Every Child has a Right to Read!
Countless children across Canada struggle with their reading. According to some studies, over 40% of Canadian elementary age students have inadequate reading skills. Canada is one of the most diverse nations in the world, with over 20% of the population born outside of the country. With millions of Canadian children being raised in households where English is not the spoken language, support for literacy is paramount.
Pancreatic Cancer Canada is committed to improving pancreatic cancer survival by fostering research and creating
hope through awareness, education and patient support.
Their focus continues to be supporting research into detection, effective treatment options and ultimately, finding a cure, raising awareness, providing support and resources to patients and their families, advocating for increased funding.
The Food4Kids program was inspired by a 10 year old boy, who waited outside the locked doors of a school breakfast program. The program was to start at 8:15 and the child stood outside at 7:15 in the dark, in the cold and alone. He explained he had not had any food on the weekend and was hungry. Could he please have some food? Their mission is to provide healthy food to elementary school students from at-risk, low-income or disadvantaged homes with limited or no food during weekend periods and summer months. They believe child and youth hunger is a community responsibility and by working together we can provide a solution-based program that addresses, responds to and eventually can eliminate child hunger in our shared community.
541 Eatery & Exchange’s mission is to address the needs of the local Hamilton community in tangible ways by providing delicious, nutritious meals affordable to all run by a team of volunteers. 541 works on a button system. These buttons are a type of currency. Each is worth $1 and can be purchased by customers from the cashier. The buttons go into the button jar and are used by others who can't afford a nutritious meal that day. No matter the person’s background or ability or inability to pay, all customers receive the same treatment and food, all in the same place. Please note that the receipt will be issued by Compass Point Bible Church for donations to 541 Eatery & Exchange.
