At the last meeting of LSTAR's 2016 Board of Directors, the Association's 2016 President Stacey Evoy and LSTAR CEO John Geha presented a cheque for $25,000 to Julie McKenzie, Development Officer, London Health Sciences Foundation, and Julie Gerber, Adult Mental Health Eating Disorders Social Worker, to be used towards kitchen equipment, including appliances and upgrades to the Adult Eating Disorder Clinic's dining area. In 2015 LSTAR pledged to donate $50,000 over a two-year period (2016-2017) to the Clinic. The cheque presented today was in fulfillment of LSTAR's commitment for 2016.
"This is the first publicly funded clinic in Ontario and sorely needed," explains Stacey Evoy. "We are proud to be a part of making this program available and affordable for those who so desperately need assistance to live healthy and productive lives."
LSTAR adheres to a Quality of Life philosophy, supporting growth that fosters economic vitality, provides housing opportunities, respects the environment and builds good communities and safe neighbourhoods. The monies donated come from LSTAR's Business Partners Program, sponsorship, various fundraising events and the Ontario REALTORS Care Foundation, of which LSTAR is a proud supporter.
