Dawson Creek 'Better at Home'

Thank You Dawson Co-op!

October 1, 2019

What a great time we had, with the folks from Co-op at the BBQ on Sept 21st. The Dawson Co-op generously provided everything we needed to operate the BBQ and we got to keep the proceeds for the Better at Home program.
Thanks Co-op - and thanks to our volunteers and to the folks who braved the crazy winds to enjoy a burger or hot dog.

August 28, 2019

Her dissertation follows rural senior women, focusing on their capabilities rather than obstacles. A very inspiring video with some excellent information and a positive message.
Thank you Angela, for recommending this video. :)

They put on an amazing fundraiser event, with international food, dancing, and the wonderful music of 'Earth, Wind, and Snow'. Today Sai Kaethia Addu and Bhaegav Bhalgamadia, representing the class, came to the office to donate $2,000.00 to the Better at Home program.
