TD Bank Helps Wreck Families
March 21, 2011 permalink
The TD Bank is donating to the Stormont CAS to help send children to summer camp. According to CAS:
The children for whom the Society is raising funds are not the children in the care of the Society. ... The Society’s Camp Fund will be directed towards community children with whom our agency is involved by working with their families in the hope that the children will not have to come into our care.
This statement carries the same credibility as others from social services. In one case on fixcas summer camp for Howard was part of the process of destroying the family.
CAS Helping Families - Supported by TD Canada Trust
Summer is approaching and the Children’s Aid Society of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry for a second year has taken steps to help families during those long months when children are out of school. The Society received funding from TD Canada Trust in the amount of $1,000.00 again this year. The Society is attempting to provide this opportunity for children who do not have this privilege without assistance from the community. A long summer can place stress on a family. Last year, the Society raised over $10,000.00 and 34 children were sent to camp. A Christmas card from one family whose children attended camp states:
“Thank you for everything CAS did throughout the year we were very happy and thankful to have experience(d) a week at a Camp Kagama…!”
The children for whom the Society is raising funds are not the children in the care of the Society. These children are funded through the Society’s budget and appropriate opportunities are provided. The Society’s Camp Fund will be directed towards community children with whom our agency is involved by working with their families in the hope that the children will not have to come into our care. Due to the lack of parental resources, these youth are left out of the rich experiences that summer camps develop and promote. With the help of the community, a difference can be made for these youth. The Society hopes that through our partnership and support from sponsors like TD Canada Trust the camp project may develop to the point that every child in SD&G could be offered the camp experience whether or not they receive direct service from the Society.
Donations can be forwarded directly to the Society made payable to the CAS – Camp Fund. If anyone would like to obtain further information on this project, you may contact the Society at 613-933-2292.
