The generosity of the Peace region is outstanding. Since our volunteer group was founded, seniors have experienced that kindness firsthand.
The Friends of the Grande Spirit Foundation was established in 2001 in response to a donation made by the estate of a resident, and the change in operating assistance by the government from full coverage to costs for basic services. The Friends of the Foundation saw an opportunity to enhance the lifestyle in the homes by donations, grants and fundraising. The Friends of the Grande Spirit Foundation was established to oversee the administration of any funds donated or raised through fundraising activities.
