There is never a day that goes by where we are not reminded of the community support for Jessie’s House. A $3 million dollar project, and labour of love led by a grieving family, supportive friends and tireless volunteers, we’ve raised nearly half the funds needed almost exclusively through donations and fundraising. Today, we received a call from Massive Toy Blow Out in Edmonton that an anonymous angel had nominated us for a $500 shopping spree at their spring sale. After reviewing a number of heartwarming and deserving nominations, staff were moved by Jessica’s story and blown away by the Jessica Martel Memorial Foundation’s grassroots project, selecting us to be their recipient.
There’s no doubt the children we expect house, when Jessie’ House opens in 2020, will find comfort and joy playing with these toys. Thank you!
