Staff and residents at KinVillage are appreciative of the tremendous community outpouring it continues to receive amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Tsawwassen seniors residence recently dealt with a couple of COVID-19 outbreaks, one that lasted 18 days in the West Court that saw five staff members test positive, while there was also a 24-day outbreak on the third floor of the south court. A total of four residents were infected and sadly two of them died.
For the second time since the pandemic led to the initial lockdown 11 months ago, South Delta Baptist Church delivered personal cards to the residents. In addition, $1,000 was raised towards each staff member to receive a large pizza from Madhouse Pizza. The Tsawwassen eatery contributed towards the costs with a discounted deal, while KinVillage also chipped in.
“We are very grateful for South Delta Baptist Church’s support during the pandemic and Madhouse Pizza for their generosity in providing a pizza to each of our staff to pick-up after a long day of work,” said KinVillage executive assistant Sue Satterthwaite.
Students from Pebble Hill Traditional School also ensured it would be a special Valentine’s Day as more than 100 hand-made Valentine’s Day cards were delivered to the residents to let them know they are in the students’ thoughts during these unprecedented times.
