100-plus women care about dementia care home in Nanaimo

100-plus Women Who Care Mid-Island present $12,900 to Eden Gardens

Eden Gardens received a gift that demonstrated that community members care.

The group 100-plus Women Who Care Mid-Island chose the dementia care home as the most recent recipient of a significant donation. The 100-plus women presented $12,900 to Eden Gardens.

Toni Wheeler, executive director of Eden Gardens, said in a press release that the care home is thrilled to have been recognized and chosen by 100-plus Women Who Care.

“This donation will support our new home and will allow us to continue to offer the essential compassionate care programs we offer our elders,” she said.

100-plus Women Who Care Mid-Island meets four times a year with members pooling their money to give to charity. Three registered charities are shortlisted, there’s discussion about the efforts and needs of those groups, and then a vote determines the funding recipient.

Leanne Kelly, founder of the local chapter, said in the press release that 100-plus Women Who Care are delighted with the choice of Eden Gardens.

“It’s so exciting to see where our dollars are going. We feel that Eden Gardens will be able to use our donation wisely,” Kelly said.
