- Each year 1 in 5 West Islanders turns to a community groups for help.
- Their needs are real and pressing and include: food security, cancer, autism, at-risk youth, bullying, substance abuse, depression and suicidal thoughts and more.
- Half – 30,000 of those helped - are children and youth under the age of 25.
In 2013, a survey of the community organizations we support revealed a shortfall of over two million dollars to keep up with current demands. This amount represents the “gap” they have identified between their ability to offer vital programs and the additional amount required to ensure that no one is put onto a waiting list.
LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER!
Our goal in 2016-2017 is to raise $1.2 million for 40 local community groups that help West Islanders in need. Your donation would make a real difference.
