Alternate Choice Makes Donation to a Residential House

Alternate Choice Makes Donation to a Residential House

In December, Community Living Burlington's Deerwood House received a generous donation of $5,000 from Alternate Choice in Burlington. Donations like these help our organization continue to fulfill our mission of enriching the quality of life for the people we support. 

Oftentimes, our limited financial budget restricts our organization from making renovations and additions to our residential homes. $4,000 of the $5,000 will be used for renovations at Deerwood House, and the other $1,000 will provide full and meaningful community activities for the residents. 

A big thank-you to Alternate Choice and Gary Kirkwood for your support of Community Living Burlington.
