Sleep Country Canada Donates 110 Beds
April 13, 2010 – Sleep Country Canada generously gave 110 nearly-new beds today with a huge truckload of bed frames and mattresses for Victoria Cool Aid Society’s supportive housing residents, delivered free of charge by Transource Transportation. The beds are from the Whistler Athletes Village and are part of a sizeable Olympics legacy being left to the community in the form of supportive housing.
Also, under construction at this time is the Olympic Vista supported housing building on Carey Road in Saanich. The exciting Olympic Vista project will create 36 new units of supportive housing for seniors who are homeless or at risk from re-assembled modular housing from the Olympic Athletes Village. Like all Cool Aid housing, staffing will be on site 24/7.
The new housing is scheduled to open in Spring 2011.
