Dr. Roz’s Healing Place is very lucky to benefit from countless fundraising events that have been initiated by members of the local community who are passionate about raising awareness on behalf of the Centre. We would like to thank the following groups and individuals who have worked to raise funds & awareness for Dr. Roz’s Healing Place:
Dr. Roz’s Healing Place Youth Ambassadors
Sir William Osler High School Avon Empowerment Necklace Fundraising Campaign
In March 2012, Mary Anne Duke, Child and Youth Worker from Sir William Olser High School, contacted Dr. Roz’s Healing Place with news that she initiated a school wide fundraising campaign selling Avon Empowerment Necklaces. $3 of each necklace sale would be donated to the Healing Place in order to support the programs and services offered. With the help of students from Mrs Pozzo”s leadership class who advocated for the sale of these beautiful Empowerment Necklaces, a total of $234 dollars was raised for the Healing Place. We would like to especially thank Ms Duke and Mrs Pozzo for their passion and commitment towards pushing this campaign forward. To Principle Mrs Pelaia, the Staff, Administration, and Students at Sir William Olser High School, we are so grateful for your support!
Snug as a Bug Kids Helping Kids Gift Box Donation
In 2009, Dr. Roz’s Healing Place had the privilege of meeting Sophia Gran-Ruaz, a young woman who began the Snug as a Bug Kids Helping Kids Charity 6 years ago, providing 10,000 packages to children and youth in 9 shelters across the GTA. For approximately 10 months of each year, Sophia collects donations from over 60 companies and organizes the products into age and gender appropriate categores. On their annual Packing Day, all items are organized into bags and delivered to shelters across the GTA, with the help of over 60 volunteers. This year, we had the special opportunity to benefit from care packages once again. To Sophia and the Snug as a Bug Kids Helping Kids donors, volunteers and to all the behind the scenes supporters, we would like to thank you for your support.
Thank You Deloitte: Impact Day
Dr. Roz’s Healing Place is a proud and grateful community partner of Deloitte. For the past 3 years, we have been a small part of Deloitte’s “Impact Day” here at our centre, and we couldn’t be happier for their generosity and support. Impact Day involves Deloitte professionals from across Canada that take part in a firm-wide day of volunteer service, dedicating their time to working together on community projects and supporting the communities in which they work and live. Instead of going to work in the office, they go to work in the community. Trying to make a difference in ways that will better our local communities, they contribute to “hands-on” projects like painting, tree planting and in our case, prepare and cook a wonderful lunch and dinner here at our centre for all of our clients. We serve women and children from across the world, and the Deloitte staff always accommodates our client’s religious and cultural necessities.
