On behalf of Centennial residents, CCRA supports the Tony Stacey Centre for Veterans Care (TSC). In 2020, CCRA helped with the organization of the first ever car parade at TSC to support the front line workers especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. CCRA organized a major fundraiser for TSC which raised over $20,000.00, including a donation directly from CCRA of $10,000.00. The funds were allocated to purchase ten Point of Care Kiosks and to upgrade much dated computer infrastructure at the centre. This use of funds will free up time for staff to spend more quality time with each resident.
