Our New Fundraiser: PEI Escape Rooms!

posted Sep 3, 2014, 7:35 AM by Josie Baker   [ updated Sep 14, 2014, 3:27 PM ]

For the Latest Updates, Check out our Facebook Page!

The premise is simple. You and your friends are locked in a room and must escape! Throughout the room, you will find clues and solve puzzles to find your way out. Will you be escaping from a haunted house? Or are you investigating an inspector? Make sure you escape in time!
Escape rooms are a fun activity for a group of friends, family adventures, or team building for colleagues. Live Action Escape Room games began in Japan and have spread the world over, and the first escape in PEI is here in Charlottetown.

The Voluntary Resource Centre received funding from PEI 2014 Fund to commission an art piece for the outside wall of the Centre. The art piece celebrates the themes of Active Community, Civic Engagement, Human Rights, and Inclusion. The artist, Warren Christopher Reeson, is working with teens who participate in Murphy's Community Centre programs to complete the project. The unveiling is happening with a party, weather permitting.

Accessibility Fund

posted Jun 10, 2013, 9:39 AM by Sylvie Arsenault   [ updated Jun 10, 2013, 11:19 AM ]

The Enabling Accessibility Fund of Human Resources & Skills Development Canada provided us with a grant which covers two-thirds of the cost to make our building accessible to persons with physical disabilities. We have been widening door ways, building ramps, and redesigning the kitchen and bathroom. We need your help to fundraise the remaining one-third of the cost for renovations. There are a few ways you can do this:
 
Buy Tickets to See Anne & Gilbert
 
Campbell Webster has agreed to donate $10 to our fund with every Anne & Gilbert ticket purchased by June 22nd. Here is how you can help:

1) Visit www.AnneAndGilbert.com to purchase tickets online.
2) Enter the promo code VRC when purchasing tickets. This will reduce all tickets purchased by $5 and also trigger an additional $10 per ticket donation to the VRC.
 
Make a Financial Contribution
 
If you are able to make a monetary donation, you can make a cheque payable to Voluntary Resource Council and send it to 81 Prince Street, Charlottetown, C1A 4R3. You may also donate online at http://www.canadahelps.org/CharityProfilePage.aspx?CharityID=s12217. All donations are eligible for a receipt for income tax purposes.
 
This project has been a dream of ours for years, so we would really appreciate your support.
 
Thank you!
