New Senior Development Officer at Our Place

Lori Angelini Joins the Fundraising Team

VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwired - July 15, 2015) - Our Place is excited to announce the appointment of Lori Angelini as its new Senior Development Officer.

Angelini brings a wealth of experience to this essential position, including past experience in healthcare and post-secondary education fundraising.

"Our Place serves such a critical need in the community," said Angelini. "And the more donors discover the important work we do for the most vulnerable in our area, the more they want to help. I want to be part of that."

"We are thrilled to have Lori join our team," said Laura Walsh, director of development. "She brings extensive experience and skill in the area of fundraising that will be crucial in delivering on our ambitious plans over the next few years."

Our Place is a unique inner-city community centre serving Greater Victoria's most vulnerable: working poor, impoverished elderly, mentally and physically challenged, addicted and the homeless. Individuals and businesses provide the majority of financial support for its programs and services. Our Place provides over 1,500 meals per day, hot showers, education, job skills, free clothing, counseling and outreach services, plus 45 transitional housing units. Most importantly, it provides a sense of hope and belonging to our neighbours in need.
