FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. -- The North Peace Seniors Housing Society received a private donation for much needed renovations to its aging buildings.

Sherry and Dave Marshall generously made a $15,000 donation to the society, the price to renovate a single unit.

The Marshalls are deeply tied to the community, both Dave and Sherry are involved in other non-profit organizations within the city.

They are hoping the donation will highlight the importance of taking care of seniors in the community as the cost of living skyrocket.

Gail Weber, North Peace Seniors Housing Society Chairman of the Board, says donations big or small are a major contribution to the project and hope others come forward.

"It's a long way to go. I really think our seniors deserve upgraded nice facilities to live in and we can just peck away at this one suite at a time until we get them done and hope that there's a lot more Dave and Sherry's out there that'll pitch in and give us a hand."

The two tower style building serviced by the society is 40 years old. There are 100 units total from both buildings. 

So far 6 units have been renovated from grants and fundraising.

Renovating all units will cost roughly $1,500,000.
