Since 2014, Emma Lea Farms has contributed $14,584 to Reach’s Building for Children Together project.

“We love supporting Reach Child and Youth Development Society because they play a very important role in our community,” said Leek.

The Emma Lea Farms summer fundraiser benefitting Reach boasted face painting and Canada Day tattoos for children attending as well plentiful fresh strawberries.

“Emma Lea’s contribution is helping Reach to construct our new three-storey Reach Child Development Centre in Ladner and we are appreciative of this local family business’ social awareness and commitment to helping children,” said D’Aquila.

“Our new Lois E. Jackson Kinsmen Children’s Centre will serve as a place of learning and belonging for children and youth with special needs and their families, providing autism and speech, occupational and physical therapy and counselling rooms, youth program areas, specialized lending libraries and an inclusive pre-school.”

The project also includes a community playground along with expanded event space.
