Parkland at the Gardens
Shannex has been proud to support the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia over the years.
To raise money for the cause, this year, Parkland at the Gardens held their own fundraiser called, “The Celebration of Wreaths.” During the first two weeks of December, friends of the community were invited to participate by donating a wreath or by making a cash donation to the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. Sponsored wreaths were proudly displayed throughout the Garden’s lobby and La Vie Bistro,
until December 16 when they were auctioned off to lucky bidders who took home beautiful specialty wreaths.
Collectively, the community had 22 wreaths and raised over $10,000 for the Mental Health
Foundation of Nova Scotia. Parkland at the Gardens resident, Maureen Banyard, led the efforts.
“While the holiday season is a time to celebrate with those we love and reflect on the things
we are most grateful for, it is also a difficult time for many,” said Maureen. “Supporting an organization like the Mental Health Foundation, which provides much needed care and services to people in need, is so important.”
