Special Thanks to…La Rosa No Frills

pizap.com14483023853162A huge welcome to our new partner, La Rosa No Frills (Garden St., Whitby).  The daily donations of fruit, vegetables and bread are making a huge impact for us at Nova’s Ark.  Not only for our animals, who receive a daily allotment of healthy food, but for a number of our special guests who are learning valuable life skills while sorting and distributing food to these very grateful therapy animals.

Thank you so much for believing in us!

Special Thank You To…

pizap.com14458829379571On Saturday, October 24, approx. 20 employees from Intact Insurance arrived bright and early to volunteer their support at Nova’s Ark.  Coming from all over the Region, and some from as far away as Milton, they worked diligently all day clearing the countless number of leaves from our front yard.  Even through the rain these wonderful volunteers gave 100 percent along with huge smiles.  Some brought their families to share in the day – you’re never too young to volunteer!

As always, when the work is done – you get to play!  An inviting fire was set in the Gazebo to provide a warm place to meet and enjoy lunch together.  Afterwards, members of our Leadership Team were on-hand to provide tours of the facility and to share the many success stories of Nova’s Ark.

Members of the Intact Insurance Team now have a deeper understanding of the therapy work that we do here at Nova’s Ark and have promised to return in the spring to meet and spend some time with our special guests.

We extend a huge thank you ♥ to our Intact volunteers…many hands make the task lighter.  What a wonderful sight to see a clear lawn to prepare for the coming winter.  We look forward to having you back soon!
