Para Space Landscaping Thanks Front Line Workers

It seems now, more than ever, we need to support the communities in which we live and work. That’s why Para Space Landscaping jumped at the idea of spreading some cheer to our dedicated frontline workers by giving away free spring clean-up services to deserving candidates.

Para Space selected 7 frontline workers who were in need of a garden makeover.

These hard working recipients of Para Space’s generous act include:

  • The Nijjers who are a family of two frontline workers, a firefighter and pharmacist
  • Nizbeth Ali, a nurse at Langley Memorial Hospital.
  • Kellie Nehring, care worker at a senior’s home
  • Dexter Ramos is an ICU nurse at Vancouver General Hospital
  • Sue Wittrin has been working in Emergency at Delta Hospital for 21 years and is only one month away from her retirement
