The Dunn family of Aldergrove shows their thankfulness for their Extreme Home Makeover.

Extreme Home Repair marks 10 great years

One of the most powerful events and no doubt the highlight of AOK's year was our 10th anniversary of Extreme Home Repair

Editor:

As the season of giving is upon us we would like to take a moment to share with you what has made this past year memorable for us. We think of the successes we have achieved, the new friends we have made and the changes that have helped make us a better community and a better church family.

One of the most powerful events and no doubt the highlight of AOK’s year was our 10th anniversary of Extreme Home Repair. Whether you gave of your time, money or resources, you contributed with a giving heart that has forever changed the Dunn family. Your generosity has changed Cathy, Ian and Jamie’s house into a home and given them a chance to rewrite their futures, for the better.

Whether you have supported our cause for one year or even for 10, you have helped us create an incredible story of love, compassion and devotion for our fellow neighbours. A story that will continue to be told for years to come and for all eternity. You keep inspiring us to believe that anything is possible when we work together for the greater good and fortunately, it doesn’t stop there.

“Thank you” does not seem worthy enough to describe the amount of gratitude we feel… however, it is a start. So it is with glowing hearts and outstretched arms we thank you for your support, contribution and your testament that together we can change lives. Most of all we thank you for changing our lives and restoring our hearts and faith by inspiring us to believe in something greater than ourselves.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year!

May God be with you.

The Rev. Dauncey, on behalf of Extreme Home Repair Team of the Acts of Kindness Society, Aldergrove
