L’Arche Comox Valley has nearly reached the 40-per-cent mark of its public fundraising campaign, launched Friday at the Prime Chophouse in Courtenay.
Individual donors have committed $300,000 towards the campaign target of $800,000, which will be used to construct a second home in the city for L’Arche clients.
The entire project will cost an estimated $1.4 million. The balance can be covered through a mortgage. The hope is to break ground early in 2015, with occupancy about a year later.
