At Eagle Homes, we believe in community. We are fortunate to be in a position where we can support several local charities and organizations throughout the year. We are taking this time to feature some of the organizations that we have supported over the year, in the hopes that you will feel moved to support them as well. By giving to these amazing organizations, we are bettering the communities that support us.

Day 1: Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity began in 1968 because Linda and Millard Fuller of Americus, Georgia, U.S. had a passion to provide access to safe and decent housing for everyone and to have people, from all walks of life, come together to make this vision come true. In 1984, former United States President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn took part in their first ever Habitat build and continue to do so to this day.

To date, Habitat has built 800,000 houses in over 100 countries around the world, providing more than 4 million people with safe, decent, and affordable shelter.

Day 2: The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army is an international organization that began its work in Canada in 1882 and has grown to become one of the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country. The Salvation Army gives hope and support to vulnerable people today and everyday in 400 communities across Canada and more than 130 countries around the world.

The Salvation Army offers practical assistance for children and families, often tending to the basic necessities of life, provides shelter for homeless people and rehabilitation for people who have lost control of their lives to an addiction.

When you give to The Salvation Army, you are investing in the future of marginalized and overlooked people in your community. Find out more here: https://salvationarmy.ca/

Day 3: Shuswap Hospital Foundation
The purpose of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation is to accept, manage and disburse funds and properties to the benefit of Shuswap Health Services. This entity includes Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Bastion Place, (a residential care facility) and Community Care Services.

Funds are used to help meet the need for priority equipment and facilities that will enhance the care of patients and residents of these health care facilities and services. All investments and property are held in trust.

Day 4: Shuswap Hospice Society
The Shuswap Hospice Society supports those who are dealing with death, diagnosis and grief along with the associated emotional realities of that process. We provide compassionate care to those living with a life-limiting illness, as well as grief and bereavement support to the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones, caregivers, and anyone impacted by diagnosis or loss.

Day 5: Shuswap Rotary
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.

Since it was founded more than 100 years ago, the Foundation has spent more than $4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

The mission of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

Day 7: Summit Church
Summit Church is a group of people committed to being real and authentic. That means they strive to be like Jesus, who is their perfect example of what it means to please God. Not only are they about ‘Reaching Up’ but they also believe in ‘Reaching Out’, and that means we love all people: inside and outside the church with compassion, acceptance and forgiveness.

Day 8: Cranbrook's Evolution Tae Kwon-Do Club
Many people start for self-defence or to keep fit but once you have started, you will soon realize that it is about ‘SELF’ improvement and development, so when you’re training we gauge your progress by your own improvements, no matter how small, to inspire you to grow and develop your own skills.
