Thanks to ECHOES’ longtime corporate partner, La Colombe Coffee (www.lacolombe.net), and our loyal donors, construction is moving forward on the the new boys’ dormitory at Trinity Children’s Centre. A new three-story dorm/classroom complex will replace the dorm that was destroyed by fire last year, leaving 150 mostly orphaned boys homeless. Boys from first grade through middle school-age will move into the first two floors by the time school starts Feb. 1. Much-needed classrooms will occupy the third floor.
In the fall of 2013, La Colombe challenged ECHOES’ supporters to match its $6,500 gift to the dorm rebuilding fund. Joyfully, we report that the challenge has been met! A huge thank you to all!
