–Sooke Community Association
We are in the process of applying for a grant with www.herowork.com in Victoria. Should we be successful this would lead to a complete renovation of our historic community hall in 2017, bringing it up to current code and increasing its functionality. If this happens, it would coincide with the 80th anniversary of the building.
If we are successful in our bid this will be a win-win-win for the Sooke Community Association, the 15 non-profit organizations that currently use the space to carry out their good works, and the community at large.
We have been advised that our application will be strengthened greatly if we can show broad community support, especially in the area of construction trades work, since we are located at the edge of Herowork’s geographic scope.
We are looking for letters of support from businesses, local government and other community organizations, especially related to the following areas:
- Building Additions
- Building Envelope and Windows
- Building Foundation
- Event planning
- Volunteer Coordination
- Wheel Chair access and railings
- Window Coverings
There is no need to outline what you are willing to do to support this application, merely that you see value in the project and wish to provide support. For your convenience, a template letter is included below. Feel free to edit or create your own. If you are in fact interested in supporting this initiative please create and sign a letter on your letterhead. You can then call us at 250-884-9955 or email email@example.com so we can arrange for pick. Time is of the essence, we need your letters of support by August 19th, if at all possible.
Herowork has developed a finely tuned process for doing these renovations and when the time comes they will work with each of you to match what you are willing to offer with the larger project.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please feel free to share this information with other contractors you think might be interested.

Dear Herowork Team:
RE: Sooke Community Hall, 2037 Shields Road, Sooke, B.C.
We are pleased to support the Sooke Community Association and their application for a radical renovation of our historic community hall.
The Sooke Community Hall is a place where non-profit groups host their fund raisers and craft fairs, allowing them to continue their own good works. It is the venue for weddings, funerals, dances, fitness training, public forums, private events, and is designated as the main emergency response centre for the District of Sooke. This building has been the heart of our community for almost 80 years.
(Please provide a line or two about what your business and what you do).
We look forward hearing that this application has been successful, to learning more, and working with the Herowork Team on a Radical Renovation of this historic non-profit building.
