The Prince George Citizen

For the third year, CopperFall­s Custom Homes offers the public a chance to purchase one of their homes with net proceeds going to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation to support better health outcomes in the North.

This year’s model will be similar to the first house they built for the charitable organizati­on. The house is a collaborat­ion with about 45 contractor­s and suppliers who will help create a 3,085 square foot rancher at 130-4393 Cowart Road in the Forest Park subdivisio­n.

“We live and raise our children in Prince George and want the best healthcare services available if and when it is needed,” Jeff Stewart and Brent Scheck, co-owners at CopperFall­s, said. “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.”

In the last two years, $190,000 has been donated from the Copper Project. The proceeds from the first home built in the Aberdeen subdivisio­n of $90,000 went to 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 pediatrics, mental health and wellness and cardiac care.

COVID is top of mind now while there are also other health concerns as well.

“We are delighted to enter into year three with such amazing support,” Judy Neiser, CEO for Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation, said. “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. It’s humbling to have so many very incredible people come together for such an amazing project in the community.”
