Bachly Construction is very proud of our official sponsorship and partnership with the Smilezone Foundation. We dedicate our time and building resources to help create warm, inviting environments for kids in hospitals and treatment centres. The reality of a sick child is unimaginable, but Smilezone aims to make the process a little easier for everyone, “one smile at a time.”
Through our renovations with Smilezone we take what typically would be a dark, scary place for families and turn it into a light, happy and entertaining space to help make a child smile during a difficult time. Many of these children don’t have the chance to act like a kid as much as they should.
Their illness inflicts a reality that does not allow them to do so. Smilezone gives them a chance to play and laugh and enjoy themselves in an environment that normally isn’t a happy place.
