great-west life rooftop garden and solarium
The Great-West Life Rooftop Garden & Solarium is open! The Great-West Life Rooftop Garden & Solarium has been a long-time vision. As part of Misericordia’s commitment to healthy aging and an exceptional quality of life for our residents and their families, you have shared our passion to create a space that would offer access to fresh air and the outdoors as well as spectacular views of our beautiful city
Many of you have embraced this innovative project and have invested your time, gifts and energy in one way or another into this dream, this vision, and this space. We are truly grateful. You have been cheerleaders and champions to make this solarium and garden an interactive and beautiful place that is bringing joy to all who are using it.
If you were able to peek into the 7th floor at Misericordia, you would see families visiting or having a birthday party, perhaps a book club, an art class, an astronomy class or even a cooking class. You might see a school group performing, or see the residents watering the flowers. The sky is the limit as to the activities that can be enjoyed up there.
Great-West Life provided the $250,000 lead gift for this wonderful space that we have proudly named after them. But that was just one of the many gifts – your gifts – that brought this space into being.Your gifts will create a better life for your parents, grandparents, and friends as they age. Thank you for sharing our dream and vision and making it a reality.
While the space is now open and being used, there are on-going needs such as a sound system, seasonal lighting, a shed to store garden tools, and of course garden materials for next spring. Your gift to the rooftop garden and solarium will allow our elderly residents to enjoy a better quality of life. If you want to be part of it, call 204-788-8458 to make your donation.
