Good Neighbours: Rotary helps Cool Aid build community


The Downtown Community Centre is officially re-opened after it’s $100K revamp.

Users of Cool Aid’s Downtown Community Centre are enjoying revamped facilities, including new showers, improved lighting and additional soundproofing, thanks to a $100,000 donation from the Rotary Club of Victoria. The centre, run by the Victoria Cool Aid Society, provides free and low-cost activities and is part of the larger Pandora Project that includes housing for people with mental-health and addiction issues. It has been operating at 755 Pandora Ave. since 1997.
