While Thelma and Arthur’s donations to Street Health were triggered by this connection, the pressing need for Street Health’s services became more apparent when they moved into the downtown core. “We’ve lived downtown for 13 years now and we still see people everyday who are suffering and don’t even know where they are. They need help that goes beyond receiving some change for their next meal. We’re so glad that Street Health combines the nursing and mental health components. This is the support that is needed so desperately.”
“We were raised in families that lived by the philosophy that it is better to give than to receive. We still believe this, so we are pleased to provide ongoing support to Street Health and to a downtown-area school. It is reassuring for individuals to know that there is someone out there who cares.”
Caring donors make a difference in the lives of many. Thank you to Thelma, Arthur and all Street Health donors.
