Summer Camp 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the City of Toronto announced that it would not run summer camps this year. No doubt many other organizations will follow this lead. Summer camp is something that the foundation believes is a very important piece of programming in underserved communities. For some parents who are working and don’t have the means to pay for additional childcare, they can enroll their children into many camps across the city for free or a very nominal cost.
This has prompted the foundation to start an initiative to get art supplies and other resources into as many kids’ hands as possible. It started off with a chalk and other supplies box. Initially the planned to work with Raising Artists to provide a few of these boxes to some families. Recognizing the need was great they didn’t stop there but set a goal to raise enough money to distribute 1,000 of these boxes to kids across the city. In doing so we have been working with various community leaders and the city to expand the program and reach as many children as possible.
Your support is an integral piece to helping us reach our goal.
Thank you in advance!
