We would be grateful and honoured if you would like to donate the foothills centre. We understand that people have strong connections to Foothills Centre. We have created a space in our yard to memorialize those lost to addiction.

Serenity Circle

Serenity: the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.

The Serenity Circle is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, a testament that even in the face of heartbreak, healing is possible. Here memories are enshrined, and the stories of lives lost become a beacon, reminding us that every journey is precious, every battle worth fighting. In the embrace of the Serenity Circle, we find a solemn vow to turn tragedy into triumph, to honour the past while forging a future illuminated by hope, compassion, and the unyielding belief that recovery is within reach for all.

The Serenity Circle stands as a profound and poignant memorial, a sanctuary of remembrance for those whose lives were tragically claimed by the shadows of drug overdose.

Those wishing to donate in memory of a loved one may do so by purchasing one of the following items to be included within the Serenity Circle.

  • Adirondack chair
  • Name Plaque
