Ground breaking held for Copper Project 2021

Back again for 2021, and entering its third year, CopperFalls Custom Homes is continuing the tradition of creating a beautiful custom home, with the proceeds being donated to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation to support better health outcomes in the North.

This year along with approximately 45 contractors and suppliers, they are creating a 3,085 sq. ft. rancher modeled closely after their very first Copper Project, which was an incredible success. This year the home will be located in at #130 ‐ 4393 Cowart Road in the Forest Park Subdivision. Progress on the project can be followed at www.spiritofthenorth.ca.

“We live and raise our children in Prince George, and want the best healthcare services available if and when it is needed,” said Jeff Stewart and Brent Scheck, co‐owners at CopperFalls. “Healthcare has touched us in many ways already and it is our way of doing what we do best and working with those who support us to collectively have an impact…. It shows collaboration in the biggest way.”

During the last two years, what is fondly referred to as the Copper Project, has supported many areas of healthcare advancements for the region with a grand total donation of $190,000. To date two incredible homes in the Aberdeen subdivision have been built and sold, with the initial donation of $90,000 supporting three major areas of care: Breast Health Imaging, a Dedicated Maternal Operating Room and the purchase of four Ortho Video Operating Room Towers. Last year’s donation of $100,000 supported Paediatrics, Mental Health and Wellness, and Cardiac care; three areas in constant need of support. All of these areas are constantly changing and can only be improved in the area of diagnostics, detection, treatment and care with the help of such immense donations.

While COVID has definitely been top of mind this past year, we recognize that for many there are other health concerns that are prevalent at this time. Funding to bring state of the art equipment to the region also helps support attracting and retaining the healthcare professionals that are so badly needed as well.

“We are delighted to enter into year three with such amazing support. CopperFalls’ vision, shared with their sub trades, contractors and suppliers, together building a first class home is innovative and so generous. We are so very grateful for this partnership,” said Judy Neiser, CEO for Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. “It’s humbling to have so many very incredible people come together for such an amazing project in the community.”
