A nice surprise this week for the New Brunswick Association for Community Living.
The association is well into its End Exclusion campaign in hopes of helping intellectually-disabled New Brunswickers have a better quality of life.
It has put out an urgent call for $125,000 by the end of March to keep its family support team operating.
Wow! @FredNorthRotary just presented @nbacl with a cheque for $10,400! This will help us support 8 families through our family support program! Helping us to #endexclusion one family, or eight, at a time! Everyone has the #RighttoBelong! pic.twitter.com/fGbwipm1zN

The Fredericton North Rotary Club heard its plight and has given them a sizable donation with a cheque for $10,400.
The End Exclusion campaign is looking to raise $3 million in five years and now has about $990,000 raised.
