Langley company helping build Reach Child and Youth Development facility

Langley-based Matcon Civil Constructors made a $20,000 contribution toward the construction of Reach Child and Youth Development’s new facility being built in Ladner.

To date, almost $4 million has been raised from individual and community donors to build a new children’s community resource centre in the heart of Ladner.

The proposed 20,000 square foot building will replace the current Ladner Kinsmen House at 47th Avenue and allow Reach Society to provide new, enhanced programs for children with special needs and increase the number of children served in the communities of Langley, Surrey and Delta.

In addition, the new location will make Reach services more visible and easily accessible to families.

“Social responsibility is at the heart of Matcon Civil Constructors,” said Reach Foundation executive director Renie D’Aquila. “Once complete, the new Reach Centre will serve generations to come as place of learning and belonging for children with special needs and their families.”

Over 10,000 children and their families benefit from Reach’s services on an annual bases. For more info go to reachdevelopment.org.
