Origin at Longwood’s Team and Community Members Dedication to its Spirit of Giving Program Raised Over $6,700 This December
Residents and team members from the Origin at Longwood community had a very successful December by raising over $6,700 for 5 charities and hope to keep the donations flowing throughout 2022 through Origin’s Spirit of Giving program.
During December Origin at Longwood’s community members setup shop in the Vancouver Island Market to sell their hand-crafted items they had been making over the past year in our knitting and crocheting group, painting classes and other Original Expressions programs. This included knitted and crocheted clothing, holiday cards, ornaments, paintings, and other hand-crafted items. Thanks to this initiative our community members were able to raise over $5,100 towards the following charities:
Origin at Longwood’s team members also wanted to give back, and in lieu of secret Santa they decided to raise money for a family of 7 through the Christmas Angels program setup by Volunteer Nanaimo. They were able to raise over $900 and received an additional $700 from Origin’s head office.
Origin’s Spirit of Giving program takes place is year-round, and we hope to keep raising money for great causes every month. Keep your eye open for us at local craft fairs and trade shows, among other community events. Remember, those in need – need help all year!
