Residents of Nanaimo care facility raise money for wildfire efforts

Seniors at Dufferin Place complex care facility raise $500 in a July 20 hotdog sale

Moved by the devastation caused by summer wildfires throughout B.C., seniors at Dufferin Place complex care facility in Nanaimo held a hotdog sale July 20 to benefit victims.

The residents conceived the idea and proposed it at a monthly meeting and staff assisted in making it happen.

On the day of the sale, staff from the care facility and Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, as well as family members, donated $4 for a hotdog, drink and chips.

While the sale saw $344 in funds raised, the residents also donated $156 to bring the total up to $500, which was donated to the Red Cross for its wildfire relief efforts.
