Westshore Terminals LTD Partnership has donated $100,000 to Reach Child and Youth Development Society’s Building for Children Together capital project to build a new child development centre in Ladner for children and youth with developmental disabilities.

The proposed new centre will be built in the heart of Ladner allowing greater accessibility and space for more programs, and providing vital services to more children and youth with disabilities.

“We believe that it’s not only good to support our community, but that it’s our duty to support our community” said Denis Horgan, Vice President and General Manager of Westshore Terminals. “Building this new facility in Ladner will just be a tremendous asset for the community.”

In addition to this donation Westshore was recently a presenting sponsor for the Reach for the Stars gala that raised $50,000 towards the new centre.

Westshore Terminals Ltd. at Roberts Bank is part of Port Metro Vancouver and has been part of the Delta community for close to 40 years.

“Westshore Terminals’ contribution to our capital campaign is both significant and pivotal,” said Barbara Wallick, chair for Reach Charitable Foundation.

“Westshore’s donation to Reach brings us just shy of this year’s $1 million goal from the total of $4 million that needs to be raised.

The construction project is a partnership between the Corporation of Delta, Reach Child and Youth Development Society and the Ladner Tsawwassen Kinsmen Club.
