Established in April 2017, Broadmoor Neighborhood Association (BNA) is a not-forprofit founded by a group of 200 community households dedicated to the safety of their community. The association initially came together to improve the well-being of their community by setting up Block Watches and safety training with the RCMP, managing a community help hotline and organizing street patrols.
Realizing they were able to make a bigger impact beyond their own neighborhood, the association became a philanthropic leader, supporting many charities including RCMP’s annual toy drive, Richmond Christmas Foundation, Hospitals in Wu Han, China and others.
Seeing the current challenges the community and world is facing with the COVID-19 pandemic, the association wanted to support their local health care heroes by donating towards Richmond Hospital Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund, providing much needed medical equipment to our health care teams.
“Our neighbors love the city we live in and appreciate the doctors, nurses and health care teams who are working in the front line to save people’s live and fight against this pandemic,” says Mr. Zhao. “We would like to let them know that we are so thankful and willing to help in any way that we can. After all, we are all in this together.”
“It is amazing to see the dedication the Broadmoor Neighborhood Association has in building a better community for their loved ones, friends and neighbors,” says Natalie Meixner, President and CEO, Richmond Hospital Foundation. “Their leadership will inspire others in our community to come together and make an impact during this challenging time.”
