White Rock Gets "A Little Bud"

Work is underway to turn the old KING KOIN laundry outlet in uptown White Rock, into the first cannabis store for the "city by the sea."

The Abbotsford based company is projecting an opening in May. "A Little Bud" will be the second legal cannabis store on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, joining INIDGENOUS BLOOM located in Semiahmoo Park (Surrey).

A week from this Saturday SOURCES White Rock will participate in a cross Canada fundraising event called the COLDEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR.

The name and the walk signify how some in our prosperous community may still be sleeping outside without the basic needs of life. When SOURCES director DAVID YOUNG appeared before White Rock council a couple of months back I was inspired to challenge my fellow councillors to a fundraising event amongst ourselves. The idea was to form a White Rock city council team and take to the phones and emails to solicit support for our team through pledges.

I even put a bounty on the internal contest, stating if any of my fellow councillors surpassed my fundraising total, I would offer up a pair of tickets to an upcoming Blue Frog show as a prize.

The idea was just to have some fun and raise money in our community for those less fortunate.

White Rock over the years has placed high on the list of top community fund-raisers. This year we need your help. To date we are only @ 54% of our goal.

Crash Cart Defibrillator Urgently Needed

We are emailing today to ask for your help in purchasing a Crash Cart Defibrillator, one of the most important pieces of equipment that is urgently needed at Peace Arch Hospital.

Having the best medical equipment really can be the difference between life and death. Between a patient walking out on their own, or facing a lifetime of disability, or worse…

Medical teams use the Defibrillator to resuscitate patients who have stopped breathing, or whose hearts have stopped beating. A new Crash Cart Defibrillator will be fully mobile on wheels, meaning it can be taken anywhere in the hospital when needed.

Please help us raise the funds to purchase essential equipment like the Crash Cart Defibrillator. Please make a donation today!
With your generous gift going towards helping us purchase this and other critical pieces of equipment, you will truly be the heartbeat of our hospital!
