COLLINGWOOD, ON, Dec. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Living Water Resort & Residences, a year-round recreational and tourist destination situated right on the shores of Georgian Bay, has committed to raising funds for the Collingwood Friends of Syrian Family Sponsorship to help sponsor Syrian families in Collingwood. The Resort is working closely with Elephant Thoughts, a local international Charity in Collingwood, to raise a minimum of $60,000 to sponsor two Syrian families in Collingwood for one year and encourages other businesses to participate in this worthy cause.
As of December 1st, the Resort employees have already raised over $4,600, which includes matched donations from the owner, Larry Law. The Resort is the anchor of the Collingwood community and assists with a number of local charities and educational programs.
'The Collingwood Syrian Sponsorship Committee is so pleased that Larry Law and the staff at Living Water and Cranberry Resorts have been so compassionate and donated so much to assist with our sponsorship of two Syrian Families to Collingwood,' said Thomas Vincent, Co-Chair, Collingwood Syrian Family Sponsorship Committee. "Their generosity will assist us greatly in achieving our fund raising target and shows that Collingwood residents really do care."
"We are proud to be able to work with our team at the Resort for this important cause, one that will help a number of families rebuild their lives. We can only achieve this by working together," said Larry Law, President of Living Water Resort & Residences. 'We are happy to share this opportunity for all our staff to feel the joy of serving and giving to those less fortunate."
