Please join us for a Celebrity Server Fundraising Dinner on April 16 from 5-8pm. Boston Pizza will donate a portion of proceeds to the Sudbury Manitoulin Children's Foundation during the dinner hours! Not only that, but some great volunteers from the SMCF are going to be helping to serve your tables!
How does the Sudbury Manitoulin Children's Foundation help the youth of Sudbury? Here's a bit of information about them:
o The mission of our “Send-A-Kid-To-Camp” program is to provide quality summer camping experiences for disadvantaged children regardless of race, religion or gender
o The mission of our “Bursary Program” is to provide financial assistance to past or present wards of the crown who wish to pursue a post secondary education
o We promise that every child referred to our “Send-A-Kid-To-Camp” program will be placed in a summer camp
About our Charity
“Send-A-Kid To Camp” (SAKTC) program – Summer camp offers children many opportunities and skills, and if nothing else, gives them a break from stressful home situations. We support camps across Ontario and assist the whole camping experience by covering all camp fees, assisting with transportation, and providing camp necessities
Bursary Program – Over the years it has become clear that – although child abuse prevention is an important component of assisting high risk children – education is the key to breaking the generational cycle of abuse, unemployment and welfare dependency that plagues these children. Without family support, youth must support themselves and pay for their education through part time work and student loans. Some of these youth find the financial burden of school too daunting and do not proceed with their dreams. Bursaries would help alleviate some of the financial burden and encourage them to continue their education
The Sudbury Manitoulin Children Foundation (SMCF) has one of the largest geographic areas in the province. This jurisdiction of Sudbury and Manitoulin is almost 50,000 sq. km – with a population of 200,000+ of which 50,000+ of them are children.
Goals, Objectives, Times Lines
Our goal is to continue to be able to provide camping opportunities to all of the disadvantaged children who are referred to the “Send-A-Kid To Camp” program by 49+ various local social agencies
In February of each year, the SMCF’s Board Of Directors commit to a set budget for the “Send-A-Kid To Camp” program for that coming summer. The objective is to raise enough money to send these children to camp and to expand on the initial number committed. Monies will need to be received, at the latest, by September/October to pay final camp expenses.
Please plan on coming to dinner to support this great organization! And PLEASE SHARE THIS FACEBOOK EVENT!!!
