The John M. Parrott Centre gratefully accepts memorial donations. Many families request that relatives and friends make an “In Memoriam” donation when they lose a loved one. It is a meaningful way to express sympathy to the bereaved family. When you make an “In Memoriam” donation to The John M. Parrott Centre, you leave a lasting legacy in the name of the deceased while contributing to the comfort of our residents. The name of the individual named for Memorial Donations will be posted on the Donor Recognition Board when donations in excess of $250 are received in their name.
Other Donation Opportunities:
Engraved Stepping Stones can be placed in the Community Garden and/or an RHA Garden for a donation of $350. The stepping stone will be inscribed with your name, or the name of someone you wish to honour or remember.
