The seniors at Sunrise Village have been working hard to make a difference in the community.

On December 18th the Residence Council at Sunrise presented the Rowan House Women's Emergency Shelter with a $2,000 donation from their Residence Council Fund.

Assistant Chair Person of the Residence Council at Sunrise, Wally Fleury, says they do a number of activities to raise money for their fund.

"From the shop here that they have and lots of different things. We have recycling, we take recycling and we get money from that. We take it to Okotoks, and we get the recycling money from there."

Fleury says, everyone at Sunrise Village was 100 per cent behind giving the money to the Rowan House.

"There's women that are there, but they cannot find another place. And then there's some more women who would like to come in, but they can't because it's full."

The idea of where to donate the money to came from the Chairperson of the Residence Council, Fleury says.

"He sort of brought it up at a meeting, and we never had a clue what Rowan House was all about. But now we know. We know, so we'll be aware of Rowan House."
