The Cool Aid Society has a new home for its programs that helps people with mental health or addiction problems find work, stay in shape, and get computer, phone and Internet access.
On June 23, staff and volunteers with Cool Aid’s Resource Education Employment Support centre heard snapping noises overhead. They ran out of the office at 707 Johnson St. and moments later, the ceiling crashed down.
In the aftermath, Cool Aid issued a plea for temporary office space, while their former location is fixed. On Monday (July 11), the REES program moved in to 823 Broughton St., near the YM-YWCA.
Cool Aid is still hoping for donations of good office furniture, equipment, computers and printers to replace items damaged in the incident. Charitable receipts are available for non-cash donations.
To donate, please call Alan Rycroft at 250-414-4781.
