Agassiz-Harrison Lions support Honour House

Local organizations donates to New West group that helps military and first responders

At their dinner meeting on Jan. 27, the Agassiz-Harrison Lions donated a large portion of their July car show proceeds to Honour House.

As described by its general manager, Craig Longstaff, Honour House is “a Ronald McDonald house for military personnel and first responders and their families in time of crisis.”

Located in New Westminster, the house offers individuals and families a place to stay when they or their family members are receiving treatment in the Vancouver area.

The house operates on donations and only employs one paid staff member. Volunteers man, maintain and refurbish the house as needed, and there is no charge to guests or to their employers for using the facility.

The service is open to active and retired fire, police, paramedics, sheriffs, corrections officers and others.
