This June, Help Us Win $10,000 to Support Refugee Children in Our Community

This June, Help Us Win $10,000 to Support Refugee Children in Our Community

Children and youth who are coming from refugee camps have experienced and overcome numerous challenges. Many have come from war torn countries and have spent years separated from their families. Yet, these young people are resilient. They express their happiness, remain hopeful and dream of the same things that other children and youth in our community aspire to achieve. They want a safe and warm home, they want food on the table and they want to be part of a community.

For the entire month of June, every $1 you donate to us through www.canadahelps.org  qualifies us to win $10,000! These funds would provide our refugee children and youth with an art therapy program. This program would help to reduce feelings of isolation and anxiety, provide a medium to express their stories and deal with trauma, and allow for connections to develop to create a sense of belonging.

The more you give, the more chances for us to win! Please support our Challenge this June and help these children along their healing journey.

The 2016 Census is Here!

The 2016 Census is Here!

The data that is collected through the census plays a key role in supporting neighbourhoods and in the development of services for our community. It is important that every household completes a census so that accurate data reflects the needs of our neighbourhoods.

Learn more about the census by visiting their website. Resources available include a Fact Sheet and the 2016 Census questions and reasons why they ask those questions. For some quick info, check out the document “The Census and You.”

Kids and adults can also have some “Colour Me Census” fun by downloading the PDF below. Find the sixteen maple leafs and colour them red.
