Raising the Roof for the Port Alberni Shelter

The PA Shelter Society and Paul Davis Restorations have teamed up to bring the Raising the Roof fundraising campaign to the Valley.

The Port Alberni Shelter Society and Paul Davis Restorations have teamed up to bring the Raising the Roof fundraising campaign to the Alberni Valley.

John Douglas from the PA Shelter and Corean and Frank Melnychuk from Paul Davis were at a recent Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ game selling hats and mitts for Raising the Roof’s Toque Campaign.

The national campaign sees volunteers sell toques across the country, benefiting partner agencies. This is the first year for the Raising the Roof campaign in the Alberni Valley.

“We got asked by the Raising the Roof organization to represent this region,” Douglas said.

Half of the sale proceeds goes toward affordable housing programs in the host community, and the other half goes to national programs, he added.

The Toque Campaign will be at at Save-On-Foods, Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
