If a thousand people each donated $6, the Kentville Legion could complete its much-needed roof repairs.

That’s the kind of mathematics a local fundraising group is counting on as they partner with one of the Annapolis Valley's largest legions on a new online fundraising campaign. The campaign, which will run from June 1 – September 30th, aims to raise the $6,000 the Legion says it needs to finish shingling the west-facing side of its River Street facility.

The fundraising group has been spearheaded by a group of employees at Careforce – a local home health care agency. Careforce Business Development Manager Joel Stoddart says that when they learned about the need, it made perfect sense for them to spring into action.

“The Legion and its members have been very supportive of Careforce over the years, and we’ve been lucky to serve many veterans around the Annapolis Valley. Mobilizing the community to give back is the least we can do.”

Although the fundraising group is uncertain how much money will be raised, committee member Tracey Sanford says they’re confident that the generosity of the Valley will shine through.

“People in the Valley really come together for special causes,’ she says, ‘and when you consider how many people are connected to the legions in our area, you’re talking about thousands of people. Helping the legion with a capital project like this helps free their resources to focus on their community efforts.”

In addition to the online campaign, a number of Careforce employees have agreed to pledge a portion of their bi-weekly paycheques to the cause throughout the four-month campaign. The company will match all employee contributions.

In addition to Fundrazr.com, donations can also be made in person at Careforce’s office at 946 Park Street in Kentville, or by mail to: 946 Park Street, Unit 400, Kentville, NS, B4N 3V7.

NOTE: The Kentville Legion is a private-members clubs and is not a registered charity. For that reason, tax receipts will not be issued for this campaign. 100% of all proceesd from this campaign will be directly donated to the Kentville Legion, and the amount raised will be announced on October 15, 2014.
