BVO’s Bruce Street Building Sold!


The Blue Mountains, November 24, 2017 – Beaver Valley Outreach is pleased to announce that its current headquarters at 64 Bruce St. South has been sold – an important step in the organization’s move to its new home at 54 King Street in Thornbury.

“Earlier this year, after careful consideration of the options available to us to overcome our space, accessibility and efficiency issues, we seized the opportunity to purchase the former Piper’s property on King Street,” says BVO Executive Director Carolyn Letourneau. “Now that our current building is sold, we are able to move forward with renovating the new space to suit our needs. In the next couple of weeks, we will be choosing a contractor, and hope to be moved in just after Easter in 2018.

Representing an exciting chapter in its 30-year history, BVO’s new location will offer an efficient and functional space from which to continue “making good things happen in our community”, including single level accessibility, plenty of parking, on-site storage, volunteer gathering/meeting space, staff office space, and both a retail and sorting space for the Treasure Shop.

The sale of BVO’s current building - mortgage-free and owned by the organization - will help to considerably pay down a mortgage required for the purchase of the King Street property. BVO has launched a relocation fundraising campaign, with a goal of raising $250,000, to further pay down this mortgage and renovate the new site. Donations to this fund will be used solely for this purpose.
“This is such an exciting move for BVO!” says Carolyn Letourneau. “We are thrilled about the future improvements in work space for our volunteers and staff, as well as the added convenience that customers and visitors to BVO will experience. I am confident that it will be the best place for BVO forever! “
