Vancouver Shaughnessy Lions Club Board Members Ellie Chan, Kelina Kwan, Grace Ng (on left and right) presented Touchstone Family Association a $2200 cheque in support of Touchstone's Front Porch Program supporting families . The Lions Club supports organizations that help local communities and Touchstone is to receive the donation .
Touchstone's Executive Director, Michael McCoy and Director of Operations, Judy Valsonis (middle) were on hand to receive the donation.
Touchstone Family Association invites you to view our new video.
Our intent is to demonstate the community services Touchstone provides and, in this case, bring a real life story of the experience. The video is an example of the importance of supporting families through the challenges faced in everyday life.
We hope that it motivates you to make a donation to Touchstone to support our open counselling services for families when they ask—the most important time to act. Your donation will support these needed services that strengthen families and make us a stronger and healthier community because, after all, family is the first community we belong to.
Any question please contact us.
