I’ve recently announced my retirement and will be stepping down as executive director of the Lending Cupboard on July 31.
Just three years ago, we opened the doors to the second charity in Alberta that I have founded (AJ’s Loan Cupboard in Medicine Hat). Who would have known how great the need would have been for such a service.
In Red Deer, we are now serving close to 600 clients a month with an inventory of over 4,000 pieces of equipment. Although we now have a small staff, our operation could not succeed without the many volunteers who have put in thousands of hours. They are truly the heart of LC.
However, the media has played a major role in promoting our services to the community of Red Deer and Central Alberta and to you I extend my sincerest thanks. Without your support we couldn’t have reached the thousands of people who come to us. As I leave the Lending Cupboard, I ask that you continue to promote our service in the future as you have done so readily in the past.
