Burlington Community goes above and beyond for Carey House


Mayor Cam Jackson and Community Donors

Burlington Mayor Cam Jackson was at Carey House last week at the official ribbon cutting for the supportive housing project.  Established in 1976, Carey House provides adults with physical disabilities affordable and accessible housing in a group setting with 24-hour care.

A couple months ago, after a call to the community by Mayor Jackson for help with Carey House’s new project, building a Gazebo,  Rod Monkman, the Molson Coors sales rep for the Burlington area, organized a donation from Molson of $2,500 to help build the gazebo as well as a deck expansion which includes an updated wheel chair ramp.   Molson was just one of many donors that made this project a success – in true community spirit, over 40 local organizations, residents and companies stepped up and made this project happen.  Proud to play a part – cheers.
