Dear Champion of Newcomers in our Community,

8-year-old Sarah MacDonald knew Syrian families were in need.

And that Peterborough was opening its doors to help. She wanted to do something too.

Instead of receiving presents for her birthday, she donated money to the New Canadians Centre.

Like your previous support to the New Canadians Centre, Sarah’s donation created a ripple effect. It inspired her mother Katherine, to hire Magali Sperling Beck, a newcomer from Brazil.

Magali was a familiar face at the New Canadians Centre. A regular attendee of the Women’s Group and a volunteer, she was eager to make community connections that would lead to employment opportunities.

Because of you, Magali has that chance! 

You can help to ensure hundreds of newcomers receive the support they need to develop skills, improve language and like Magali, join the workforce! You can see Magali’s success story below.

Supporters like you have been helping the New Canadians Centre bring people together for 40 years! In 1979, a group of community members came together to sponsor refugees fleeing the communist regime in Vietnam. It was the start of what would eventually become the New Canadians Centre.

A loyal and dedicated community builder, you understand the important role new Canadians play in the economic, social and cultural health of our community. 

Please continue to show your support for newcomers with a tax deductible gift today!

Newcomers who possess the drive and determination to leave behind everything they have known and loved to start all over, are counting on you!

Thank you!
