Linda, a Rotarian in Whistler for over 25 years and looking to give back when she settled in West Vancouver, joined with 3 other ladies, Jayne De’Ath, Kim VanSickle and Kathleen Willis, in that common thread.
In that way, West Coast Wishes is connected to A Door To Everything Society with its mission to help raise awareness and de-stigmatize the intense issues surrounding addiction, the overdose crisis, recovery in our beautiful city of Vancouver.
Upon discovery of John Volken Academy in Surrey, a Dalai Lama awarded therapeutic community for drug and alcohol addiction, A Door To Everything Society immediately saw the hope that John Volken has given to so many and began collaborating, helping to raise awareness of this successful recovery program for drug and alcohol addiction.
August 12th, A Door To Everything Society, planned an afternoon of haircuts and manicures for the females from the program in Surrey, a few hours of pampering for these brave ones on a their path of recovery, through West Coast Wishes and Shear Bliss Hair Studios, located in the adjacent courtyard.
Please drop into West Coast Wishes to visit with Linda, plan an event, order some fresh florals, meet other board members of A Door To Everything Society, support some of our local artisans.
