Eastwood is a condominium tower for seniors, 1414 King St. East, Kitchener, Ontario, N2G 4T8. Planning for the project began in 1980 when First Mennonite Church Council invited the following congregations to appoint delegates to a task force on Kitchener seniors' housing needs: First Mennonite, Ottawa Street Mennonite Brethren, Rockway Mennonite and Stirling Avenue Mennonite. The task force was incorporated as a Board of Directors in 1983. Construction began just before Christmas, 1985.

Custodial history: The fonds was donated in several groupings; the last donation was by Nelson Scheifele in March 1999, and included board and Health Committee materials from 1988-1993.
