My Donor's Story

Donor Don Vallee shares his story about why
Columbus Residence is important to him

I have been a member of the Knights of Columbus since 1951 and the Knights of Columbus has now reached 129 years of service, mainly in chairty, promoting unity and fraternity.

The Vancouver Council 1081 founded Columbus Residence 21 years ago. Many years of dedicated work and generous donations poured into the project well before the first resident admission in October 1990. The result was, and continues to be, fantastic!

To further support Columbus Residence, I joined the Columbus Long Term Care Society in 2003. As a member, I enjoy attending the Annual General Meeting where I am updated on the years' activities as well as attending the special events where I have the opportunity to meet new people and visit old friends.

I can honestly say that this facility has been my favourite charitable organization over the years and I extend my very best wishes for the future.
