Hundreds of Paintings Donated

February 27, 2016 — Today, Cool Aid received one of the most interesting donations we have seen in several years – literally hundreds of artworks were delivered to Cool Aid’s newest apartment building, Mount Edwards Court, from a consortium of donors:

2 Burley Men help Cool Aid staff and residents move hundreds of paintings.

A donation of this magnitude is only possible with the cooperative efforts of hundreds of people, including the buyers whose purchases benefited Victoria Hospice.

These paintings will soon be adorning the walls of Cool Aid’s 15 buildings throughout the Capital Region, and some will be held in reserve for future buildings, such as Cottage Grove for seniors. Literally thousands of Cool Aid clients will benefit from the more beautiful surroundings where they access services every day.

A big thank you to the donors, Order of St. John, Victoria Hospice and 2 Burley Men for making the lives of some of Greater Victoria’s more vulnerable citizens a little brighter today – and every day. Your generosity is inspiring!
