Forty three years ago Knollcrest Lodge opened its doors and welcomed 14 residents in the first two weeks. Since then it has grown, expanded and evolved into one of the region’s leading Long Term Care homes. Knollcrest’s high quality of care has touched the lives of hundreds of residents and their families.
We sincerely thank you for your generous donations throughout the years. Your generosity has assisted us in retrofitting our home, including new front doors and two new state of the art therapeutic tubs, all of which added to the comfort, safety and security for our residents.
As we reflect on the past and look to the future, it would appear that we have come full circle. Our original CAMPAIGN FOR COMFORT took place in the late nineties to raise funds to replace resident beds and furnishings. So it is not surprising that the beds, dressers and chairs [some of which are much older] are due for replacement to ensure our residents are comfortable.
CAMPAIGN FOR COMFORT – PHASE TWO, our 5 year goal is:
*78 new automated beds, 32 dressers, 78 bedside tables and 40 chairs
However, to do this we need your support. Your donation will help us achieve our goal and contribute to the well-being of others. A good night sleep, resting in a comfortable chair, or reclining in an electric chair, is something each of us can relate to.
Some of you may choose to make larger donations that could underwrite the cost of a bed at $1,700, a dresser at $1,000, a chair at $500-$1,000, or a bedside table for $250. Please be assured that any donation towards comfortable, quality furniture will be greatly appreciated.
The enclosed reply form and label is supplied for your convenience. If you have any questions about this campaign, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 519-595-8121 ext 102 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your ongoing support and interest in the care of our residents is greatly appreciated.
