In Support of the Portapique Community Build Up
The tragic events of April 18th and 19th, 2020, in Nova Scotia have left a deep mark on the hearts of the people in our province, and Canadians collectively. For families who lost loved ones, friends, and coworkers who lost valued companions and for the communities that lost residents, these are days that will forever be marked by grief.
Our province has rallied to support all those who experienced loss on those terrible days and will continue to do so as only Nova Scotians can. We are inspired and lifted by the beautiful and moving tributes that have been shared at sites around the community and even virtually, as the way we grieve has been altered by our current state of emergency due to the COVID 19 pandemic. There have been many fundraising efforts put in place to support the victims’ families and the community during this time of great need.
About the fund
The We Rise Again Fund was established by the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Truro, The United Way, Ulnooweg Indigenous Communities Foundation, and the Rural Communities Foundation of Nova Scotia.
With the generous support of Green Shield Canada, the Toronto Community Foundation, and the Edmonton Community Foundation, and other donors, the We Rise Again Fund will enable a “Community Build Up” that will see the existing 150-year-old Portapique Community Hall transformed into a space that will enable the community to come together in a positive way.
The goal of this fund is to raise $685,000 in cash and in-kind donations to fund the Community Build Up Project. To date, we still have just over $100,000 to go.
