Media Advisory: Bus springs into action at Kipling Acres|
| || ||
After a major fundraising drive, the residents at Kipling Acres, a Toronto Home
for the Aged, are getting ready to enjoy their new specially-equipped
accessible bus. A special ribbon cutting ceremony will launch this new vehicle.
The ceremony will be attended by Councillors Rob Ford (Ward 2 Etobicoke North)
and Suzan Hall (Ward 1 Etobicoke North). Also attending will be representatives
from the corporations and community groups that made donations towards the
$99,000 cost of the bus, along with residents and family members.
Date: Monday, November 4
Time: 2 p.m.
Location: Kipling Acres Home for the Aged
2233 Kipling Ave.
The new custom-equipped bus will accommodate 16 people, including four
wheelchairs, and will help connect residents to the rest of the city. The bus
offers a critical lifeline to help home residents connect with the outside
community and also helps seniors in the community get connected with services
operated from Kipling Acres.
Kipling Acres has a long tradition of providing quality long-term care to its
residents and the bus will be an important tool for helping residents maintain
connections with the community.
