10 Jun The Great Canadian Giving Challenge
For every dollar donated online during the month of June the Empower Simcoe Foundation receives a ballot to win $20,000 in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge (minimum donation $3).
In the #StaySafeOutside campaign, the Foundation is asking supporters to donate to the Capital Improvements fund to help make the backyards and patios of Empower Simcoe’s supported living homes more beautiful and enjoyable for the people who live there.
Since they are unable to enjoy the usual group outings and social activities this summer, due to the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, people in supported living want to spend time outside their own homes. But sometimes their chairs are in rough shape, or don’t have any cushions. Sometimes their gardens don’t have any flowers. Some homes don’t have proper shade protection, and the people who live there can’t spend much time in the sun due to the risk of sunburn, sun stroke, and heat stroke.
Just having more games to play outside, a water fountain or some hanging flower baskets, would make being outside more enjoyable. Why not make a donation to the Empower Simcoe Foundation today if you can?
