Reasons to Give:
- $1 per week can provide a person in crisis with 2 hours of intervention – this can mean helping give an individual direction, listening to them in their time of need, or providing counselling through the John Howard Society.
$1 per week helps to cover the cost of providing regular oral checkups for a local youth at the Community Care Community Dental Clinic.
$2 dollars per week provides worker consultations to assist families with support needed to navigate the Education System through Community Living Trent Highlands.
$5 per week would assist an individual to ensure they had funds for food for the entire month through the Canadian Mental Health Association.
$8 per week brings our toys, equipment, fun activities and staff to the doors of children living at a social housing complex in Lindsay, to provide early learning opportunities for them and parent support for their caregivers, through EarlyON.
$10 per week will provide an In-School Mentor to a child in one of the local elementary schools. This mentor will visit the child once a week throughout the school year and provide various activities outside of the classroom setting, such as baking, sports, arts and crafts, reading or just talking about life. Children will experience an improved self-esteem and confidence from these friendships and have a better outlook on their education, through Big Brothers Big Sisters.
$35 per week assists in the purchase of an Automated External Defibrillator, through St. John Ambulance.
