CBT grants put to good use at manor

"This low income facility for seniors is indeed fortunate to receive financial assistance."

Over the last several years the Beaver Valley Manor Society has received grants from the Columbia Basin Trust, making it possible for the Board to update and modernize most bathrooms in the building.

New flooring, vanities, faucets, toilets and bathtub acrylic liners for tubs and walls have been installed over that time. The latest grant enabled the Manor Board to continue its long-term plan to update facilities when bathrooms in eight suites were improved. Tenants whose bathrooms were done have been very happy with the results. Not only do the areas look much better, they are now more efficient, easier to clean and, importantly, require less maintenance.

As the Manor approaches its 40th year of operation, there is a need for the Board to ensure that the suites be kept in good repair so that efficiency and more modern appearances are maintained. This low income facility for seniors is indeed fortunate to receive financial assistance to provide such needs. The CBT grant definitely makes it much easier for all of this to happen.
