going Places’ bus campaign.
The Brenda Strafford Foundation is raising money for accessible buses to facilitate recreational outings in the local community… Going places that create life-enriching experiences and enable our senior residents to live life to the fullest.
Our goal is to have two new buses to be shared by our Calgary locations by March 2020!
As a charitable organization, we are committed to achieving excellent standards that promote, enhance and transform people’s quality of life. It is our desire to provide outstanding care to seniors, support research that brings evidence and new knowledge for innovative older adult care and services, assist those in crisis through our compassionate support, and help the poor receive health care when they need it.
Our senior residents will receive the direct benefit of having our own bus. There will be more social outings, which will help to reduce social isolation and the feelings of loneliness. As well as flexibility in scheduling bus trips, taking away the reliance on third-party transport operators.
We are very excited to be embarking on our ‘Going Places’ bus campaign. We invite you to read the attached request for funding and contact us if you have any questions. We also invite you to come and tour one of our three manors in Calgary, so you can see firsthand the people whose lives you will be directly impacting.
