A massive fundraising endeavor is underway to help a rural long term care home near Brockville, Ontario get a major facelift.

A campaign to raise $3 million three for an expansion of Maple View Lodge in Athens kicked off on Wednesday.

Almost a third of the goal, $833,000, has already been raised.

While the province is contributing $43 million to construct a new three-story, six wing building, donations from the fundraiser will help furnish the facility.

Off to a strong start, the $3 million campaign will continue until the doors open in 2025.
