Florence is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Doherty. This family is a very strong supporter of our community, known to many of you over the years. By now some of you might have heard about Florence's illness which has taken a toll on the tranquility of the whole family. Florence has lost the use of one of her legs as a result of amputation. This has affected her ability to walk or move around. She needs a motorized wheel chair now to assist her solve her mobility challenges. Florence needs our help now, and I have no doubt the community is ready and willing to meet the challenge of buying her a power wheelchair now, at this very moment.

SALNAM with the community’s support, is organizing this fundraising event with the sole purpose of raising enough funds to buy her an electric wheel chair now. I encourage you all to come out in large numbers to support this humanitarian project. And please bring a friend along with you. We are also asking for donations, and we are encouraging you all to donate generously to this worthy cause. Please note that donations are needed also to assist the family defray the costs of outstanding medical and other expenses.
