Purple for CAS

purple ribbon

Public school students in Winchester Ontario are invited to wear purple on Friday, October 19 to support the children's aid society. Fixcas favors reduction of child abuse and neglect. We are not so sure supporting Ontario's children's aid societies is an effective way to do so.
