Variety Village asks for help after flood

Heavy rain caused more than $200,000 in damage to a Variety Village in Scarborough, Ontario. The damage is having subsequent consequences including that several fundraising events may not be able to be held, as a rainstorm in July caused the drainage system to be overwhelmed, leading to catastrophic damage.

Toronto storage solutions are available to support businesses struck with damage, providing containers for salvageable items.

“The damage is mostly limited to the roof area near the weight room and the entire taekwondo studio and its equipment in the basement,” said John Willson, CEO of Variety Village. “Much of the cost to repair the damage will be covered by insurance, but we are still facing a bill totaling over $50,000 for restoration work not covered.”

The Variety Village has more than 600 members, including paralympic athletes that are competing at the Games in London. In response, the village is asking for public support to help recover from what mother nature has caused. The not for profit charity said that they hope to be able to continue programs that have a significant impact on people's lives, but are worried many won't receive services due to the damage.
