As many of you know two homes in Scenic Acres were severely damaged by fire back in August. We have learned one of the homeowners provides caregiver services for two special needs adults who lived in one of the homes. These two individuals’ entire possessions were destroyed in the fire and they did not have tenant insurance to cover their losses. Fortunately the homeowner and the two special needs adults are living in temporary furnished accommodations until the Scenic Acres house can be rebuilt.
SACA representatives have set up a bank account with Servus Credit Union in Bowness so residents can donate funds to purchase bedroom furniture, clothes and other personal items for these two special needs adults. This account is called “Scenic Acres Fire Relief” and will be open only for 90 days, with all monies donated to go to the fire victims. The funds collected will be used to purchase gift cards at major retail outlets: Pennington’s, TanJay for clothes, The Brick for furniture, WalMart for housewares and personal items. We’re hoping you can help out in giving them a great Christmas present!
To donate you can:
E-transfer your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheques made payable to “Scenic Acres Fire Relief” to be mailed or dropped off to either the SACA Office (8825 Scurfield Drive NW, Calgary AB T3L 2A8) or the Bowness Servus Credit Union Bowness Branch (125, 6404 Bowness Road NW, Calgary, AB T3B 0E7).
